Default Pics for Scott & Brian...

...the "is your valve cover breather routed to vaccuum" gestapo. :gay:

Since I routed the AFM straight off the turbo with a silicone hose (b/c suspension changes required it), I had nowhere to route the breather line to. After reading the millionth post by these two about routing the breather correctly, I drilled, tapped, and JB welded for good measure a line into the back of my RX-7 AFM where it would not hit anything. Just waiting for the catch can to arrive to make the setup complete. Happy guys?

Kinda. It's the extra holding power to keep that crappy stock wastegate holding 15psi to redline. It seems that my stock GReddy wastegate + mbc can not accomplish that. Amazing that adding one helper spring does.

Nice job
I appreciate it even more after noticing you used a nice fitting and not a brass one from the hardware store.
