Spulen 2.5L Brake Vacuum Pump Delete Kit
The braking system on your vehicle requires constant vacuum to assist in applying the brakes. Traditionally this vacuum is achieved by plumbing the brake booster to the engine’s intake manifold. This provides the needed vacuum to assist in applying the brakes.
However, vehicles equipped with the 2.5L engine do not receive vacuum from the intake manifold. Instead the 2.5L engine is equipped with an external vacuum pump to provide the necessary vacuum. The vacuum pump design has numerous disadvantages including decreased power output from increased parasitic engine drag, the pumps oil seals are prone to failure and cause significant oil leaks, and a replacement pump cost upwards of $350.
The Spulen Brake Vacuum Pump Delete Kit addresses all of these disadvantages. The Spulen kit eliminates the factory pump using a block off plate. The brake booster is then plumbed to the intake manifold using custom silicone hoses. As an added benefit the include silicone hose replaces the factory plastic PCV hose which is prone to cracking.
Complete installation instructions are available below and each kit includes all necessary hardware to eliminate the factory brake vacuum pump
