i/we have been looking at the boost gauge at a steady speed. i think 80 is now the reference.
thats hard for me to do around here and stay steady for very long. 70 might be better.
as the steady speed goes up, the vacuum gets less, to the point that at some steady speed, you are in boost. i wonder what speed is "0" .
i set the cruise on my old volvo 760 turbo at 120 for around 5 or 6 miles one time. vacuum gauge was steady in the boost.

i orignal thought or hope was that now i am seeing less vacuum at a certain speed, does that mean i have fixed all my vacuum leaks. i was thinking if i am sucking in air, my vacuum will be less.?

the old days guys tuned a motor by vacuum. i dont know how though.
