For those Exige/Elise with QUAIFE Transmission

Folks, im in the process of tidying up the engine bay and came across this blue hose and not hook up to anything. Im thinking its a vent line but not sure. What is this for? Thanks.

Yes you, Peewee.

You are correct, it is the vent line.

We install a small catch can to that vent and mount to rollbar...

seems to be some interesting plumbing in there---- I can see the desire to clean up a bit!

Speaking of clean-up, maybe it's just the pic, but that motor mount looks not right where the bolt goes through.... no?
