    a screw and zip tie really do work great for plugging vacuum lines. Alternatively, you could get the rubber caps and just remove the whole line at the source/junction and cap it there. If you're no longer using that vaccuum line, it doesn't need to hang out in there, it's just less work to leave it in.

    Vacuum caps were the route I chose.

    I will give a bit of advice though:
    If possible find caps that are made of a thicker rubber or silicone material.

    The high levels of heat in that area make standard vacuum caps degrade relatively quickly.
    Once a cap degrades it causes a leak.
    Or it can alternately simply fall completely off if it is worn enough.
    This will mean that you have theoretically infinite boost and may or may not hit fuel cut.
    Likely the latter as you are using an MBC and not an EBC.
