either run the tube with the nipple by itself to the intake, or run the tube through a catch can then back to the intake. Either way get rid of the breather filter

Hook it back to the intake via a catch can. The catch can will keep the oil out of the motor, and you still get the benefits of having it hooked up correctly to properly relieve the pressure in the crank case.

i actually agree.

but that said, you guys with 2.2's and basic bolt ons are not creating any kind of crankcase pressure whatsoever to require a breather filter.

Most LSJ's don't need it until they start pushing some serious power and RPM's.

I always got a CEL when I had my ghetto rig and used the little filter. Then I got the Injen and wanted to put it back to see if it worked but decided to follow the way the intake was designed and just hooked up the tube.

I like how the little filter looks, but looks come after performance and reliability.

I like that idea
