just an update, it looks like these 90's I got are the issue. I managed to get another orb fitting in no problem. its just kind of odd because the threads on both look identical..

Started the install today. Took everything apart, that took a while because I had to remove the turbo to have enough room. As I was staring at it I realized the M18 valve cover doesn't have a hole for the alignment pin at the back of the head. It does have a hole for the one at the front. Anyone else notice this ?

That's pretty ingenious. I wonder if the orifices might slowly plug? Easy enough to periodically clean, though.

Yes it can easily be maintained just unbolt from the top. But we are not expecting any build up more than a catch can, its more self maintenance has small section for heavy oil to trap and drain back . Rest of the condensation vacuumed back to turbo inlets just like stock. Great number of people want to stay stock and just have direct replacement. Also will work great with catch cans that are already on the market for stock valve cover.
