anyone run the kits or make their own instead of having breathers and pcv? i currently have one breather for my fill tube on the intake, no pcv. i have fabbed aluminum valve covers to run and i want to weld in a threaded bung and run a -8an line off each cover down to the collector on each header, and just weld in a pipe on the collector and slip the other end over. anyone have pictures of how they ran theirs? thanks.

and yes, i know what happens with not running a pcv. regardless, i do not plan to run one.

I made mine for my 396 in my 60 Chevy. Got 2 A.I.R. check valves off of a Chevy (people used to give them away - got mine for free). You can buy them. http://www.oreillyauto.com/EW3/Prod... OHV&bid=1247544263696&cycleCount=735¤tPage=0
Bought a black pipe nipple at the hardware store (probably about 6" long). Cut it in half and welded them in the collectors at a 45 deg. angle so they extended about half way into the collector and mounted the check valves to them. Bought a set of cheap Chrysler breathers.

Heater hose between the caps and the check valves. I teed one of the hoses and ran a PCV to the intake. Really cheap and worked like a champ.
