Hello, I am wondering how I should hook up the vacuum line off of my mk1 distributor (on mk2 16v) to my intake manifold?? Should it be hooked into each port seperatly? Or can it hook into just one port (#1)?

Also is there anything else that needs to be hooked into the manifold??

Thanks, Scott

You can run the vacuum advance off just one port....or not run it at all, if you so desire. It really only advances the timing when under deceleration to something like 45 degrees advanced to burn off excess fuel. My dizzy has now been converted to mechanical only with a modified curve - I do not have the vacuum canister connected at all.

So it will all work fine if it is just left unconnected? or did you modify it in order to "eliminate" the vacum advance..


Thanks, Scott

The car will run the same with it or without it....but you will notice a higher fuel usage at cruise and when decelerating.

My distributor has a base timing now of 14 degrees and a max number of 34 degrees at 5000rpm or so. So yes, it has had the curve changed.

You will need a vacuum feed for your brake booster tapped into one or more runners of your manifold. One is generally enough for regular driving but if you have monster cams or are doing long circuit racing a feed off each runner might be the go.
