Many times you won't be able to see that the white rigid vacuum line is leaking. And it seems to go bad everywhere along its length, even where it runs through the loom. It is usually the problem...

The stock IDI downpipe is not like the one for the PowerStroke. In fact, almost nothing on the IDI is like the PS. It is crushed and a major source of restriction. Without changing the downpipe,...
