I tried this, and it was a pretty conclusive failure. There is little room for error to have it align with any amount of a downslope toward the block.




that resulted in this (and all of the smoke that you saw on my instagram):




and I found this after idling the car twice, for 15-20 min each time.




...and all of this oil came out of the compressor when i removed the intake pipe shown above.
