The hose just wraps around the PCV it doesnt go into it... Check out the sticky on EGR, PCV, ETC.. I show how it is wrapped around and works.

THe 3 prongs you see on the TB for the PCV and coolant tree don't not connect.

The coolant flows around the circle in the tree (the two end pieces). The middle one is isolated from those and has no contact with coolant. Its simply a fitting from the PCV hose to the inside of the throttlebody housing.

Oh I thought it did cause those tees all looked connected

The tee's are all on that tree, but notice the circular part. That part connects both ends of the coolant lines and are completely sepeate from the pcv vacuum line. This allos the coolant to flow over the vaccum port without entering but still keep it at temperature.

Here you go. The coolant is a closed system. It never contacts the vacuum port, just goes around it.

Nice rockers, I changed mine to the shelby ones that fit on the tips better and dont fall off like the OEM ones. Gets expensive though 19 bucks * 32 of them.... You do the math, I never was very good at it.
This set was like 380 for the whole set. And you have to use push rod guides.

I'm readyyyyy, The guy who does our heads, crashed a shopping cart at wal mart trying to make his little girl yell WEEEEEEEE .... She was ok, but the shopping cart and him, got beat up. Hes had to have surgery on one of his hands. So now he can't finish porting our big block heads :/

Thats all we are waiting on it.
