    There was another power-train engineer who discussed the turbo 2.3 gearbox development and vibration and noise updates last year. Those guys normally hang out with certifications, so they have access to development info.

    An earlier non EFi fuel engineer will help you out.

    Ok so a few more hours in and we are 90% through the vacuum line tracing/fixing. I've added the two lines for the A/C side (right) SOLV and part of the anti-backfire device as well as completed the A/CL BI MET lines. She is idling and running very well and spools great except for now after the other vacuum fixes I have a concerning carb backfire/poof with a cloud of black smoke when on full throttle and I put the clutch in to shift gears (so much for adding in the anti-backfire device!). If I make very slow shifts it's no problem. This is no buenos and must be fixed so I won't do any further full pulls. I'm sourcing the missing A/CL TVS from National Parts Depot so I can fully connect the AIR BPV/ANTI BF system which I hope will solve this issue as I don't want to blow up the turbo carbon seal. I am doubtful but may play with the timing again in the meantime.

    My AFR gauge still does not read at idle by wiring directly to battery so I think it needs to be replaced in order to trust the readings for fine tuning.

    I do not see the FLTR that connects to the AIR BPV in my engine compartment as that upper port is closed. Does anyone know what it's function is and have a picture of said FLTR?

    Finally this is the Vacuum Control Valve right?

    This pic is my old setup with lower VCV port going to the IVV and the other to the air port next to the primary carb mixture screw. The IVV lines are now fixed per the VECI diagram (to small A/CL CWM port and to the formerly open EGR port) but the VCV lower port is now open which is supposed to go to the E port on the carb with a SA FV which I also don't have). It is supposed to go to a tee then to the VDV then to the purge canister center line which is also open at the moment. Looks like I need to source a VDV and SA-FV in order to finalize all of this.

    Lastly I have a large vacuum line (turquoise stripe) running from the firewall RT corner area to the large A/CL CWM port but I can't ID this Line on the VECI. Anyone know what this does? Does the stripe designate something specific? At the split valve one goes in the firewall behind the glove box somewhere while the other one disappears behind the fender.


    Here's my Purge CV with middle orange?/pink? (it splits into two lines not sure why as the VECI only shows as single line; same thing on the Left SOLV lines where both split into two then back to one...strange) that needs to route to VCV.

    Well I have my new red NOS TVS and retaining clip from NPD as well as the replacement AFR gauge from AEM. My gauge was deemed bad after the brake clean rag test confirmed the gauge was not reading accurately. Will install and test this weekend and if all goes well take a trip to the smog man for a test. Already purchased my ticket for Goodguys show end of the month so going to make this happen!

    The line running to the passenger side fender and through the firewall to the HVAC is from manifold vacuum to the HVAC controls. The line teed to go under the fender as there is normally a vacuum reservoir there to provide a constant source for the HVAC controls. The Tee fitting probably has a check valve in it so that nothing else can pull vacuum from this reservoir except HVAC valves from under the dash.

    Thanks for confirming Jack.

    It was a stunning, sunny day so we got the TVS and all the vacuum lines hooked up and triple checked. We are currently running without the VDV and SA FV that route in the lines from the VCV to the CARB and Purge CV on the right side of the diagram. We checked the parts store and they could not find a cross reference for either Ford part# nor do I have any specs on them so I still have a little hunting for those two last items. There are a couple carb vacuum lines that I can't decode (neither could my carb guy) but think we have it right and they all have a home.

    The BAR referee shop said I don't have to see them for the smog test and I can go to any smog station so I may run it as is without the VDV and SA FV and see what happens.

    Otherwise it's running well and we hard wired the replacement AEM brand AFR wideband gauge but unfortunately it too is not reading right so need to still figure out what's going on with this before I get on it for fear of going lean. Time for some cleaning, detailing, install the NOS BBS caps, address the brakes and cracked steering rack bellows. The list is getting short in time for Goodguys! Hope you all are having a great weekend.
