the one i got didnt fit over it. the rubber surround for mounting was too stiff/thick to be worked over the pvc like i wanted it to do.

if ya want, just tap some screws thru the pvc into the rubber end of the filter, then you can just remove the screws for cleaning or replacing the filter.

If you read the original how-to on the first page, that wouldn't even have been a problem, b/c you'd have known it wouldn't work.

The HDCAI is cheap, that's just a visually appealing alternative. I saw that post a few days ago.

the large vaccum line is part of the pcv system. make sure that it is hooked up. i didnt hook it back up and i am having to replace the whole pcv system. make sure it is hooked up!!!!!!!!
