    it looks like a crankcase vent. K&N among others make those in all different styles and sizes. Just do a search on "crankcase vent". Also I'm not possitive but I dont think you want to vent a blown aplication other than the pcv valve but I'm not positive, maybe someone else can chime in on that. Good luck.

    Yep, got 2 shielded ones (far right of air breather -- it's the silver thing) :) Just valve cover breathers. They run about $8 for the K&N and they do spit out oil. It covers my valve covers in my race car.

    I know this is an old thread but where did u get the breathers? It seems there are so many out there and so many different styles (push in, screw on, clamp etc) and they seem to run from 10-60 bucks!?! if I can get one for $8 american I'd be a happy boy. I bought a cheap one from autozone that doesnt fit correctly. I had to hog out the hole to get it to slip on. Thanks for the help!
