I installed mine in the front of the car near the heater core. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/03/10/6a9adu9e.jpg

How hard was it to route the vacuum line - can you do it easily with everything together?

The old plastic line plugs into a vacuum tee behind the the hvac controls. It is relatively easy to find it, pull it off, then replace with a short run of hose to the hole where the Evaporator lines exit. I did mine with the seats out.

The vacuum hose size is the same as the hose that connects to the stock heater valve.

Dig your liscence plate Matt! Just like the one I was gonna do GIGAWHAT?
But I'm sticking with SUMMROFF. I was gonna switch SUMMROFF to Blue (fiero) and put GIGAWHAT? On Boo, but with the Delorean rear plate cover I can't fit a question mark sticker after the T in GIGAWHAT. I may do it anyway.

Matt, that's a neat idea and well done! At least when this one fails you won't have coolant all over the engine compartment. ;) What is the AutoZone part number?

It's an Everco 74612. Dave Swingle doesn't like it, because he said if it fails, it could suck coolant into your vacuum lines and make you think that you have a blown head gasket. I am willing to accept that risk.
