    do not buy them, a week or 2 ago my buddy mentioned something about the piece of vac line i gave him that he used going to the EGR was collapsing, so i said hmm, mine doesnt i dont think, well today i got to work, and thought, hey maybe i should check mine, so in the blistering heat, i pop the hood, engine running, and sure enough, the line going to the egr valve was as flat as a pancake, WTF!!!!!:mad: .....i`m thinking about calling the mfg in the morning to give them my piece of mind....what is the worst that could happen with the collapsed vac line?

    worst thing is that the EGR won't work properly and you may throw a code in the computer...
