First I vented both into the intake trac then decided that it needed to be plugged. I cut a bit of hose and stuck a big bolt in it and then used a band clamp on it. It's been ok since the rebuild so I guess it's working.

Ghetto fix but it works.

I can't plug it I have to remove it because it hits the cross over pipe slightly. Any suggestions?

It may be too late now, but you probably coulda pulled the hose barb out and then tapped it for an AN_ sized plug.

Can you source an STi crossover tube that will clear the vent?

Pull the tube out and press in an aluminum plug with a lip.

We had one machined one out. The lip is there just incase that the press fit is too small and it does not fall in. Any local machine shop should be able to cut you one in a few minutes. Just show them the vent tube that you pulled out of the block.

We should find someone who could make these on a regular basis, I am sure there would be some sales.
