back in my rx7 days, there were really decent write ups on removing the copious amounts of vacuum lines on the top fo the engine (the rotary guys called it the rats nest)
is there any such write up for doing that to an ea81? not just for elimating vacuum lines on the engine, but also elimating as many as possible on the carb

After what you just went through to replace a clutch you want to start tearing out vacuum lines:confused: :confused: . If you really want to clean it out get a Weber carb. Other then that if it runs good........ leave it alone:-p . Tim

I want to tidyup the engine bay for one. And two, I dont think the vacuum lines are routed quite right, it doesnt run the way it did before the engine was pulled. Miles guessed at at some of the vacuum linesI'd love to go with the weber, but I can't afford one

Other than what Tim said, I can't help you here.

That is one mess of vac lines on a Soob, I get lost easily trying to chase them down. Another reason I went Weber myself.
