How about you test that theory and leave your oil filler cap off or disconnect a vacuum line under the hood. Vacuum is created by the engine with low pressure differential. With N54's there is a vacuum pump since adequate vacuum cant be established at higher rpms. Do a few drive cycles and let me know what you find.
Wrong vacuum location. There's a vacuum-operated flap in the left-rear exhaust pipe just aft of the muffler. Has absolutely zero effect on engine back pressure or vacuum. Don't overheat there, buddy.

But hey, congratulations on flippin' your lid over trying to argue over the internet. Next time try getting the right subject, though, eh lad?
