Funny you had that split - I added the T for my cruize control and when they did the recall it drove them crazy wondering where the extra hose went - they cut it out of course and threw away my T. Had to redo it - they said to connect to the intake manifold somewhere else but there is no other place to tap into the manifold.

Wow you got lucky! Nice work!

I noticed some smoke a few weeks ago and it ended up being the intake valve seals. I had to spend a weekend pulling the head and replacing them. I would have been so excited if it were something as simple as a split vacuum hose...

You lucky dog!

I knew it probably wasn't something serious - the car's only got 5000 miles on it. And my smoke was black. I bet yours was more blue from the valve seals.

Yes, definitely the SG helped figure this one out. Seeing open loop, no codes and the MAP value helped figure it all out in the end.

JanGeo: I went through the same thing looking for somewhere to put the cruise vacuum line. We both ended up at the same place - there really weren't any other good options.

ROFLMAO@ 5000 miles. I know it's true but it's just funny.

Darin's not one of those suckers who buys a car with 150k on it just because it's newer.

Darin got lucky. I'm not going to pay $10k for a 2000 civic with 50k miles. I'll get something below 120k.

I was just patient. I'll admit finding a 7 y/o car with 2400 km on it was pretty extreme, but I watched the ads very closely for a year and saw 3 or 4 Suzukiclones within an hour driving distance, each with under 30,000 km on the clock. These were all 7-11 yr old cars priced $3-4K. They're out there.

Just a question about vacuum with the 3-cylinder. Would you mind checking your reading at idle with the engine warmed up for me? Your low-mileage engine may give me an idea of what my vacuum should be at.

EDIT: Oh, whoops...that's 14.8 psi? Darn, I thought it was in. Hg. of vacuum. Well, if you could give me a number anyway maybe I can do a conversion and see where it ends up.

I was a bit surprised about the 14.8 myself, since my ecu goes all the way up to 27" or somethingsuch.
