Vacuum lines refresh

Hey guys,

I'm going to replace all the vacuum lines as a preventive maintenance and need to know exactly what all I need.

I'm thinking these two between the vacuum canisters and the actuators:

What else do I need?

Thanks!

I would just buy a few FT of 3.5mm or 4mm vacuum line and run that. No need to replace the plastic part unless it's broken. You need to go from the dual vacuum fitting on the big line on the driver side, to the small plastic lines that go over the valve cover. From the plastic lines to the vacuum canisters. Than from the canisters to the boost solenoids. From there you'll find some small lines that go to different T fittings and after that you need to go from the fittings to the wastegates. The last parts is the hardest. I changed mine when I did my turbos.

Same one I used. I used 3.5, but I think 4mm would have been better. So done more reading and find out what size everyone else uses.

Thanks!
Don't bother buying OEM lines. As mentioned, buy a bunch of tubing and replace each line individually. Remove a line, cut a piece of hose to the same length, install, and repeat.

I bought 17' of the 3.5mm line from Verocious and it worked great. I think I had 4-5' left over, but it's always best to have extra.
