I guess I'll know for sure this Saturday.

To clarify something though, the fuel line that I used instead of a vacuum line was larger, thicker, and more firm (get your mind out of the gutter ). However, I am not sure how this would have collapsed if it was loose on the regulator and actually not getting enough vacuum.
The smoke/leak test proved this. The hose was blowing smoke out during testing because the ID of the new hose was too big.

Also, I do not think it anything more serious, because the car is actually fast as He## when I stomp on the throttle. I just blows smoke. Gas mileage is actually better than when I bought the car too after all the other work that I did.
