    Hi All,

    I bought one of those fancy doo-dads from IE that replace the stock valve cover breather pipe, but how the hell do I fit it? The bit I bought says it fits the 06A engines (of which mine is one), and I can't see an easy way of taking the original bit out...

    This is what it should look like:

    Sent it off today for some powder coating, along with the charge pipe, so I'll have to have a harder look once I get it back. I don't want to have to remove that plate on the underside of the valve cover to get this thing on, what a mission!

    Hi,

    Thanks Andrew, forgot to mention my adapter doesn't have thread on the block side, it looks like it's just supposed to slide right into the existing opening.
