Have you tried it with the remote attached? Can't remember for certain if the Y piece fouls the remote housing too.
It does on the long 3:1

Where does the 2nd breather pipe come from on the thermostat end of the rocker cover? One obviously comes from the timing cover.
Do you need to add baffles inside the rocker cover?

fuel pump hole. no baffles yet. and not planed.

 

i am sure there is a reason i have not seen any with the rocker to catch tank taken from the front but have not come across it yet.

Probably no technical reason apart from maybe the 90 degree bend? Probably mainly aesthetics and keeping pipe runs short.

 

Does the top hose get in the way of getting to no.1 plug?
