      Also is that a 10 an, or is that a npt thread to accept a npt to -10an fitting?

      If I can seriously run this valve cover with just a filter with no mess I'll buy one... It's just if there is no can to catch the waste/blowby where is it going if its not coming out of the filter creating a mess? That's the question I've yet to see asked or addressed, and ultimately keeping me from biting the bullet if you will..
      That's exactly what I emailed BW about because INA told me that there's would give an oil film in the engine bay. I asked how much oil has covered the engine since their install. I'm down to buy one but not down to clean my engine bay every weekend from spraying oil. The filter looks bad ass compared to a catch can. Besides catch cans are expensive especially when they are specifically made for the 2.5

      *ignore the mount to the side
      Looks Like oil on top of the filter or something burned.

      If there is no film running an open filter my concern is where does the water and wasted gas/oil go?

      i have had mine installed for a couple weeks now i even hit redline multiple times at higher RPMs when blowblow gases should be most and the baffle is working well so far.

      thanks, yes that is the UM SRI and the BFI mount is awesome! Iboth
      to me, those are the best 2 mods(including the tune) i have spent on the car. and then the valve cover adds some aesthetics to the bay

      I'm just affraid of buying parts for this motor anymore. I don't think certain companies are straight with people. For example when I received my eurojet vc I knew the baffle would fail but I just installed it anyway, and well it fell out even tho they said it was fine and pressed with great tolerance lol.

      I want to know where all the water oil and gas goes if it doesn't come through the baffle. Just trickle down into the oil pan, intake ports. Ultimately the future side effects from keeping the waste contained in the motor...

      Got my response.

      Also the breather filter works just fine. We have one on our turbo 2.5l and no oil residue comes out at all.

      Ok.. but what happens to the water vapor and left over unburnt fuel? Because I could see that causing catastrophic results if the blowby freezes in the head... Multiple times this winter the blowby in my catchcan was frozen because of the water content...

      Which is what was causing the valve cover to lift and blow out the gasket, to release the pressure...

      Yeah. I didn't think of that Kevin. I just sent Gabe a message to please respond to this question. I'm ready to order as soon as we have an answer and it's legit.
      Wouldn't it recirculate just like the stock set up?
      And kev on ur Eurojet cover did u have to use a boost plug like in the DIY?

      Yes -- you still need to plug the factory PCV valve thingy. You can always run a catch can and run the outlet hose/port to the PCV valve to recirculate the fumes, but that's optional.

      The baffle plate on the IE Valve Cover completely dominates that of the EuroJet design -- thus why I didn't pick it up and saved the cash for the IE.

      I have my IE Valve Cover sitting in my garage but I am waiting on my EuroJet AmmoBox Catch Can to come in for a complete installation (plus I don't have a -10AN plug).

      No you would have to run a hose to the intake manifold. I plugged it with a bmx bar end.

      No apparently I don't own a ej vc, and they've been telling people they have mine and took care of it.

      I know it dominates, but I need my questions answered. I'm not gonna install another part that will cause internal problems down the road. Want to know where the waste goes if the baffle does not allow fluid to escape, so a catchcan would be pointless on this cover, based on what they are saying, a waste of moneys.

      Lots of moneys I just sold my AirLift setup, so I'm thinking of what to buy Going with Accuair, and bagyard next spring.

      As soon as my questions are answered the sooner I can sell my ej setup to the confirmed buyer

      From Gabe:

      The condensation is released along with the air in the engine. Oil doesn't come through because the baffle keeps it from splashing out. With a properly breathing system it shouldn't be releasing oil into the air. Also there should be no fuel in the valvetrain. Any oil that is pumped up into the top of the head will just slowly work its way back into the oil pan.

      I think this confirms that I make my purchase soon.

      What do u think Kevin?

      Gabe said in 2 weeks they will have red and black powdercoated covers but if you want the silver one you have to special order it.

      Ya, the milky oil you see in your catch cans is just oil frothed up with water- given time, it'll separate back into oil and water. When this happens IN the engine, the water is boiled off, goes out as vapor with the blowby, leaving the oil behind. That's what you want- emptying catch cans full of **** every week sucks.

      That's also why it's essential to get your oil up to temperature at least once every day or two. Water is a regular byproduct of combustion and therefore if the oil temps are not hot enough it starts to build up pretty quickly.

      The OE valve cover baffle setup also works well- we have an OE valve cover on our dyno motor right now just because supplies are limited on the billet ones- it doesn't spew crap everywhere either.

      Gabe will have red and black anodized ones- we are machining them as I'm typing. The anodize should let the billet sexyness shine through much better then powdercoat.

      Pete and Gabe. Thanks for chiming in and helping us. I will be ordering in a few days. All you have right nor are the raw ones correct? I'd rather not have painted or anodized.

      Also does your kit contain the plug sold by Integrated when ordering the breather or are you required to then order through integrated for that?

      Also do you have the part number to the oem valve cover gasket?

      You have to buy the plug separately.

      So your breather is sitting down by subframe?

      Well if water vapor is all that comes out sure why not. Keep me from smelling the fumes.

      i havent really smelt anything unless i deliberately put my nose right up to the breather cap and inhale lol. even at stoplights when there is no air passing through or if i let the car sit and idle i dont smell any fumes. the set up they offer is practical and works so far for me just as is. i just hope when winter time comes around and when the climate changes that this wont take a crap on me.

      Dave ran his for the end of winter and into spring so far- no problems. Utah isn't ultra cold though... However, I would expect much less problems since the overall volume of liquid that must be dealt with is lower.
