Bought the new PCV kit and disconnected the lower portion of what needs to be upgraded but I can't get those damn hoses off the top portion, they've like fused to the plastic. Any suggestions on how to remove it?

When I did the mod on mine, I was able to grab the hoses at the connector with a pair of pliers and gently twist them off. The key word there is GENTLY...

Good luck!

That didn't work too well for me. I actually took a thin flatblade screwdriver and put it under each of the hoses where they meet the plastic and gently pried each one off. Keeping my fingers crossed that the gaskets don't blow again.
