      2014 GLI Edition 30

      So I picked up a 2014 edition 30 GLI back in December and it already had an APR carbonino intake installed. I've recently discovered that it doesn't have the adapter with the vacuum line APR sells for the gen3 EA888 engines. Car runs fine but I should probably have the line. I recently got the correct adapter but it doesn't include any instructions and any install instructions I've seen online make no reference to it. Can someone help me figure this out?!

      Thanks!

      you should already have a vacuum line running from the bottom of the intake manifold to the intake on the drivers side of the manifold. the previous owner could have removed the line, but i would guess its probably just tucked away somewhere, so look for the line that is not connected to anything between the intake and intake manifold. you will most likely need a longer line, but its a bitch to get that line off the manifold, so i just took a vacuum connector and put another piece of hose running to the intake. it is probably totally fine without it attached, ive never heard of anyone having any issues, it isnt an actual vacuum line so you dont have a leak or anything, but i just have mine attached for peace of mind.

      Does anyone happen to know what that line goes to?

      Finally found the location for the vacuum line. Previous owner took the line off so all that was left was the nipple under the intake manifold. Went to then install the APR adapter only to discover they cut the flared end off of the OEM intake boot so the adapter now doesn't fit. Just had to order a new/used replacement off of eBay.

      Some people just shouldn't be allowed to use tools.

      I'm not 100% sure what the vacuum line does, but the little info I could find points to it possibly just being a filtered air line for the vacuum system. Would kind of make sense since I wasn't throwing any codes or had a CEL. I'm assuming it was drawing in air no problem for the system to use but it just wasnt filtered which I'm not too happy about.
