The small black hose that goes through the firewall goes to the connecter with the right angle hose and the green hose goes down to the heater switch on the heater hose under manifold. I fitted the vac tank from the EL to my ED. I'm not too sure if you can just block the hose off or if you have to run the vac tank. Try blocking it off and tell us how you go but if you want to hook up the vac tank its behind the drivers side front guard on the EL.

That thread has the answer, comfirms what I was sure I remembered.

When engine is off or no vacuum, the butterflies are OPEN, so short runners.
Engine starts, butterlifes close under vacuum for long runners, till 3800rpm obviously.


i think its the other way around. you need short runners above 3800rpm so u can get more air. the long runners are used below 3800rpm to improve torque. the manifold is controlled by a solenoid not vacuum from the engine.

You read that thread dude?
When you take the top half off a BBM, the butterflies are open.
The butterflies when closed block off the SHORT path in the BBM, forcing air to take the long runners.
Hit 3800 and the short path opens, allowing air to take BOTH paths, but primarily the shorter.


dude you just repeated exactly what i said


and you repeated what he said in the first place...

TROYMAN, check out my thread as i have pics on how its setup. on EA-ED they dont have the plug on the firewall so you need to connect 2 hoses togather.

at low RPM the butterfly's are closed.

do you know about what wire is what for the switch? there is one red and one green.

i have been told one is positive constant and the other is switched

allright..
thanks heaps ..now im getting somewhere..

at the moment i have no vacuum conected to the bbm .so to try to get the best of both worlds ive got the arm for the bbm tied about half way open and its running pretty good considering i havnt got it set up properly
and im still using the ea ecu..

it still got heaps more low end torque than it did with the old log manifold..
ill keep you posted on how it goes when its set up right

yeah. mine should be running by sunday arvo. so ill do a dodgy connect up with the RPM switch and see how it goes. if the BBM switch works ok then ill hard wire it in and box it up all pretty like.
