was messing around this morning and noticed a crack in the EGR tube. I was gonna swap with the 94 but things are different. Can I get some high temp sealant to seal it off or not?

I wouldn't want to use that for a permanent fix, if at all. My personal preference, when dealing with vacuum issues is to replace with new or good used whenever possible. It matters too much, especially when you plan on the performance mods you are, IMO.

I am far from misinformed I never ran anything but 87 or 89 in the olds and nothing less than 91 in any car I have had with a supercharger. I was merely bringing up a point that you can buy 85 in several states...I did find 93 octane gas today but it is 10% ethanol, is this better than chevron 91 or should I go with the 93?

egladman- do you have 7-11 gas over there? we have one here and it is 93.

Don't attempt a temporary fix on that. You'll need the whole bracket with stovepipe to repair it. It bolts to the driver'* side of the front head. That is PART of your KR, as it'* inducing clean fresh air that is not metered by the MAF sensor. Equivalent to a large vacuum leak.

GMPD or the dealer. I replaced mine on the Zilla last summer. For the same reason.
