Great write up, I have two questions, I saw in one of your pictures a tube which I see on my car but I was wondering what is it and where it goes (Picture attached).
also I have a whistling sound that I thought it was the ventilation valves but I checked them and them seem to be ok and new. the ventilation hose was recently replaced though because it was broken and leaking oil. Any suggestions?
Thanks

I believe it is a ventilation hose for the transfer case, which terminates under the plastic head covers. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.


Very clean valve train, by the way.

It is a ventilation hose but I think it might be for the transmission. I may be wrong but my memory says transmission.

Can anyone share some info on the brake booster hose and where it connects to I will ofcourse purchase a new one . Trying to understand why after so much engine work done VSS etc spark plugs. I'm still getting 9.5 mpg on the computer idrive and cluster ... first I will start with this Mickey Mouse nipple they put on my brake booster

Where does the real hose go and where does it stop

Vacuum hose:

Vacuum pump:

Side note there's a pretty cheap rebuild kit for that vacuum pump. I bought mine from BMP Designs (I can't find the link though so they may have closed up), but there's plenty of eBay sellers, or some have just measured and purchased from Harbor Freight. I'm assuming yours was leaking at some point with all that RTV...

Oh yeah, sorry I was thinking the wrong hose. But yeah when I first saw that nipple I thought a hose used to be there and broke off.
