also, what did you use to tie down or prop up your secondary air intake(SAI) hose?
No, it doesn not restrict air flow. I used a zip tie to secure the SAI tube.

Why does the cobalt not come with PCV filter to begin with? My old car did.

Actually if I'm reading this correctly (and I am fairly clueless when it comes to cars) This doesn't recirculate the oil back into the system, this mixes the oil with the air and it burns with your gas. So adding this wouldn't change anything when it comes to losing oil or whatnot, just keeps your engine cleaner...
