Oil Breather Question

Oil Breather Question

I have the Thunder Air Kit on my 05 Aero. I routed the oil breather line (normally connected to the rear of the stock air box) to the forward side of the air filter and attached it to an oil breather filter. I have noticed that, at sustained highway speeds, I will get oil residue on the forward exhaust pipe and right side cover.

I was thinking of ways to fix this without relocating the breather, and it occurred to me that, since the breather is hollow, I could try putting some oil-dry or kitty litter inside to soak up the oil residue.

However, I am concerned that it would block the outflow and have some adverse effect on the engine.

Thoughts?

I would be more concerned with any of it finding it's way back inside the heads...there is a reason it is closed.

I was thinking about that as well...I might be able to get an oil-rag from work and stuff it into the interior of the breather...it looks basically like a large paper towel, but much thicker.

Wow, I completely forgot to update this!

Anyway, I got an oil rag from work, cut a 1" strip off of it, cut that into smaller pieces, maybe 3" long, and stuffed a coupled of them into the breather...worked like a charm!

I figure that if it gets so saturated that it starts blowing oil again,(or dripping) I will just replace the breather and add more rags to the inside. Breathers are cheap, lol!
