    Down pipes for shorties. For the long tubes, you'd have to be a lot better with the cutting and welding to tuck things.

    If you're handy with a pipe cutter and welder... just take about 2-3 inches off the down pipes and the exhaust will tuck nicely.

    The T check valve is set up properly. The plugged side is to the smog pump. I remember dealing with that on my 88 very clearly.

    No. There should be no hiss from the dump valve at all until you press the brake with cruise engaged and then only long enough to break the vacuum in the cruise solenoid. If you hear a hiss already...

    That's easy enough to check. If the smog pump has a vacuum line going up over to the cruise servo, then it has the vacuum helper function.

    if you can maintain, I think, 6-8 inches of vacuum, I think it'll hold cruise. But if it has to open wide, vacuum will bleed off and cruise will fade. The smog pump does help supply vacuum under...
