Broken check valve from intake

Hey guys just wanted to share my story so it doesn't happen to you. I have a VWR intake that came with that car. The other week my car was idling funny and it turned out to be a broken check valve on the brake booster line because my intake was constantly hitting it without my knowledge. As of right now the part is on back order for 2 weeks nationwide! I'll upload a picture as soon as I get on a computer.

I took this picture when I first got the car and you can see the check valve touching the intake.

The APR intake used with the stage 3 kit does the same thing. HS Tuning trimmed down the line on mine so it has some space. Definitely worth the peace of mind!
