This 'might' work. The problem you may run into is space, which is very tight under the manifold. Attached is what I ended up doing. Even the clamps for the U connector wouldn't fit, but the hoses sit VERY tight there so I thought it's OK to leave them out.

I think if I didn't have the plate, I would make one. It's just a piece of aluminum, a few holes and hose connectors, pretty straight forward. The only complication there is the welded PCV pipe, but I ended up not using it after all.
