Dude, nice job! Way to execute on this.

I literally just drilled a perfect hole (slightly smaller) and forced the PCV into the carbon pipe. Then you can silicone or epoxy it in place. I chose RTV because I wasn't 100% sure about the angle and direction I wanted it and the RTV would allow me to re-position it easier if needed.

Ooh, does anyone have a 335D fan shroud (air guide) just laying around? I've been looking for one, the benefit would be that the cowl air would be directed to the passenger side opposed to the original driver side..

Very nicely done. Would u do a diy on it? Can you list out all the parts that you used if possible? I guess there's 2 90degree 2"-2.5" elbows. One of the 2.5" to 3" Y. And maybe 2 45 degree *****? Thx

They were 1.75 to 2.5" elbows, and my recommendation is to stay closer to 2" if possible (1.75 to 2" on the 90's coming off the turbos) there is such limited space that the extra 1/2 inch isn't worth the heartake and bloody knuckles lol.. I was thinking about building a kit to sell but honestly I don't have the time and the carbon ***** are so expensive, people who want to do this will probably venture out on their own and do some custom fab lol...

Love this mod but I can't find a carbon y pipe anywhere. Anyone have a link or know of a place?
