    Welcome! Initial internet impressions center on vacuum leak but any issues when the engine is warmed up like rough idle / the shakes?

    I checked the vacuum line going into the booster, it looks good and solid connection, what else should I check ? Engine dies when it is cold with the brakes on?

    Check spark plugs. Cheap swap that may fix the problem.
