My RPM needle keeps bouncing when im coasting downhill. I'm assuming it might be a vac leak. I have a TIP and elbow charge pipe waiting to be installed as soon as the morning freeze over stops. Don't know if that'll stop the problem. If it is a vac leak where do I start; there's like a million freakin lines on it.

I assume your tach response is damped, probably 'critically damped' and therefore if you have an electronic tach I'd say it's a bad connection and your RPM is not actually changing that fast.
But, a bad connection should also happen when you're not coasting. :confused:

What does the engine sound tell you?

Don't do that cigar thing. use wd40, way faster and you won't look like a tool.

DIY brought up a good point. What does the motor do?

The car sounds like it's having a tire leak in the engine bay. Also the car doesn't seem to run at it's full potential when I drive normally.
