Default 95 miata egr vacuum hose routing help please

Hi,
I have a 95 miata.
I am trying to figgure out where the lower port on the egr valve goes.
I followed the schematic under the hood....it says the port goes to the boost sensor.
My 95 does not have a boost sensor.
A picture would really help too.

Thank you

We need to know more. It's not clear what you need to do.

Default 95 miata egr valve

my egr has 2 vacuum lines that go to it.
I used the schematic to hook one of the hoses up.
I can not find the second hose. Schematic says it is suppose to go to the boost sensor.....the 95 does not have a boost sensor that I can find.
I cant even find an extra hose that needs to be connected to somthing.

Anybody know where the lower egr port connects to?

Thank you

Sorry Pokerferret. Many of us drive '91's ...mine doesn't even have anything resembling that in my engine bay.

If your car runs fine, I'd just cap it off or leave it alone. The EGR is suppose to reduce emissions by putting some of the exhaust back into the intake manifold through the EGR . No vacuum hose going to some "boost sensor" to help emissions isn't a problem here in Hawaii since inspection doesn't even check for smog (like in California).

Are you sure you had a vacuum line on that lower port? I checked my car, and it has an electronic EGR, so I can't help you on that. Bring it to one of the club meetings, and I'll take a look.
