Default would i see any gains from doing this?

all those damn vaccum lines going to the intake manafold if i capped the 2 ports on the intake manafold would i get any inscrease in power? im talking bout the one rubber piece on each side that goes into the intake manafold that has all the vaccum line attached to it on the passenger side the drive is already capped.. and im not talking bout the one leading to the valve covers. if i pulled the vaccum lines off it and capped it would there be any gain? also is there anything small like that i can do to free up alittle more.

The only gains would be in the restoration of lost vacuum from a leaky line or an open port. You'd be getting back to baseline for best efficiency, but no gains per se.

ah ok.. i did notice after i capped it seemed smoother and my vac guage i have went from reading ubove 20 to right at 20. so i do believe i did have a vac leak somewhere.. and i made sure that all the line that went to that spot didnt go anwhere important.. cruise.a/c vents.. still blows on the defrosters so all good on my end.
