If you put your finger over the dip stick tube, is there any feeling of pressure? I suppose i could do it myself on my unit.

FWIW, when i disassembled my intake box last weekend, I stuck my finger down into the 3" elbow into the outlet of the 4" long ribbed section. I barely found any oil residue in there. My finger wasn't wet but there was a smudge of black on my finger. Others have described a much messier condition at the top of this 4" long hose. I wonder if this is the variable we have been seeing where some guys can run 80 or 90 kmiles and okay. Other guys run 50k and bam, CBU!

My car had a pool of oil both on the lip of the first turbo and at the EGR valve. This is why this was such a must for me.

HA! I did put my finger on it :-) At idle I couldn't notice any pressure. But my finger tip isn't highly calibrated ...

Whos this for? Pretty much just gotta buy the bms can and some tubing. There you can decide how you want to route it and buy 2 fittings. Easy as can be.
