"the mailbox", that's funny! All this time I've been putting my bread in there...

Couldn't you braze on the aftermarket intake tube or drill and attach nipples for the breather tubes? If you do it in the back it would be less visible.

Brian (RarlyL8) has a setup you might be interested in. Send him a pm for pics or maybe he'll post here.

The one item I recommend you keep an eye on is the diameter of the breather line from the oil tank. Try to keep the same diameter so that the pressure is relieved from the crankcase...

I did the Fabspeed unit. Looks great, opens/cleans the bay up. They give you breather filters for the oil tank hose.

I too did the fabspeed upgrade. works perfect. I bought an oil catch can from Summit Racing (revealing my 1/4 mile roots) and mounted it in the engine compartment to catch any overflow.

I have all the part #'s if you need them, but they are easy to find.

I am taking her in to get an oil change tomorrow (going to RA this weekend ) and i'll try and take a pic.

Jayhawk's is smilar to mine.

One thing I noticed about JH's though, was that the vent line off the WUR is not vconnected to the air cleaner any more. I used a NPT threaded barb to the bottom of my BMC air filter and ran the vent tube to there. If there is a flood of gas, maybe it will go into the engine vs onto the engine.

The blue hose to the IC is just bent out of the way while I'm working on the car. It's not connected to the catch can.

What is the brand/model of catch can you have there Rocket?

I just did a rebuilt on my 930 and I have my oil tank vent going to the small fabspeed filter. It just vents to the atmosphere. I don't get any oil build up. The question is, will it start to drip oil? It just puts smoke out of it.

Robert:

My car is mostly used on the track. I have to keep the oil level in the middle of the marks, otherwise as it gets hot, I get some overflow into my little catch can. If it used mostly on the street, you filter might leak some. When it does, that is a mess.

Give me a call on the other thing. 816-678-8370

Those of you with the vented catch cans, and or, small line filters in the engine bay: you don't mind having oily vapors floating around back there? Can you smell the vapors when you have the cabin heater on (seems like they would get drawn into the heating system via the engine fan)?

heater??? track cars dont need no stinking heater. Might be a good point for a street car, though.

Thanks for all the replies-you've been helpful. In the interest of cost savings, I'm going to install a 5" diameter by 4" tall K&N clamp on filter on the intake that doesn't have any ports. Then for the 2 breather hoses I'm going to try a couple small K&N's that are about 3" by 2" tall with a 1/2" nipple. I don't track the car so I don't think a catch can is necessary but we'll see. I just have to figure out how to mount the 2 filters/hoses so they don't just dangle loose in the engine compartment. Again, any comments are appreciated if I'm screwing up on something.

I agree... I tried the simple ventilation filter and was picking up the smell in the cabin. So, I went straight to the top of the air filter cap... Just like Brian [Rarly].

Here is a pic with the hose removed.... You get the gist...

I've never smelt anything in the track or street.

One thing about venting it back into the engine is that oil vapors promote detonation. Sure it's a minute amount, but no point in helping it.

I got mine from Summit Racing. The brand name escapes me (begins with a "M" I think) and was about $60-70?. It has a -12 make fitting that the line slips right on. A 1/2" fitting will be way too small.

There is a 1" hole origonally for the air pump hoses a few inches from the back of each side of the engine tin.

I used part of the long air pump hose that origonally crossed over the top of the engine just behind the fan housing and ran it down through that hole on the passenger side. you can put a rubber grommet in the hole first to seal around the hose keeping it snug, and it looks better.

That way the crankcase fumes come out under the engine sheet metal next to the passenger side rocker cover and none of it is an issue to the motor anymore and none gets sucked into the engine fan to come out the heater ducts in the wintertime.
