Vacuum gauge Mitsubishi Lancer

Hello!

I bought a mechanical vacuum gauge with a T connector. I searched on alot of places but I really cant decide which hose to connect the T in?

I found a shabby picture of the exact car that I have.

I think that I should plug it in somewhere around the ECI MULTI but is there anyone who can say which line is correct? I dont want to break a fuel line or something!


Thanks!

Greetings from cold sweden!

Green arrows show the way

The most reliable source of manifold vacuum is the brake booster hose. You will probably need to buy a tee that will adapt between sizes. Be sure to use clamps so you don't lose brake vacuum when you need it the most .

Usually any line that has a high vacuum at idle is good. As long as your show a vacuum at cruise that goes to zero at full throttle you probably can use the gauge as it is just a relative indicator of engine load.

The power brake line is a good source but I usually refrain from cutting into that line in the interest of brake reliability.

Look for a line that goes into the intake manifold some place rather than into the air body.

This looks like a good place to Tee into.
