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.

o ok cool. so its better that its not connected? haha should i plug the end that leads to back of intake, and put a breather on the valve cover end?

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.

Lol o yes theres plenty. A ls7 sounds nice. I think that would rid all my problems.

Wow I price checked the pcv pipe from passenger head to the pcv valve and its 140bucks.-_-
