Sounds like a lot of worry over one of the more trivial mods IMHO.
As I just mentioned in another post, it's really water you need to look out for.
Happened to me once. You'll lock your engine, your oil will turn into milk, and you'll spend a lot of unnecessary cash replacing/rebuilding your engine.
After that, I took a hack-saw and turned the plastic delivery pipe into a "short RAM" I didn't feel any difference that way, but......
I was relying on my "Butt Dyno"

Hey "Butt Dyno" testing is the only way to go

I was thinking about doing something like this. My reasoning is that since the filter is so damn low I wanted to better protect it from getting splashed by raising it higher...well in this case it meant cutting off a piece of the plastic delivery pipe

Am I crazy or should I go ahead with this
