I broke the vacuum nipple that goes from solenoid to the bypass valve. Source vacuum is still hooked up was wondering if its ok to drive like that till I get a new one didn't really notice a difference when I drove it. Thank you.
You should be fine, as long as you leave the bottom port of the valve open. Most people eliminate the solenoid when upgrading their setups, since it's just for traction control/reverse/etc. babysitting conditions when beating on it more than normal. You can actually disable it in-place, by removing it from any vacuum routing, leaving the solenoid connected to the harness. Same goes for the EGR and some other items that aren't of much use.
