Re: doors, vacuum pumps, max bar

Don't know about the dent.  As far as the vaccuum pump goes, if you have 
a five cylinder it's the "growth" on the driver's side of the head just 
behind the power steering pump between the first and second cylinders 
from the front of the car.  I've driven an '88 and an '86 5kcstq and 1.2 
bar is normal for the max reading on the digital display for a stock 
setup.  Brett's wastegate mods and different turbo bumped that up to 1.8, 
but 1.3 seems to be the consenus for max boost reading on a stock car.
