Newbie Mr 5 Intake vacuum line question

Attached photo shows vacuum line "T" right where Mr 5 exits. I'm afraid to really crank that "T" for fear of snapping it. Tried hair dryer...how do you re-position that out of the way???

Thanks,
-Gus

I never had an issue with mine. I just moved it around so it wasn't pinched. If you are asking how to install the intake without cracking it, just unhook and open the entire tube from the vacuum connection (near the front of the intake not picutred on your photo) and move it out of the way.

Mr 5 intake install detail question

No, problem is just the downwards direction of the vacuum line "T" is exactly where the Mr 5 tubing comes out of the stock box...

Just heat up the t section and rotate it.

For me, this was the biggest pain for the mr. intake, as it wasn't as simple as heating up up and rotating it and tada you're done! I was using a professional heat gun (not hairdryer) and going to town on that damn thing and it wasn't budging.

The only way I got it to rotate was by holding the hose at each connection of the "T" (after heating) with a rubber non-slip grip, and using a pair of pliers on the plastic part of the "T" to slowly twist the 3-flanged nipple inside the connected vac lines. It worked but my T-connector definitely has some bite marks around it.

Flanged nipples. Just wanted to say that again.

Okay, so I'm not crazy. Thanks.
