No offense man, but uhh you see my sig? That'* the EGR Valve .

The FPR looks similar to the EGR Valve, however it is on the Fuel Rail, which is close to the EGR Valve.

I feel for ya. I don't what I would do if that happened - I love this car. Eventually (judging nothing catostrophic happens) I want to restore this car to its original beauty. My paint is in super rough shape (by the looks of it this is common with 87-91), and my trim is damaged in some spots, although there isn't much rust. Just today some weiner kids chucked a snowblock in front of my car as I was going about 60km/h, it smacked right into my bumper and left a nice new scuff mark to add to the collection. If I wasn't on a busy street I would have got out and tore them a new one. :(

Anyway, about the hoses I'm probably going to buy them tomorrow during my spare at Part Source (cdn. equivalent to AutoZone I would suppose). Hopefully it will get done this weekend however I think I'm coming down with something.

Coming down where? You coming to the states? With what?

Vitamin C, Calcium, and Ekinatia [can't spell it]. You'll be better in a few days . Take two more than the recomended dose.. no you won't OD, but it'll help you tons. And eat.. don't take all that **** on an empty stomach.

Thanks for the rememdy, it doesn't sound like I'll be doing much this weekend. I felt like a pile of crap this morning but I still got out, and I went to Part Source at lunch. They want $50 (cdn) for a vacuum line kit (with a bunch of diameters), and thats all they really had. The stuff is cheap as hell on ebay ($10) so I may as well just do that. I wish we had autozone here by the sounds of it. I just found out Canadian Tire owns Part Source which would explain it'* crappyness.
