  1. Bwahahaha! Wait, what? Bwahahaha! Oh my god... I needed that. Thanks for the laugh...
  2. Todd, there is a guy on Youtube that swapped a L86 cam into his L83. His name is pmoore4321. He might be on this site, I don't know. https://www.youtube.com/user/pmoore4321
  3. Have to run a line from the booster to a vacuum source on the intake, and/or catch can/vacuum canister. .
  4. I never found one, so I made my own. Welded a 3/8" bung and use a plug.
  5. The word you're looking for is hygroscopic. And no it isn't.
  6. They probably broke the connector mount by leaning and rest their arm on the fuse panel while changing the vacuum pump. Arm probably slipped off when they lost their balance, hit the connector and snapped the mount off. From what I'm told, most mechanics lay on the front of the truck, with their upper body in the engine bay. Unbolt the steering shaft, then can get to the vacuum pump bolts. When I pulled mine off, I removed it through the fender well. I removed the liner, then the steering shaft and it was easier to get to the bolts. But, mechanics are on a time crunch, so they lean over the engine bay.
  7. I was planning on deleting the vacuum pump before I bolted on the supercharger. I was planning on drilling and tapping the intake manifold in the back. Screwing a NPT to barbed fitting and plumbing it to the brake booster. I just never got around to doing it. I think you should do it, I bet it'd work great...
  8. When I bolted the supercharger on, there is an extra 1/2" port on the side that's not used. It's original intent is for hooking up vacuum to the brake booster. Qwank, on this site, gave me the idea. I bought the threaded plugs for deleting the vacuum pump. Cut the belt off, unbolted the pump, screwed in the oil plugs. Ran a 1/2" vacuum hose from the 1/2" port on the supercharger to the brake booster. I also Tee'd a vacuum canister into the line as well, incase there wasn't enough volume from the supercharger port. Works perfect, can't tell a difference in brake pedal feel or pressure, from stock.
  9. I got my letter yesterday, threw it away. I don't have a vacuum pump anymore...
  10. What's your plans for gear break-in, since you're in SC? I'm in Lancaster, SC, East Coast is in Raleigh, about 162 miles, one way.
  11. Before this thread turns into another shit-show. I got quoted $2300, out the door for 3.73's from 3.08's by East Coast, in Raleigh. $2800 from a place in Charlotte, NC. Both places told me 4.10's would be close or the same in price. Labor was $100/hr for 9 hrs from East Coast, I don't remember what the labor was for the shop in Charlotte. I think your parts list and prices are comparable, for the different regions. I have the 5.3 with 6 spd and a TVS1900 supercharger. I'll probably get the 3.73's installed this year. Bottom line; it's your money, do what you want. I don't ask opinions from forums, because I don't really care what everybody else thinks. And you have no way of knowing who REALLY knows what they're talking about. Most people are ass-clowns anyway, me included... So, you do you, and F everyone else.
  12. The only way to get proof, is someone needs to buy 2 of the same trucks, put a catch can on one, leave the other one stock. Drive both the same amount and the same way, put 20,000+ miles on both, then pull the intakes off and take a look at the valves. Until then, it's a pissing match and the thread/s blow up and people get pissed off either way. Shrug...
