Default Another broken heater hose tee

Hi all, new to this forum, just joined last night! I have been reading everything I can find on the broken heater hose tee issue, and have decided I just want to delete the whole heated PCV valve circuit. So my question for someone that does not have the heated PCV valve (or has done this mod), is can I remove and plug the 1/4" coolant hose fitting on the front of the intake manifold. Here is the part I am talking about:
From Mustang


Also, on an unrelated issue, is there a CAI that works with a strut tower brace? Any recommendations on either? The car came with a CAI, but rubs on the valve cover and the inner fender well where it goes through the fender well.

Thanks for any info you can give!

Being located in south florida i went ahead and just ripped off the entire hose system back there that had anything to do with the heater. plugged the hole behind the water pump and on the intake manifold. car actually runs a little cooler and no more T-fitting to worry about.

Thanks for the quick reply! That's awesome! So you completely did away with your heater. I can't do that over in Eastern WA, it does get quite cold here in the winter. Any how, sorry for my ignorance, but are you saying it is safe to remove and plug the fitting I have circled? I will also do away with the tee in the heater hose and replace with a straight coupler, or just replace the whole hose with a 1 piece unit.

Thanks again!

Cant remember exactly what i did back there but if i remember correctly i just plugged the hole you circled and put rubber caps on the PCV setup near the intake manifold then replaced the broken T fitting with a barb splice. Dug up some pics of what i did...hope it helps:




the fitting you have circled:



excuse the sloppiness but i was in a rush to get the car working...its this concept basically but much cleaner. just noticed the heater inlet/outlet is plugged in the pic...would wait until someone else chimes in on how to deal with that. my memory is hazy and i dont want to tell you something that is wrong.

Oh, wow! Yes, that is exactly what I needed! Like they say, a picture is worth a 1000 words. Thank you so much!

Great help, guys! My DHG1248 was one of the few built before the PCV heater was added.
