It sounds like an important system. What headaches can come about from leaving the PCV? If the PCV cannot relieve that extra pressure, where does it all go?

I wanted to keep mine intact but didn't want to keep introducing oil into my clean intake. So I used this https://lmr.com/item/OSC-3018DB/jl-mustang-oil-separator-driver-side-black-99-04
The kit comes with everything you need. But if you're like me and want it to look clean I used this pcv valve https://www.summitracing.com/parts/rdm-20-0561
And ran AN line you can get from any of the major players. Luckily for me I live right outside of the town speedway resides.

That radium piece is an o-ring threaded ... did you just jam it into the PCV valve cover grommet? (I'm surprised that would seal.....)

Yes sir. the jtl intake kit itself just uses a plastic npt fitting. And the oem pcv valve is just a nipple into the rubber bushing. I just removed the oring from the pcv fitting and threaded it into the rubber bushing.

Nifty - I was reading some posts that suggested -10AN fittings can just be threaded into the rubber valve cover grommets so I guess the trick does work nicely.

Although after more reading (I need to replace/delete the lower intake manifold line in my car since it's leaking) there were several posts that suggested if you plug the lower intake manifold condensation can build up at the bottom of the manifold and hydrolock your engine (if enough builds up). Can condensation build up in the manifold, or since it's under vacuum would it get sucked out?

I don't see how it would build up condensation in that area. I didn't see any evidence of it when I had my intake off last time.

FWIW, I had an o-ring go bad on the intercooler manifold and it proceeded to dump the entire contents of the reservoir into the lower intake. The engine sure wasn't happy, but it didn't hydrolock.

It's been a while. Been working on the car at a slow pace recently. Life has slightly been getting in my way and I've ran into a couple of installation issues so I'm taking my time now, no more trying to rush. Also wanted to ask, does anybody know of a write-up or where I could find some info about installing an air ride set up with the IRS. I've heard of it being done before but I can never find any info of it. I would like to put bags on my car but I don't want to put a solid axle in a Cobra, doesn't feel right.

I don't think you're going to find any write ups. I've only seen a couple Cobras on bags. It really shouldn't be any different than a normal bag set up. Especially since Ridetech makes them for the IRS now.

Oh no kidding? I didn't know there was a kit for Cobra's now. That's awesome. I've been looking at Air Lift Performance kits and they all say excludes IRS. Good looking out.

It has been quite a while since I've done anything with the car but I made a little progress today. Dropped the Whipple in there, started hooking up a few vacuum lines. I started late so I wasn't able to get everything hooked up on the Whipple but it feels good to finally make some progress. Not having this car on the road has sucked. It's been down for nearly 3 months. I want to drive it so bad.

Nice to see it's progressing. Looks good with the Whipple nestled under the hood. What's next on your list?
Next up I'll probably finish up the last bits of the fuel system. I still need to mount the regulator and run lines from the regulator to the rails. After that I think I'll be pulling the transmission to do the clutch, 26 spline input shaft and the head cooling mod.
