    Is there any way to remove the hard vac lines from the intake ? I have the crazy version with the big tree on it and I wanted to remove what I don't need instead of capping it

    Use a hot air gun or hair dryer (on high setting) to heat the area around the tubing insert. Then grab the tubing with a wet cloth that has been soaking in ice water. The sudden chill of the tubing will cause it to shrink and you can twist it out. Try not to drip water on the aluminum that you've heated so that you won't introduce unneeded stresses in the casting.
