    Hmm I'm still paranoid about trying this my ogre hands always wind up breaking clips and other fragile things that shouldn't be broken during an install lol. Directions however are pretty amazing though. If I wanted to just use the boomba check valve method what line does that go in?

    It goes where the long line goes into the charge pipe, you have to add some extra hose.

    Killer directions Michael! Thank you for taking the time to do that. It helps to show the full assembly out of the car.

    Thanks I think I'll give the boomba a shot first and if no CEL then I'll just roll with that. If I get CEL repeatedly I'll suck it up and give the Ryephile/musicsurf modified method and hopefully don't break stuff in the process lol.

    You won't be able to find a wye more than likely and if you're going to order that from McMaster Carr you might as well get all of it from them.

    So, been looking at either solution and it seems youre basically just rerouting the charge pipe line into the intake. Could you not just put a t in the line going into the intake and just run the line that hooks into the charge pipe to the t fitting then cap off the charge pipe connection? Not doubting the solutions, just wondering why you have to do all this work just to vent back into the intake again.

    In order for the system to purge correctly this way it needs to have as little distance to travel as possible and for everything to be smooth. The huge jumbled mess that is the stock EVAP lines is prohibitive to this and likely why the boost leak was added to aid in purging the system. If you want to do it the way you are talking about, its pretty much the same as putting in the check valve or capping.

    I know there are stores that carry wye pieces. That or I can order one in at a local business, most likely. Ridiculous to buy 10 or 20 of em...ha.
