    If I delete the pump and run a line from the intake mani straight to the booster will I have any issues with codes or passing emissions? Also how with this effect braking? Thanks guys!

    Think there's a check valve in that line, or may be in the inlet of the booster.... one way or another, you need a check valve. And if you run a rubber line, they make 11/32" (not 3/8") DOT approved brake booster vacuum line for this purpose. Rubber hose will get hot and collapse.

    Edit: That was way too helpful... leave all the emissions stuff, you're a fucking idiot, hug a tree fggt.

    on my car the check valve was by the firewall.

    I deleted that suction pump and had no codes (or other issues). And like he said, a rubber hose will heat up and collapse but that's what I used because I couldn't find the DOT stuff. I kept an eye on the hose and since the diameter was large I didn't have a problem. It's not the right way to do it though.
