A poor man's crank case breather?



Basically secure a 3.5 foot tube to the valve cover port which used to connect to your stock intake. Next loop the old tube and secure that with another hose clamp. Vola! Any oil/fumes that vent from the engine will fall to the floor and no more oil fouling your intake manifold. Total cost about 5$


Thoughts?

Cool idea man man, but an actual breather filter isn't much more money than that. Unless you really just don't like the look of it on the VC. Either way, creative idea.

It should have a filter because the air comes in/out in pulses if you put you hand over it and hold it on there you might notice it start to vacuum.

Re: A poor man's crank case breather?

the filter are the dumbest thing ever.... they get clogged with oil then dont allow your motor to remove the positive crank pressure causing you to use oil....

the hose is better than the filter...or better yet just run the hose into the intake where its supposed to be

Re: A poor man's crank case breather?

I would have to agree with DJ...Maybe theoretically dumb, but mechanicly you dont really have a choice..It is what it is...Thats a great idea, But, Like Dwend said its gonna create vacuum...It needs to be able to breathe....

Re: A poor man's crank case breather?

Well it can still breathe because the PCV is still connected to the IM and when I felt the end of the long tube at idle it was blowing out not sucking. Are you guys saying that it will suck in during WOT?

Re: A poor man's crank case breather?

Yes, that breather tube will create a suction. The PCV valve will expel the waste and the breather will bring air in from the air intake. Putting a filter on will only restrict the air flow going in. You have no risk of blow-by coming out the crankcase breather tube due to the suction. But yes, a nice little filter looks tight. Although as far as usefulness, I'ld be inclined to say not so much.
