    I have a few questions in regards to the brake booster & PCV.
    1. Can I eliminate this and plug the intake and blower ports and retain my filters?

    Question #2. I need to hack up my stock hose to get this aspirator thing to work so I can have power brakes.
    I'm reading through VMP's Gen2R install guides, Roush's Gen2 install guide, and watching a S550 GEN2r video but each one is a little different.

    My question is Where does hose 1A go?
    Where does hose 2a go?
    According to the Roush guide hose 3 goes to the throttle body.

    I think I'm good after this. Hoping to start actually installing this thing soon.
    TIA

    If you are running open breathers on both banks, simply cap the port on the bottom of the lower intake. It is 3/8" NPT if you just want to pull the fitting and put a plug in there. It's also a good place to take an average boost reading, too.

    The aspirator hooks up to break booster, before the TB, and after the TB. With all the potential vacuum locations, i'll see if we can put together a hose kit for it and include it.

    Thanks Justin. I must say the kit is top notch quality and everything else has been a breeze to install. My only point of contention is the brake booster, but your stellar customer service has more than made up for it. This is how I have the aspirator hooked up, God I hope it is right.
    BTW the hose for the degas bottle is damn near perfect for the brake booster. It matches the angle of the rear port, goes under the bypass valve, shoots up then out to edge of the blower mouth and 90*'s forward.

    Just an update & review for posterity. It seems others have had similar issues so I hope this will help someone in the future.
    After fighting a hard pedal problem and trying multiple ways to hook up the aspirator. I went back over everything related to the brakes making sure nothing was pinched or loose. When I plugged "Hose 2A" Boom everything was normal So off to NAPA I went and bought some plugs.
    Here is the way that worked for me. I reused the brake booster hose but cut it to fit. For Hose 1A I used a new straight 3/8 vacuum line. Make sure to plug the CAI.

    As for the kit and installation it was very easy except the aspirator part.
    The front cover was easy. I taped off anything that was open (Buy a roll of blue tape) and used a wood/nail sawzall blade. It took under 10 minutes to complete and less mess than the grinder.

    Plug and play harnesses are a beautiful thing and have just enough slack
    To find the radio capacitor plug on the back of the head remove the battery tray for easier access. I'm ham fistted so I need every bit of room.
    Repinning the lower plug is pretty easy, just follow the directions. Count, recount and count again. Use a small eyeglasses screwdriver to remove the knock out in C36.

    Burping the HE was easy. I filled the degas bottle and squeezed the hoses from the degas bottle to the pump and intercooler. I had my son turning the ignition on to verify coolant was moving through. I did use about an additional gallon & a half, so don't forget to get it ahead of time if you are far from a parts store like me.

    I had one problem. When I primed the fuel rails I had a leak on the passenger side 90 fitting. When I put them together on the bench I had the crossover pipe bent up, but in order to get the blower on you have to push the pipe so the bend is down which probably loosened it enough to get a slight drip.

    Other than that the kit is very easy to install. All the components are top notch. I could've bought any kit, turbo,PD etc. I would buy it again and recommend it to anyone. I can't wait to finish the tune and drive it some. VMP8-3 (6).jpg
