I initially did this one color for each size as follows.
- 3 meters of 6mm green high temperature silicone line
- 3 meters of 5mm red high temperature silicone line
- 3 meters of 4mm purple high temperature silicone line
- 3 meters of 3mm blue high temperature silicone line
Most of the red is 5mm is used on the 4x4 actuator if you don't have a 4x4 you can buy just 1m and have enough.
I had problems with getting the hookups right for the 4x4 actuator so I went back and color coded it.
Red 5mm - hose from the connector off by itself on the actuator (left it red actually because this one is so difficult to get to with the engine installed) to the lower position on the pASSENGER SIDE vsv
Orange 5mm - "0" on the actuator to the upper position on the VSV closest to the driver
Lime Green 5mm - "2" on the actuator to VSV this line splits and one goes to the bottom of the VSV closest to the driver the other end goes to the top of the other VSV
Purple 4mm - unmarked on actuator to intake vacuum splitter
Purple 4mm - intake vacuum splitter to MAP sensor
It may be that my sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
