Default vac gauge

I currently have a vac gauge hooked up n my second gen 06 n/a. And after a lil thinkin and pondering. I realized I hooked the line to my cruize vac line and I'm prety dang sure that's y my cruze don't work. That's not my question tho.

My question is. Where is a good location to tee n the hose for the sending unit for the vac sensor? Any one got any ideas?

Brake booster.

You have a purge hose and brake booster hose on the rear left side of your upper intake manifold.

It is possible that your work caused the cruise to go south. However I have no problems with my vacuum gauge being Tee-d off the cruise control vacuum system right at the manifold. I used a universal Tee and salvaged OEM pieces.

Default Re: vac gauge

Disconnect the gauge and let it be off line. Reconnect the original OEM cruise vacuum and check the cruise control operation.
Proceed as necessary with the new knowledge.
