Millenials.
In an age where most people's definition of "reasearch" is a Google search, this shouldn't be surprising. Calling a parts department and looking at parts schematics isn't quick or easy.

Might not be quick but definitely not that hard.

I agree. The mindset of a millennial picking up the phone to call someone isn't instinctual. But then again, going to any gm dealer parts site you can easily navigate around to different parts diagrams without having to pick up the phone.

You can also just get rubber hose, a plastic T fitting and a tube of gasket maker. I believe 3/8" hose would work.


ETA: and old guys like us raised them, so...

^ I second this. Just get some rubber fuel compateable hose and make it. You can heat up the plastic and pull out all the QD fittings and connect them to your hose. Probably cheaper and it's highly unlikely it will ever fail.

Ironically, ,my PCV fittings do not like 18+ psi. I get oil pushed out of some of the snap-on fittings, and have had to resort to my suggestion above.

90k miles also makes for brittle connectors, so it's bound to happen.

Don't need PCV with enough ring gap to evacuate the crank case 100 times a minute, lol.

That's good to know about the limits on those QD fittings. I imagine you could put a thicker o-ring in there to help it seal.....but at that point, just make it an AN fitting or use a hose and clamp. I don't have a single QD fitting now, but I was missing around with the idea of using one or two. I think I'll hold off and just keep the hose and clamp situation. The LS3 manifold has all the vacuum/boost reference provisions. I think 18PSI would be the max I'd run on my setup. 10PSI is a slip and slide at any MPH on summer tires (Nitto 555G2s).

I got off topic here.
