Mike-

I actually bought this so called "conversion kit" for a 98+ blower to fit on a 97 car. I have yet to install it, but the whole kit consist of just hard vaccum line and a couple different rubber inlets to plug into. I am assuming all it does is take the two or three extra vaccum lines the 97's have and adapts them to the 98 style. Here is the part number I bought, but like I said I have yet to put on my 98+ blower. Once I do I will let you know how it goes...

GM Part Number: 24508742

yes it does work. I have a 2001 Blower on my 97. If anyone needs to see my car, just let me know. I'll be more than happy to show it.

If some one can just show me where the lines go I can go buy some hard vacuum line and do it.

Thanks

You don't have to buy a "kit" do to put a 98+ blower on a 97. I had a Stage 4 Blower 98+ on my 97.

All you do it "T" the line that would be into the side of the SC into the FP Regulator and run that line around the LIM.

If you need more details LMK, I may even have a JPG of the vacuum routing.

TB to top of SC
line by firewall to top of SC
MAP to LIM -"T"- LIM to FPR -"T"- to SC
Brake booster is the same

TTT, I am going to autozone tomorrow to get the stuff I need. I guess I need a few feet of 1/8" hard vacuum line and a few T connectors? If anyone has the pics that would be great.

Let me see if I can take a picture of that "kit" thing I bought and that way it can give you a better idea of what it looks like. I am going to be installing my blower this coming week and will have to figure out how to hook it up as well. I will swing by the garage tonight and see if I can take a shot of it for you ok.

2 T's, one for the manifold under the snout, and one T on the Fuel Pressure Risor

it goes...boost bypass, to fuel pressure risor(T goes here), then goes to the manifold under the snout(T goes here), then all the way to the maf sensor(the fitting on the sensor is a 90, and on the under side of it). there you have it.

Here are some pics of that kit thing I got, could have gotten away with just using regular vaccuum line and t's...

how much was it?, and can you type out the number to order, and how much. Id much rather have the good gm stuff, compared to the stuff that comes with the PRJ kit anyways. after cruising around after install, I found the hose to be soft, and you know those originals dont never get soft like that. Ive found 2 cracks in my tubing already, and have them patched (spliced).

TIA

Here is the GM Part Number: 24508742 (Harness)
I ordered it from www.gmpartsdirect.com and I think it was something like $12.60 + shipping.

Let me know if you need anything else.
