Anyone seen or used this? Opinions on the setup?

How about the routing and the fact that it is only using 1 filter?

It's pretty cool looking but it's plastic and should be easy to duplicate. I may make one this winter, I like the look.
And I know, they are selling a chrome one, but they state they sell the plastic one too.

How about the routing and the fact that it is only using 1 filter?

looks like a very solid setup. it is actually very good (on paper), since it completely replaces stock setup without having to cap off any vacuum hoses, AND it reroutes the PCV vapors into the intake, keeping the earth greener. the only complaint from me is, they say it has 3 clear plastic hoses, but i only see two. :snorkel:

Has anyone checked this out today and seen the "chrome" version? It's just plumbing. The pvc one looks way better.

If you don't feel like doing this yourself, this would be nice, I think, but it's gonna be way easy to make one of these.

mine works mint, i chose to only route the carb breather into the intake, but adding the pcv wouldnt be an issue.

Is that just a 1.125" water trap for a sink, painted purple?

:laugh:


I think they lost all credibility the moment they said this statement: "We have came up with a exact formula to select a single jet size that will work perfect for you." and "Info needed...altitude, average temp, and any flow mods done (exhaust, bigbore, headwork, ect...) and we will pick out your jet using the formula! "

it's 1.5" iirc, whatever fit the carb inlet corectly. its just a pvc 90, that i tapped and put a barb fitting on. i do body work so i painted it a nissan 350z mistic color, hard to tell in the pics. from most of what i've seen on here its about the best possible solution and costs the least.

That looks really nice--kudos!
Would you want to write a how-to, or at least show pics of the parts and connections?

yeah i made mine for under 20 at lowes... besides you dont need to hook your ecg or pcv in, that does nothing for you, and that things too long...it makes a difference. i had to cut mine down three times before it performed correctly. what a rip off :ucrazy:
