My question is on placement of the can. I figure it should as close to the booster as possible but I'm going to have to run about 5'of
vacuum hose from the manifold to the can then 2' back to the booster. Will this have an adverse effect on what what I'm trying to accomplish? I don't want to run a noisey Vac pump if possible!
You would like the reservoir as close to the booster as possible, but 2' from the booster is not too far away. Just don't expect miracles.
