Does this need to be plugged?

I've had my short ram intake for a while. I removed the resonator and the control valve solenoid thing. while I was plugging up the nipple on the intake manifold I saw this tube that connects to the lower part of the manifold, connects to the valve cover and to the stock intake. Since I have my short ram intake the tubes useless, Should I disconnect the tube and plug it up?

Re: Does this need to be plugged?

Here's a picture of the tube Im talking about, you can see it's not connected to anything but the bottom part.

Re: Does this need to be plugged?

Im in assumption you're trying to say that the new SRI is lacking the nipple nearest the throttle body to connect that line from the valve cover to the intake.

If you do indeed lack this - then just get a small breather filter from your local autoparts store and install it onto the valve cover. You do not want to completely block off that port on the VC.



If you do have the nipple on the intake - then just get a straight hose and run it from that nipple on the SRI to the valve cover.

Oh no, the intake has the nipple, it came with the tube and it's connected to the valve cover. But the tube that used to connect to the stock intake and valve cover is just hanging there, Im asking if I need to plug that up.

Re: Does this need to be plugged?

Just connect the tube they gave you to the intake and valve cover. As far as the tube you don't have to mess with it. i trimmed mine to where it's kinda connected to the other tube. There's like a little band type thing. just trimed that so it didn't look crappy.

I just took mine out completely and put in new tubes for the coolant lines under the throttle

Re: Does this need to be plugged?

So i can just cut it and leave it alone? What Im kinda worried about is leaving it not plugged up cause a vacume leak?

Re: Does this need to be plugged?

It don't connect to the tube next to it. it's just next it so it didn't flop around...it's not going to cause a vaccum leak because it doesn't run to anything.
