I really don't know much about this, but I have heard of people doing it before and not having problems. It's my understanding that the ECM receives feedback from the carb to properly advance the distributor, so if the vacuum is doing the advancing and the carb is still getting information from the ECM, if I understand this correctly everything should still work fine. Then again in young and I could just be blowin' smoke :poke:
