      I hope so. I don't want to spend another 400$ just to have my valve cover gasket blowout again...

      It's below freezing here every night for half the year- I would guess that in this case, how much below doesn't really matter too much.

      Just buy OEM from the dealer -- not gonna top OEM quality.

      Whatever you can or could save you will likely lose out in good ol'ECS Shipping Charges...

      Honestly, I got mine for the same price that ECS advertises at the dealership. Most will have it in stock if you just call.

      Once I sell this clutch kit, this is the first thing I'm buying (with the filter)!

      Now, If I want to dump it to my exhaust (as I don't want to cover my engine bay with oil), do I need to grab an AN fitting and line and route it back there? or what is the best way to do it?

      You need to buy the exhaust nipple, the check valve, a -10 to 5/8 adaptor and roughly 4 feet of -10 hose, and buy another 4 feet of 5/8 hose.. thelat one will be cheap. Then its a matter or welding.

      On my experience, the car likes the downdraft over the exhaust vacuum.

      I have the nipple, I was planning to do it earlier just never got around to it haha. This gives me a good step towards it though. I was reading that the check-valve wasn't needed.... Thanks Fred!

      I ran with no valve, and it was aweful. Our exhaust flows too much, so it creates a lot of vacuum... Even with the check valve, we flow a lot... I was sucking 1 at of oil every 600 miles... I have been running a downdraft since then, and its been perfect. Not 1 drop wasted and I'm 3500 miles since the last change.

      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..
      I saw one with just the breather and it does vent fumes that you can see when the engine is running. I'm sure that it condenses in the catch can and if you were to always run the breather there would be some residue overtime.
