Are you putting in a STI block or are you putting a WRX block into a STI? If you are putting the STI block into the WRX, just cap it off.

Either way, just cap it off. It's a crankcase vent.

You know....someone's gonna ask you why on earth you'd replace the 257 with the 207..... I'm curious.....

EDIT: I see you have a JDM STi......nevermind. I didn't think they had the extra vent so automatically thought of the 257.

Hmm...with my car I tapped it into the PCV and made sure to put a catch can somewhere along the way. Either that or you can cap it off.

Everyone that I know that has had one of these has just capped it with no ill effects. Get a plastic cap and a hose clamp and just seal it up...
