i did this to check it out today, see if the whole BO sound was as gay when its in your car as it is when you hear it on another peoples cars... i dont think its for me (especially since if your trying to cruis @ 60 you get a light woosh thats really annoying whenever you go from tiny bit throttle to none)

anyway, a few things occured to me, 1: the engine bay is hot, dont forget some materials will probably melt, i used 1 inch ID vinyl tubing and a pvc end cap (least ghetto i could think of, no electircal tape, i bet it would NOT do its job after heating up once or twice)

after that i noticed something else, between shifts it doesnt bleed all the pressure just a quick pop then it closes again, but if you leave it in gear it will stay open, seems like when its out of gear theres less vacuum as the engines reving down rather then being held at higher speeds by the wheels; and if this is true, then theres no way in hell its going to pen any other time and suck air in (that was pretty dumb idea in the first place)

besides that i liked it more than i thought i would, but not enough to keep it i dont think
