Default New Vacuum "T"

Holy crap I went to the dealer and bought the vacuum hose setup (can't buy just the T) and the second I put it in drive and touched the gas the car jumped foward. Replacing that thing moved my throttle response way up. If I hit the gas a little bit it does exactly what it would do if I hit the gas harder before. So I pretty much fixed a problem I didn' know I had because obviously that fitting was leaking alot longer than I thought. Anyways I was wondering if with that thing leaking is it possible that it caused some of my KR? The way I figure is with that hose leaking the MAP sensor was getting wrong readings. So when at full boost the MAP sensor must have picked up less boost than I really had and gave the motor less fuel than it needed. But then again the MAF sensor has more to do with fuel tables... IDK

I just cant wait to see what the throttle feels like wide open. Its pouring rain right now so flooring it is useless untill I hit 50.

Moving to the Mechanical section. This is a repair, not a Performance upgrade.
