Feeler - Metal vacuum and pressure chamber in one

Putting out a feeler to see if it's worth my time, effort, and money.

In my diassembly of my FD I broke one of my vac/press chambers. Seeing how they are ABS plastic, in a very hot engine bay, and the propensity for nipples to break off on these cars from heat cycling and the tight connections on vac lines, as well as the check valves that break. I wondered, why don't we have a metal, 2 chambered box to replace these, have a quality check valve built in, metal barbed nipples, and can be mounted away from the block (under the ABS possibly?)

If there is enough interest, I will begin to build. This is really only for sequential setups but I think it could clear up some vacuum issues and the massive vac hoses.

He only made a few but might give you some ideas, he is pretty active on the forums and FaceBook, might pay to send him a message:

Interesting, I'll def keep it as an idea. I don't want to force removal of anything like he did with the one sensor. I also want to keep costs down as well. Thanks!

Maybe a 3rd chamber for oil catch?
