When I said vaccum leak I was referring more to those stupid little black hoses that run everywhere to those funny little vacuum switches on the thermostat housing and intake manifold, amongst other places. There is quite a few of them - the little hoses go everywhere, but only a few of them can actually affect the engine's running characteristics if one is disconnected or is connected to the wrong place:crazy1:
It could also be an EGR valve, looks like a little flying saucer and is usually attached to the intake manifold somewhere and has one of those stupid black hoses going to it.
Best bet I reckon is to take it to Dyno Tune or something where the mechanics are reputable and experienced on all makes and models, and might have half a clue.
There are only 2 states to be in:
Western Australia, and pissed.
