    Less vac after FMIC?

    hi guys finally got round to fitting a FMIC was pretty straight forward but got a cheap ebay jobby and was a nightmare with the drivers side blah blah blah, finally got everything back together started it up and on idle i have a vac of -0.6 bar (-9ish) after a few seconds it drops to -0.7 but i used to sit on 0.8/9 is this just down to the extra length of pipe work etc or do i have a leek in the pipping?

    Thanks
    Tim

    You should always check for leaks after working on the intake system.
    but those readings seem to be ok.

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    I see the vegetables have made it into the pipe work again, damn those leeks.
