Fail hose does nothing, and thus must be removed for maximum engine bay win.

I would rather remove the valve all together... but I'm at work and don't have the time/tools to do that, so this works

OK. Good info brotha. Thanks for the insight.

Sorry Vit, didn't mean to exclude you. Jay started the thread, so I was just commenting on that. Your participation here on the forum has been epic. I want to also thank you for the incredible amount of help you have been to the forum. I think I have made that clear in other posts I have made. Kudos to you as well for looking into this issue.

Vit, you of all people I would never "toss to the curb". I know you were joking, but I want to make it clear that I have the utmost respect for what you are doing for our members. I will not forget that. If there was any way for me to make you a vendor/sponsor, I would do so. I stand in awe of people like you, mucter, BV1, b.r.i.a.n, Soxfan143and others here on the site. You guys are almost in another dimension of knowledge than use mere mortals. I so enjoy reading all of your posts. They are so informative and helpful and they are really helping me to understand my car much better.

Couldn't have said that any better Bill. I try to help where I can, but I just don't the level of knowledge these guys do. It's amazing how much they know!

The art of working on cars these days isn't what it used to be, the truly elite also have a very technical IT type background, and these guys are shining through. Epic!

^^ what the, how the... huh?

why would this apply to the r18? Have you upgraded your injectors or something? without any tuning?

I can't believe I just saw this thread. I knew the CAAV was an issue but not to this extent. I'm tearing it out tomorrow. Thanks for the push Jay.

I just saw this thread too.

I have been plagued with cold start issues since my RDX injectors went in (roughly same time as my FP) and I just figured my FP was to blame. As Teegs and Rulo are having similar issues on RDX injectors, I might have to do this as well.

Thanks for the legwork vitviper (Jay you already got your props from bill, so none for you)
