Default DIY '96 Turbo needs finished- vacuum diagram for the 94-97

Here's a link to my cardomain I just set up a day or two ago.

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3245769

First and foremost, thank you for taking time to read this thread.

I need some detailed pics of the vacuum lines on the 1.8L w/ turbo's installed. Specifically I need to know where the lines on the passenger side of the engine bay go. The vac line going to the solenoid on the fuel rail, where's it supposed to go? The vac line closest to the throttle body, where's it go? Is the EGR under the intake against the firewall? (I ask because there's a nipple there that has been cut off and capped) I have no idea where to route some of them as I bought this car halfway finished and have had one hell of a time figuring out what the problem was and finally on 2/13/09 getting it to idle. Ended up being the fuel lines on the passenger side of the engine were criss-crossed. lol I didn't mess w/ them, so I went on troubleshooting for weeks trying to figure out wtf was wrong w/ this thing. Haynes repair manual doesn't show detailed pics of fuel lines, anyway, I'm making excuses.

I need to finish the car. I need tuning software for the EMB, correct? And to tune for the supra green tops? I have sent, what was it... Grif-Tech?... emails regarding my car w/ no response, maybe I have the wrong address?

Can someone helpe me out w/ some links and/or pics please?

Thanks fellas

Needs finishing, not needing finished.

There should be a sticker under the hood with a vacuum diagram.

Or search here and I bet you'll find them posted.

Don't know anything about an EMB.

Basically search more and you'll find more info.

I fixed the error, I hope you feel better.

The hood has been replaced and doesn't have any stickers. I'll do more searching and see what comes up, although if someone could provide pics it would make my life a lot easier.

Sometimes search doesn't give any results. Been there done that. Here is a diagram from under the hood of my 96. Let me know if you need anything else. Also, rename the thread to include vacuum diagram for the 94-97. That way it will pop up in future searches.

If someone else has pics of the entire engine bay, possibly up close of the intake side, I'd greatly appreciate it. Google Image search isn't very helpful.

Awesome, man, thanks!

Please include a shot of whatever that is under the intake closest to the firewall (EGR valve?) and the lines going to the solenoid near the throttle body.

After I replace all these vacuum lines, I just need to replace the rotors and pads, re-do the exhaust, clock the turbo downward, re-do the ebay hardpipe kit routing, and find a new oil return line from the turbo since mine is leaking. Install my injectors.... ahh son of a biznitch, this is more work than I thought. lol

You can email the pics to me if you'd like, just PM me for my address.

Here ya go. This might help. Keep in mind that my vac routing has been altered slightly from stock to accommodate my Megasquirt. The front two ports is where the factory cruise and the solenoid, close to the evap can, connects. Basically, you get the idea.

^^^^^^^^ be sure if you have megasquirt to do as he did in the diagram. the rear source is MUCHHHHH cleaner than the front source and will provide a smoother signal for your MAP sensor

Pics are very helpful, thank you so much!

I have E-manage blue, or at least, that's what came w/ the car and I got a laptop for free to tune it... just needing the software now.

This is great info. I hope other people get good use of this thread.
