    Where does the Vac Hose go?

    As the title sugests im in the process of fitting my DV,my mate says that the vac hose has to be joined to the brake servor via a T-Piece is this correct? Also after inpsecting the brake servor pipe its hard plastic can that be changed to rubber hosing?

    Any advice much apreciated cheers.

    Best thing to do mate, is to get someone who knows what they are doing to show you. Theres a guy in the other thread that may be able to meet you?

    There are quite a few different ways to plumb the buggers in, some setups make some cars run like shit and others they run fine, and vice versa. Like i said, if your not sure then get someone who has some experience with it to help you out.
