    Have a 2.4 and all my vacuum hoses under the hood are dry rotted. Can someone tell me the most used sizes under the hood? I assume they're metric size. OR, if anyone knows of a master vacuum replacement kit.

    I used these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BQ0SDCU?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details&th=1

    Almost all of the Amazon Review pictures are from people using them on 4runners/tacomas.

    Replaced all vacuum hoses and they've worked great. From my experience the silicon lines are not good for the PCV hose though.
    I'm not sure if they're safe for coolant hoses, but I may try it out since I need to replace my IACV coolant lines.

    I replaced 60% of my hoses
    I went to multiple family owned hardware stores…..like Ace hardware
    Surprisingly, I found 4 different sizes I needed
    But
    They were in red
    I’m not ‘that guy’ as far as color under the hood = HP
    And RA sent my red plug wires…
    But I went with it bc most expensive was $2.79 per ft

    You'll be missing out on the massive horsepower gains from blue/red hoses :D

    evil_vacuum.jpg evil_vacuum2.jpgSeems to be a pretty good kit. Mixed reviews out there if they will hold up on the EVAP system. Time will tell. They're 100% better than what was there. Every hose on my evap system was cracked / damaged / split.
