Default Valve Cover Breather Recommendations

Anyone have any recommendations on Valve Cover Breathers. I have the cheap Mr. Gasket ones and they tend to leak which tends to run down the valve cover and end up in the Bilge. I want some Filtered ones - need them to go up and angle properly so they sit straight up. Any Recommendations??

I believe I have the Gen IV valve covers, the ribbed ones with the push in breather hole that points straight out at a 45 degree angle.

Don't want a puke tank at this point.

I don't think you would want a catch can, are you NA or boost?

Unless you put in a puke tank you can expect to keep cleaning it up.

To me the puke tank made a bunch of diff!! I don't even get that crank case oil smell anymore when ya run it hard.Every filter/breather iv seen and had leaked on the valve cover.This tank is 79. at Peterson.It has a baffle plate and foam in it.

Also all the small breather/puke tank with the chrome filter on top Ive seen leak and blow oil out.

I have some more picks

There breather tanks.

I had this one on the Scarab at 12psi, you could smell the oil and see the steam come out of the K&N breather on it.http://www.petersonfluidsys.com/Photos/brecansm.jpg The big lines (#12) lets the oil separate from the blowby also the take will separate it. I had a 3/8 line going to a K&N this is the way Whipple did it, it would blow oil every were. Once I put the tank on it no oil vapor coming out of it and I don't have that burnt oil smell coming from it anymoreyou could do the tank a nd get them to put hose barbs and run rubber hose or something like it to make it cheaper,the #12 stuff like I did is expensive. Like I said the tank is only 79 and they will make it in ant configuration of fittings,hope this helps

Thanks guys - I won't even waste my time than with "nicer" breathers....just go straight to a tank....

Will I be able to use a push in style line on the valve cover or will I have to have something made that is more "permanent" - like a screw in fitting on the Valve Cover?
