Just picked up a mechanical vacuum gauge.  Figured it was a good tool to have.  Wanted to check my exhaust/engine vacuum and see how it was.

Wondering where would I hook this up to on a 2001 2.3L?

I've read it needs to be after the throttle body but not exactly sure where to attach.  I have several fittings + a T-fitting.

Attached is the OTC vacuum gauge I have.

Thanks much,
-Nigel

Find any hose attached to the intake manifold post throttle body and its fine.

agreed the whole upper intake / plenum, should be under similar vacuum conditions for testing
Brake booster or PCV port work well
