Is the brake booster vac hose easy to find?
Very easy to find if its a turbo'ed car.

For a Non-turbo, you open up the engine airfilter compartment and slowly pour it directly into the Throttle Body, very slowly and the engine should stall... etc. follow the same procedure up top.

Also im planing on doing it today and just wondering if i can do the oil change as well the same day. I have almost full tank and just interested if its okay to leave some of the stuff in gas tank after changing oil.

Also, how did you suck it in trough intake. For the one towards the headlights its just a pipe, and the one beside the battery, i have seen people using T fittin, did you do that too?
