guys there is a difference from the way chern did his to the way you are going to do yours tho. remember chern is turbo. the intake manifold (the vaccuum effect) for us it is different. it is not a gold bullet sticking out like that. for us its a black hose! remember that.

you can acutally use the VIAS vaccum for the intake manifold , I was very skeptical about seafoam but ive had zero issues with any of my cars.
