Installed My Header, WJ Intake and "703" Injectors...

But now my cruise control for some odd reason will not work. I put it all back together the same way that the TB cables came off.

And now I found out that only my air will blow out the defrost only.


But now that I did my intake, header and injectors, the Jeep feels totally different. Idle is soooo much smoother, I can now accelerate on the hwy with out having to down shift. Off the line the Jeep is a lot peppier. The Jeep really feels good right at the 2K RPM mark.


Now I cannot wait to re-do my entire exhaust. Gonna be 2.5" from the header collector all the way out back.. Going with a MagnaFlow metallic spun cat, as for a muffler still havent figured one out just yet.

check your vaccum lines for the cruise control problem.

Yeah I checked all the vacuum lines yesterday, everything looks in tact. Which vacuum lines does the cruise control use?

Everything blowing out the defrost is the classic symptom of a vacuum leak.

Tennis ball check. I've got a write up for it around here somewhere. Perfect little tool for a vacuum leak

First Pic - Vacuum line for cruise control



Second Pic - Vacuum line for HVAC



Third Pic - Same vaccum line for HVAC where I had to re-locate it on the side of the intake

Is the check valve installed backwards?... by the brake booster?

I'm not sure.. I can take it off and re-install it the other way.. I did have it off completely do lengthen it..


On a side note..

Well I took my battery and battery try out, traced the vaccum line that goes to the black vacuum box and everything was fine there.

I connected everything back up, grabbed my break cleaner and started spraying the vacuum lines with no changes in the idle of the motor.


Where is my vaccum leak? Maybe an intake leak? My jeep idles perfectly though so I am confused

If the check valve is backwards, the vacuum is blocked.

I flipped the check valve around and nothing changed. I left it after I flipped it..
