Post DIY Siphon Break

Ok here it goes...tired of oil puke in the air box and I just can't see paying $35-$40 for solution so here is what I did: Went to Lowes and bought a 3/4" PVC electrical fitting ($2.98), (2) 1/2" PVC female adapters ($0.32 each), 1/2" Pipe thread to 3/8" barb nylon elbow fitting ($1.88) and 1/2" pipe to 3/8" barb brass fitting ($3.53)...Got the UNI breather for $10 at shop. Total cost $19.03 (I had TPE paste, tie wraps and hose clamps at the house so those were not included in the cost)


Assembled



Cut the breather line at the top of the elbow in existing line


Tie wraped the excess back on the plenum


Clamped my DIY Siphon break to the bottom and tie wraped it to the plenum



If oil pukes up it will collect in the res. and once the pressure decreases will drain the oil back into the crankcase instead of blowing it into the air box. Oh, I RTV'ed the front cover of the electrical PVC to seal the box up. If it ever breaks there is always a Lowes/Home Depot/Ace HArdware to repair/replace.

Just need to paint it Monster Green or put AmsOil stickers on it and sell it for $40. I know since the barrel of oil has plumetted, I am sure so has the price of AmsOil's products so probably no margin left in selling their oil, good job on doing it the redneck ingenious way! LOL!

That's what the engine cover is for!!! The $40 ones look like a toilet float with a filter on top, I figured at least PVC would hold up better!!!

...and yes! REDNECK all the way!

Todd

I'm just putting on an MSD & Muzzy's on my 2010. I haven't heard if the oil issue is still a problem for the 2010's or not.

If it is, do you think this DIY thing is a good option?

I would buy a HW "STOP" but I'm in Manitoba Canada and it would cost me just as much for shipping as the "STOP would.

A DIY solution sounds a lot better to me.

From what I've gathered at this site, your opinion is on of the most valued.
