Son, you have gotta stop worrying about your car and start enjoying the act of driving it.

29.92 is the most vacuum possible, so 23 is great.

The car doesn't have feelings, it won't get hurt. It could break though. Like cool rockin daddy said, if it breaks just build it better.

Install a vacuum gauge on the dash, keep the needle in the "green" optimum zone. You will get good gas mileage and your engine will last forever.
