    Default Valve cover breather hoses...

    Venting back into the air cleaner...is this needed for vaccume or can I get rid of these and go with a standard breather filter on valve cover?

    Venting into the air cleaner helps to scavenge the oil vapors. If you just use breathers (and no hoses) you get the oil vapor distributed all over your motor area.... or you can use the breathers that have hose ends on them and scavenge the vapor out thru the exhaust system... thats where most people go with them.
