Was needing some insight on how or easiest way to remove? I need to get to the front 2 intake bolts and can't get the tube to budge. Thanks.
Judging by the looks of the crossover cap, I'd say it's not going back on. For those of you with 4Vs that are constantly filling up your coolant give this a serious look:Hopefully it goes back on easier than it came off.
I work with that guy. He's actually using my design. We made a deal where he gets to sell them on a couple forums and I get to sell them on the others. lol.Judging by the looks of the crossover cap, I'd say it's not going back on.

Great quality too btw.
I prefer the clean look of the original ford plug. The "secret" is to use some anti-seize on the plug threads so that it does not get stuck.
Also, if you want to make it a little easier to remove the bypass tube next time, clean up the bores in the block so that all the dirt is gone and you can see bare aluminum. Then lubricate all three of the o-rings with a small coat of oil. That bypass tube separates into two parts with an o-ring sealing them together in the middle.
You can get brand new o-rings from NAPA, just give them the bypass tube and they will match some up for you.
