I've had the stainless filter on mine for quite a while with no problems. All the auto parts places have these filters. They push right into the neoprene hose from the filler neck. I put hose clamps on the hose where the filter connects and where it connects to the oil filler neck. Sorry. Pic is a little out of focus.

Not that I can tell. I changed oil yesterday and had some condensation under the cap. However using a filter instead of feeding the breather into the intake has to help keep oily air out of the throttle body.

True. In through the breather, out through the PCV.

From the pictures,it's hard to tell,but,do you put the filter in-line(like a gas filter)or,run it straight to the filter and stop it?
