COBB intake and breather hose

My breather is is really kinked with the Cobb intake. Anyone have this issue?

I just installed my big sf intake today and while the hose was flexing quite a bit and felt like it could break, it didn't kink on me. I can post a pic of mine if you want.

Thanks for those. Your hose has a nice curve to it unlike mine. Will have to play with intake some more to try and get rid of the kink.

I feel like since it's already kinked it may be hard to get it to sit without one. If thats the case I would assume they are cheap. Also in case you haven't already don't forget to use one of Cobb's big SF tunes. My car was throwing codes and running like shit, thought it was pcv but then remembered it needs a specific tune.

This breather hose was a replacement and doesn't seem as flexible as the original one. I am running a k04 big sf tune. Stratified did send me a k04 stock intake tune as I'm going to pull the Cobb intake to take care of issue or get different intake. Cobb looks like only one to not retain stock return location.
