Hello

 

I'm in the process of converting an 2000 2.7L 986 to full electric car. I have mostly everything sorted, car is moving and working.

 

But to get it registered to road, I should prove that my new electric vacuum pump (Hella UP30) will provide enough vacuum for brakes.

 

Does anyone know any workshop-manuals or any other "definitive source" for vacuum pressure or vacuum specs for the 986 brake system ?

 

That would help me a lot, hopefully I would be able to prove that new system is adequate for brakes - certainly when driving, it feels just right.

 

Thanks

 

Henkka

Manifold vacuum is going to vary with throttle position, but at idle you should be seeing around 20+ inches of vacuum.  More than likely, you are going to need to install a vacuum reserve chamber along with the vacuum pump to assure sufficient vacuum under all operating conditions.

Yes, installing an vacuum reserve is definitely an option to consider. Would you happen to remember any workshop manuals or similar that would mention correct vacuum pressure ?
