I would put the air inlet parallel with the barrel and with the inlet bottom tangental to the bottom of the vortex hole.

Anouthe Question if you dont mind. Must the Barrel and air in be flush with the inside of the Cap as shown in 1.? Or Can it be either?

To me it makes more scence if it is flush.

Please correct me if im wrong, but if the inlet was at the bottom of the vortex, then it would not create a vortex. Itthe air would run up into the BB Holder?

Just heat the hose with hot water, and push it over the nozzle, and fasten with pipeclamp, or wire(It works better). Its simple, yet effective
