Was that a yes to it rubs the hood liner or a yes to the up pipe still fits good ?
yes it hits the hood liner. Up pipe just fits but will wear an impression in the hood liner. Factory vacuum block will not work with a 1" plenum spacer. It will dig into the hood itself.

That is AWESOME. Care to share the part numbers / breakdown?

I don't have the part#'s, but they are on Racetronix website. From right to left I have a #6 bulkhead fitting 90, a AN #6 120, #6 teflon line, #6 90 into a , Racetronix #6 check valve, and a #6 90 union.

I have done the same to clean up under the hood of my car as well. My setup requires a 1" plenum spacer in order for me to run a 4" air intake pipe underneath my intercooler pipe. I drilled and taped my 1" spacer for my vacuum lines and made my own pcv out of a Racetronix check valve, teflon lines and fittings. I really don't like the push lock stuff as I have never had them work properly for me without leaks. Teflon lines and fittings are bulletproof with vacuum lines, oil etc.

That is kick ass Mike.

What is the final 90* PVC fitting into the manifold. Nice work on the vacuum and PVC lines. Cheers

It provides a signal to my vacuum brakes. Turns out, after I installed the engine, a cheaper straight barbed fitting worked better.
