Sam, are you talking about Gary O from Mayne Island?
The pump is a smog pump off a mid 90's Taurus. It was used to pump air into the exaust to lower emissions.
I've plumbed it from my valve covers through a Moroso oil catch can and into the suction side of the pump.
Good for some free HP and no oil leaks.

I'm using a Volvo pump the same way. How many inches of vacuum are you pulling at idle, and at WOT if you have that info? Is your dipstick sealed?
