    Aftermarket intakes and the valve cover vent hose

    Is there any concern over the valve cover vent when using a cold air or ram air intake?

    If I have concerns, would it be prudent to do something like this FACTORY AIR FILTER HOUSING UPGRADE KIT instead of an intake which leaves the valve cover vent open to unfiltered air?

    When I bought the BMC high flow intake from madness they included this little k&n filter to put on the breather. You could probably find one in a small engine shop. I've run it for about 500 miles with no problems.

    ganjgurru is correct, although BMC is one the few Intake Systems that comes with said filter.

    Any other intake system comes with a an outlet that allows you to connect the "valve cover vent". Hope that helps bud

    Any idea what is the part-number or size requirement for that k&n filter to put on the breather?
