vacuum canister info needed!

I am wanting to mod my vaccum canisters by putting a metal barbed fitting on top and bottom but want to make sure this is just a canister with a simple nipple on it, not some crazy design on the inside with passages ect.

Deleted them on my roomate's car and I haven't noticed any side effects, good or bad, one of the nipples broke so we bypassed it.
I don't see how modding it would hurt...could be wrong but I say try it out. A new one is $30 on ecs anyway... no biggie if you f it up

The nipple cracks and it looks totally fine but is actually leaking at the base. Tired of worrying about it. Same reason I did the intake nipple this way.

It's really easy to check the integrity of the cannisters using a mighty vac and they aren't that expensive to replace..... but whatever floats your boat man.

Rather know they are good and just leave them. Modded them in 15 mins.
