    The air cleaner should have come with provisions to hook up all emission equip. Should be a fitting on the bottom of the air cleaner for the tube or hose to slip over.

    You can get a small K&N breather filter to go there.

    Use a piece of hose as a sleeve to connect the two.

    there should be a breather on one valve cover and a pcv valve that hooks to manifold vacuum on the other. you are hooking your pcv valve to your air filter? I'm confused /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
