Technical What do you guys want for the new VTT Valve covers, port wise?

So most people know we redesigned the valve covers to make room for all the poorly designed single kits on the market that basically shove the compressor against the valve cover, and while we are here in a redesign, we might as well make some changes for the better. So we are asking what do you guys want? Currently, it is 2 -10 ORB ports in the back, and one upfront passenger side (LHD). For the single turbo guys that front port may be again very close to the compressor housing. So we are going to either move it to the driver side or add an extra port to give people more choices when plumbing them PCV set up. We will include an extra -10 ORB if we do 4 ports. What do you guys want to see?

1. Leave it as it was 3 ports, 2 in back one passenger front
2. Keep it 3 ports but move it to the driver side
3. Add an extra port to open up more routing options for PCV?

Personally, I think leaving it as a 3 port is more than enough - there's already an "extra" port on the actual cylinder head on the front driver's side that can be used for CCV purposes and you guys offer an extra port more than any alternative options as it is. If it's still a clearance issue on the top passenger side for top mount users, I think @doublespaces idea of placing it on one of the sides of the VC (probably driver's so it remains at a high point) may be the best overall solution.

An internal baffle would be something, even if it only did part of the lifting

What is needed, is an external vacuum, lower cost ATI balancer and a valve cover with a baffled -10 or -12 fitting.
