A vacuum manifold is just a big splitter. It converts one vacuum source line into as many as you want.

What's not clear is what you mean by "trying to find a way to keep most of my vaccume stuff". What is it that you're trying to do? Are you putting on different carbs or something? Right now you have a solution in search of a problem.

nice! what is the $15 for though? lol! I am real tired! haha

You can make a vacuum manifold with some PVC pipe and barb fittings.

I guess in your other thread you said you're doing a rebuild, so if that's the case just use tape to mark where all the lines go and put everything back when you're done. A lot of the emissions stuff you could live without if you don't have to pass testing or an inspection. There was writeup around here somewhere.

^^+1. I had done a writeup on getting rid of the vacuum line mess, but mine is a DX (carbed, not PGM-fi). I'm not sure how much of the factory stuff you have to keep and what you can get rid of on a Si due to the computer and fuel injection. I wish I had a Si to experiment with....

No just the base model whatever that is?
So yours is carbed then? If it's fuel injected it's an Si, if it's carbed it's a DX. If it's carbed then check out my thread titled "Untangling the spaghetti and removing unneccessaries" in the How To's. I eliminated most of the vacuum lines and black boxes on my DX and did a writeup with some pics on what I did and how I rerouted stuff... :Rock:
