I just bought an AEM CAI for my '00 Zetec (It hasn't arrived yet). I'm considering getting the bypass valve but I was wondering how hard it is to install. Does it require actually cutting the pipe? or is there sorta a spot for it already.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

so does this mean that the bypass valve actually goes above the breather hose? won't water be sucked into the PCV?

if i put the valve above the breather hose why can't I just put it where the two pipes fit together and save myself from cutting my intake?

because it only fits in one spot. there is not enough room to mount it where the two pipes meet I know it sucks you have to cut the pipe but thats what I had to do for some peace of mind. I would'nt worry about sucking water into the PCV there is no suction there cause the motor sucks at the TB not at the PCV the bypass valve would open before water got that high anyway.

Yeah, it sucks, but you do what you gotta do. I thought I could fit it there too, but you will never be able to fit the battery tray back on with it there. Other than relocating the battery, you have to cut the pipe. If you buy the bypass new it will come with a template that will show you how much you need to cut.
