Correlation between vacuum sync and vibration!

Recently balanced the vacuum between the two throttle bodies and since then have noticed a noticeable reduction in vibration, especially in the 5-6K range. It was not off much so the correction required was small but it still had a very noticeable effect on vibration. Anyone else notice this? Took less than 2 minutes to do - if you don't include the time required for gas tank removal and re-installation. Used this tool.

The tool is even unnecessary. I successfully used a length of thin flexible tubing that I filled with water and hung from a ladder to create a manometer. The hardest part was filling the tube with water and getting all of the bubbles out...

I can't say I noticed anything different after I balanced the throttle bodies, but I will try to notice next time.
