I'm a lazy ******* and saw something on the brake port. This is my JDM engine and ports are reversed. Can I switch sides by simply swapping the open port with the plug.

it sort of looks that way, try it on your old engine? Worst case you run a longer hose. Or just swap the intake manifold over which seems to be the most common way of dealing with it.

i think a few people have tried to swap these without luck, there's also the option to use a longer brake vacuum hose

I'd avoid the longer hose unless it's reinforced (like fuel injection hose); would hate to have reduced brake power due to a collapsed vacuum line.

Try the plug swap, otherwise swap intakes and don't be lazy. :haha:

I had to keep my manifold. The JDM engines manifold underside had an egr system while mine has a block off plate.
