Bluebee, did you find the cause of the high vacuum reading? I also have a higher than normal vacuum reading (6-8 water inches) and slurping sound coming from the dipstick. I'm am trying to decide if I need to replace the CCV.
My misfire codes stopped when I replaced the broken hoses, so, I never pursued it further.
Sorry. I don't have any other details.

EDIT: Here's a shot of the dipstick guide tube hose from another thread on the X5 forum where they replaced the CCV with a $3 PCV valve.
