Lack of spare time to tinker with it. Money for R&D. Equipment to flow test the results. All of the above plus more?

We are probably all too lazy to think that building something that both incorporates the pcv fitting and still looks good isn't easy enough to justify it.

Does the hot side intercooler tube replace the rubber boot at the intercooler side with those metal rings around it? It was hard to tell from the pics.

That's one of the things we've "suggested" they change. Waiting to see if they do. Also Rick, the owner, tried to join the forum and it told him he didn't meet the requirements.

Since when does joining a forum have requirements? Or is it for a vendor account?

I'm wondering if it was the selected name, he linked the denial to me. I doubt he's tried again, but it would have been great for him to just him to be able to read suggestions and reply to them.
