Vacuum distribution block?

Has anyone used a large vacuum distribution block as a way to clean up the mass amount of hoses on the intake? Is this possible? I want to clean up my engine bay but don’t want to loose any functionality. I’m having no luck finding info on this type of solution and can seem to find any aftermarket intake manifolds that have the vacuum bungs on the bottom.

You know, if one counts the number of ports in the intake tract, and then the number of ends of all the tubing, one might realize that most of the plumbing is that vacuum being passed around among the several users in necessary sequences.

It is my experience that if one invests in longer new hoses and some zip ties, one can organize the engine plumbing pretty neatly.

Just a thought....

So basically what your saying is that buy using a distribution block I would be eliminating the sequencing the system uses? Just making sure that was a correct first person translation 😂. So is there really no way to run this system other than to have a ridiculous amount of hoses in the intake?

I want no functionality loss.
I want to remove parts.

I’m not wanting to remove parts, just wondering what would happen if u ran a large manifold vacuum to a ditribution block on the firewall and then had all the hoses looking for manifold vacuum running to that. Or, would it be possible to relocate all vacuum ports to the backside of the intake. Not trying to offend fellas. This is the first vehicle I have had that is built this way.

Even with a 'central' vacuum manifold, wouldn't you still have a bunch of hoses running to the same components? Crazylair's setup looks sweet but that's not exactly stock.

Yes you would have hoses running to the components. My goal was to run one manifold vacuum to a block on the firewall, then route vacuum to the components from there. It would look much cleaner if it would work but I’m not sure it will.
