Don't forget that Merkur breather filter! Not mentioned is the air filter, which in the pic is the only thing he'd be changing from where he is.

To bad if you actually used a pcv from autozone it wouldn't make it 12,000 miles before it exploded and caused oil to shoot out all over the place when under boost. Plus it's been my experience they don't even know what a Merkur is.
You're only as good as the last car you build.

I've been impressed, I've met a couple of employees at autozone who not only know what a Merkur is, but have either owned an SVO, or know someone who owns a Merkur. Some of the People at my local Big O Tires know the Merkur as well.

Here in Kewanee IL. the guys at Autozone none of them know what a Merkur is, at O'reilly there is an old employee who knows exactly what a Merkur is and to my sorprise there is a young guy who actually not only knows what a Merkur is but he knows a lot about the car.
