Procede Solenoid Bypass Question

With the new version 2 ProCede coming out, looks like we're going to be removing the jumper and putting the tube back onto the solenoid.

This was probably the biggest hassle of the entire install for me, yanking that thing out and then TRYING to get it properly seated on the jumper. I don't know if mine is abnormally tight, but I had to use a lot of force while still trying to be careful not to break tho jumper or rip the tubing or snap off the solenoid nipples.

The question I have is if it would harm anything when we go to put the air tube back on the solenoid / or jumper if we applied even a little water around the outside of the nipple as a lubricant for getting the rubber hose attached.

A little trick is too chew on the end of the hose for a few seconds, this lubricates it and softens up the rubber so it slides on easier.

I hate taking those stupid vacuum tubes off. Hopefully putting it back will even out my power delivery when its hot outside.

removing vacuum lines is a pain in the ass, great way to bust a knuckle when the nipple finally releases the line.........oh, and I split my line doing it causing limp mode at full boost.

Be careful.
