      im going to start my project soon and have a few questions for now one is, what do i do with my crank case breather? do i just put a filter on the opining?
      and what are people doing for jets?
      is there a specific way to tap for a break booster or could i use the nozzle thats originally on the lower half of a 16v intake mani? heres a pic of the nozzle im talking about.

      Run a catch can for the breather, an the fuel return you shoudnt need anymore. you can cap it off or run a return from your fpr to it

      I am in the middle of putting mine together right now ( 1.8 16v on r1 carbs) if you have any other questions feel free to pm me

      vacuum for your booster I taped one of the plugs I made for the injector holes. Once you plug the holes that port you have circled will be useless. And as someone said above run a catch can off your breather. it will reduce the mess on your motor.


      The plugs are 22mm with a 1.5 thread pitch iirc.

      Question. What kind of tools do you have access to? I made the the breather block off with a 1/4" inch piece of steel. Traced the breather shape and cut it down with a band saw. Then used a grinder to make it look pretty. As for throttle cable I'd find a motorcycle shop to alter yours or make one.

      thank you for replying none has for awhile and today with my free time i took the breather off my spare 1.8l 16v block and went to advanced autoparts and got rubber gromets for valve covers and then got a plastic piece that fits my catch can hose and it worked out pretty nicely tomoro im ganna put it on my car. but im wondering if i should drill and tap a hole into my valve cover and run my catch can to that to?

      If the breather hose is a pretty good diameter (like 1/2 inch) I wouldn't worry about it.
