SI tube is silicon tube , SI is the atomic symbol (see peirodic table) for silicon.. Breathers are small air filters..

You're building an intake made of sand??

Better take a trip down to payless and ask them for a few thousand of those little silica gel packets that come in shoeboxes. Be careful not to eat them.

No, you cant put breaters on our engines and help anything... You will just loose the engine vacum and cause the car to run crappy.

i understood completely, but you can't really put breathers on anything in our engine... well you can, but as Kostamojen said it will run really crappy.

there really isn't that much hose to run either. should be simple.

I too know what breathers are, but didn't get from what he was talking about that they were that kind of breather. He mentions CAI and wanting to eliminate excess silicone (silicon) tubing which made no sense either.

How do breathers=CAI that is now the question koolaid?

Enlighten us.

ive had breathers on my car for a while and never noticed any difference in myrs. i did it to keep oil from going back in the hrottlebody. i dont think it should be a problem since people like rallyspec sold there intake with a catch can w/breater on top. also all the wrx guys put the perrin catch cans on. i guess do what you want to do but you cant just put the breathers on the heads cause there so low, you still have to run some hose or t it off and run one breather. hope this helps

Enlighten us.
If you produce your own intake you loose the hose barbs to connect the PVC and valve covers to. There are only 3 hoses attatched to the intake before the thottle body.

You can put breathers on the valve covers, and apply vacuum to the PVC. The logical thing to do, since you have to put a vacuum to the PVC, is to just buy a 4 way "T" fitting and apply vacuum to everything and be done with it, and get away with not buying 2 breathers.
