There's a check valve in the vacuum system. Either in the vacuum line coming from the intake manifold to the control panel on the dash or, if this is an automatic system, it may be inside the programmer. When you accelerate intake manifold vacuum drops off. That's why it is switching. The check valve's job is to hold the vacuum level in the system under acceleration. HTH. -Jim
