      My fav part:

      To ensure that no oil comes
      out of the breather, these have welded
      baffles that are guaranteed to
      not fail
      Haha!

      But i really want one and for that price WOW!!!

      I really want one of these, but just want to confirm that with the add-on filter a catch can is not *needed*.

      I'd prefer to not have an oily mess in the engine bay.. and this would look sexy next to the SRI i have on order

      From all appearances this looks like a both cosmetic and functional addition to the SRI over a catch can or downdraft tube.

      i received mine last week and installed it with the add on filter. it was alot bigger than i expected. but the baffle works great and no oil film or residue is noticeable

      I sent u guys an email today.
      Is it possible also to run a smaller filter instead of the large one seen above? I saw a few on eBay that were a size 12mm and they were green instead of red. Ordering kit soon

      I'm soo lost on how us with catch cans empty them with oil, gas, water in them and these magical valve covers can run a breather and not create a mess in the bay... For example I had to throw away the filter to my catch can because it created a film all over the bottom of the hood.

      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

      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?

      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.
