    Ok, I'm pulling my engine tomorrow and preparing to put in the 350. I want to get rid of some of these vacuum hoses. I've heard taking some of them off will actually hurt the performance of the Rochester Quadra-jet. Which ones can I remove without reducing the performance. Anyone have any suggestions? Should I just leave them all on? Not worried about smog inspections, I'll have to register it as Non-operable when I get to Cali anyway!

    Thanks,
    Bo

    I usually use these lines, manifold line to PCV valve and charcoal canister, manifold line to vacuum brake booster, advance line to distributor, vacuum line to dash controls if it has A/C, line to transmission modulator if needed. it depends on what emissions stuff may still be working, but those are the basics.
