Default question about my 98 z28

just picked it up. i have been expecting it.

i noticed the driver side valve cover has a rubber piece that goes into it. im assuming it is suppose to run to the back of the motor somewhere.. well it has somehow ripped and it is no longer making its way that way. oil has started making its way out slowly.

anyone know what this piece is called? thanks in advance.

Breather hose but can't remember what it's called. It's the hose people mount catch cans to so the oil doesn't go into the intake.

You can make a catch can and connect the 2 again. That's what I did. Should be some write ups here on how to do it. Just use the search. I wouldn't just plug it and go. There's a reason it's there.

I would just go ahead and put an ls3 in it so you'd be in the right section.
