Exclamation Intake vacuum seal Question

I just put my catch can on.
The outlet line, or rather the intake manifold vacuum fitting seems cheap, and I am worried its not making a perfect fit now with the hose for the can now attached. Is this a non-issue or is the intake going to suck it down and make the seal, or should i expect a CEL?

(I havent started it yet)

Ya, but the LLT fitting looks a little more robust, plus its sitting on metal, not composite.
(maybe im just mildly freaking)
The hose that came with the kit was nice and thick (giggity), so i had to push the cover down hard, leaving an indent in the insulation that lines the cover. so with everything so snug in there, there is pressure on the fitting further pushing it down, most likely making this a non-issue.

if your hose is that thick(giggity) then there shouldnt be an issue ...i have the composite fittings and a thick hose(giggity) and have zero issues
