Default Ebay blue blow off plate

Ive been reading all over the forum about these plates and watching videos online. I want it to be as loud as possible. I was wondering if the ebay nock off is the same as the mopar? also I found this vacuum diagram, do I need to change the vacuum lines around like in this pic first is stock right pic is with bop

It is an exact machined duplicate of the MOPAR OEM BOV.

I wish it was available in RED for more HP!

Unless you have a big turbo kit, the mopar style rice plate is just fine. You do not need to change any of your vac lines.

I like the way mine sounds. I have the autostick and when I get on it and it shifts at 6k it really make a loud hiss. I'm sure with a stick it would sound much better.

I got the block off plate on today everything went ok until i got to the hard bolt. came off ok once I figured out the best way to get my hand in the area. But putting that bolt on there took about a hour with a regualer 10mm wrench. I had to put a strap around the hard line that lies right on the hard to get to bolt. I would just move the line slightly to get the wrench on to do a 1/4 turn what seemed like 50 times. With quick wrenches it would have taken no time. but It sounds great nice and loud.

I was able to use a socket and extention I guess I got lucky. I love the sound myself. Did you drive it in full autostick yet? When it shifts it is real loud.
