Replaced the ICV, thermostat housing, and water pump tonight.

Interesting comparison of the water pumps, the old one is on the left.......the internals look like something I made in shop class!

Super easy DIY....gotta love the O-rings, it makes life very easy!

Stuart.....the Brand is GEBA, Made in Germany, bought it from Bavarian Autosport under the BMW part number.

Thinking ahead, I need to tap in for a boost gauge. The labels on the intake for the vacuum lines say "orig fuel pump reg" and on the other it is "T"'d and is labeled "EGR and exhuast flap". I have something to plug into each of those connections already.

Can I just add another "T" on the one that says "fuel pressure regulator" and pick up vaccum for the boost gauge there?

HELP!!!

I am stuck....I have too many vaccum lines and not enough connections.

The first pic I circled a hose which leads up around back of the firewall and used to plug into my intake. Where it is to connect to now, I do not know. The second picture, I believe is the EGR valve as pictured in the ESS install manual. This connects to the TS2. The third pic is for the fuel pressure regulator which is clearly labeled on the TS2. The four pic is for the exhaust flap which is clearly labeled on the TS2. I also need to hook up a boost gauge.

So I have 5 vaccum lines with only three connections....HELP!!! I am stuck.

For the gauge, you'll just have to T into something. Probably the FPR, but don't quote me on that. I've only worked on turbo'd cars, not S/Cd.

As for the first picture, if it just went into the intake, it can PROBABLY just T in somewhere as well.

Gotta love this forum! DKE46T "Dave" saw I was in need of some help. He stopped over and we managed to get it in!

Thanks again Dave! It's looking good! It amazes me how this thing "just" fits in there!

Thanks Stuart for pointing out to make certain to connect that lower hose "first" before you actually seat the manifold! It's real tight back there!

Stuart, that picture of the unit on the exhaust side was to show where the vaccum line begins. It connected to the bottom side of the OEM intake.

Dave and I went to Autozone and picked up some vaccum fittings. They obviously need to connect somewhere, we're assuming the vacuum fitting on the TS2 labeled "EGR and exhaust flap", leaving the vaccum line for the fuel pressure regulator independant of everything.

Hopefully ESS can chime in for a defintive answer

Dave and I were trying to brain storm on a way to dress up/replace the silcone sleeve. It's an eyesore!

Dont worry we will def get that taken care of. I think I have all the material for it if not ill order some up tommorrow. I think the sleeve will match nicely with the lip of the SSR GT3's after a little polishing.

A polished sleeve would be awesome if you can pull it off....

The vacuum line in picture #1 connects to the electric valve in picture #2. I think its called the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve.

The black and white checkvalve in picture #2 connects to the lower vacuum line coming off the back of the intake manifold. The one with the T-fitting in it. One side of the T-fitting is for the check valve and the other is for your exhaust flap valve shown in picture #4

The hose in picture #3 goes to the upper vacuum hose on the intake manifold marked Original Fuel Pressure Regulator.

Also, I believe the black "tank" is your charcoal filter and should be connected to the fuel vent purge valve which then connects the vacuum side of the TS on the bottom of the intake elbow so it sees vacuum.
