Default I need a nice solution for my dual catch can hoses

So in my attempt to make everything extremely nice in my engine bay i decided i want my hoses for the crankcase ventilation as nice as possible.

I tought about some things like heating up a universal hose and bend it, but that didnt work because it doesnt stay in shape, 2nde solution was 3d printed hose guides, While it looked good on the table i didnt like it when it was on the car itself. Other solution is maybe bending some steel tubes. But much more work involved and dont know if that would be nice

Does anybody else have a nice solution for me?

In a few weeks everything will be ready to install my EFR TwinScroll 6758.

Pretty sure you will need bigger breather lines my friend. I have a single -10 an fitting going out the exhaust side of the valve cover to a vented catch can. Then on the 6758TS motor i have is getting a similar setup but with the radium AOS

Maybe need bigger lines yes but that would still give me the same problems id like to see them tidy up. Like all in perfect straight line with 90degree angles where needed

Well, I'v found small diameter silicone 90's for pretty cheap $$ on eBay, anywhere from 3/8's in. I.D. on up. That coupled with simple brass unions, (or plastic), would give you a pretty seamless, neat routing, and would also be functional.

Aluminum fuel line is inexpensive, comes in different sizes and colors, and is much easier to bend. Plus you could always paint or anodized them the color you want.

Did you measure the clearances before install or just roll the dice and send it?
