The '88 models don't have a venturi so it is correct for it to be blocked off there. Here's a video I made on the late vacuum line routing, including the 1988 models. I hope that helps!

Yes, you'll sometimes have to pull the spring tensioner back a bit. They are not all the same, I've had some spot on while others have come in so tight they've destroyed the water pump. Even in the...

If you're not getting tach bounce then it would seem to suggest that the DME isn't getting power. Power for the DME comes from the DME relay when you turn the ignition switch. When you turn the...

As I mentioned, your 1984 model should not have the the lower notch on the flywheel. That notch is about 3mm wide and only on 1987+ engines. These later marks look very different from one another....

I post here too! SmileWavy


The timing marks should line up perfectly, if yours are off even a little then you could have the wrong mark since the early 944's have two lines on the flywheel. Only...

I believe the longer duration cam wasn't used until 1986 or 1987 models years.

If you have an early 944 then you already have the 951 cam. They switched the N/A over to a cam with slightly longer exhaust duration around the 1987 model year. Off the top of my head I believe the...

Yes, where the brake booster connects to the venturi is different depending on the year. If you watch my video on the early vacuum lines you'll see its like the diagram you show. I hope that helps!
