Default Opti vent check valve face which way?

The picture is correct,the "blue" half always points toward the intake. Yes,it matters.

maybe the new replacement vent harness are now silver/blue. the blue goes towards intake as has been posted

I do know that if reversed your opti will fill up with crud from condensation quickly. Mr Goodwrench reversed mine during service back when the car was in warrenty...killed 5 optis within 500-1000 miles before "I" found the cause. All were under warrenty but what a PIA at the time.
