Has any one here modded their y bridge to prevent blowing the o rings out? I had a idea of cutting the flange off both and putting a lip of some sort on them and just running a silicone boost hose between the two to prevent any excessive forse put on the y bridge? Very interested to hear what you have done.
Im not sure what your Y bridge looks like but if its designed even remotely like the one on my truck i think it would be very hard to blow that gasket out and i would not go out of my way to fix a problem that likely does not exist. The Y bridge i have has a machined grove in the faces where it meets the intake and the seal is held on both sides so it cant move once torqued down to the engine. If you issue is with the oring staying in place while installing the part, i would put a couple dabs of RTV on the y bridge to retain the seals and then install it. Ill admit, i am a little confused what your asking about.
