Cam box vent/breather removed.

Well... a small but pleasing modification. The corroded and ugly breather pipe that vents vapour into the inlet tract is no more. I blanked the entry aperture and fitted a neat little K&N filter onto the cam cover. The corresponding pipe that routed hot coolant next to the vent pipe is replaced with a neat and unobtrusive neoprene pipe.


Before.


After.



The Pipe and Filter.



The state of the bay now.

Re: Cam box vent/breather removed.

If one were to install an oil catch can, is that the port it would be fed from, or would it run off the pcv valve one?

Re: Cam box vent/breather removed.

Thanks for the kind comments all, I used a small red blanking plug that was on a pump of some kind when delivered, we keep them in the workshop rather than binning them after fitting. I think that the oil catch can would go there, I tend to use an empty beer can on my motorcycles, cable tied to the frame. However I don't think that is a look suitable for the Prelude!

You can get a rubber cap at Pepboys - that's what I use at least.

Typically everyone installs their catch cans on the PCV valve to prevent the oil getting into the intake manifold. Not much oil comes out of the breather that goes to the actual intake to make it worth installing a can there.

Re: Cam box vent/breather removed.

That is one work of beauty. Im actually looking to do the same thing. What size filter is that? im thinking of going to autozone or some auto stores to buy it but im getting a feeling not many of them would know what im talking about when i say the breather port that feeds from the cam cover to the air intake. Also, that metal coolant pipe. Did you remove that and use a simple rubber hose? Where did you get it and what size is it? Thanks for the post, i really appreciate it. Hope to hear from you soon since im kinda late to this thread.

Re: Cam box vent/breather removed.

They sell them in the "ricer" section or intake filter section at Pep Boys etc- just a standard breather filter/ crankcase filter I think the inner diameter is .5" - just measure to check but really it's hard to get it wrong

mine is just on the valve cover nipple with a hose clamp.

Re: Cam box vent/breather removed.

Haha ricer section. Im just looking to deliver cleaner air into the engine and increase efficiency is all. I figured it would be 1/2 but it being dark out, i cant really go out and measure. And as for the coolant hose gauge size? Really appreciate the help, thanks.

Re: Cam box vent/breather removed.

I don't remember what size hose it was, i just used standard hose from pep boys.

Just pop it off when you go to the local autoparts store and bring it in with you to match it up.
