ported vacuum

ported vacuum
A slot-type port located right at the throttle plates, used for controlling various devices that must work in proportion to throttle plate opening, such as the EGR valve. When the throttle plates are closed at idle, there is virtually no vacuum signal at this slop. But as the throttle plates open during acceleration, they expose the slot to a progressively increasing amount of intake manifold vacuum
