Does anyone know if it's a good idea to put those little breather filters on the valve covers or do you really need the EGR for some purpose?

The reason I ask is because I just got my Injen CAI for my 05 RS and I'd rather not get a bunch of crap building up on the inside.

Thanks

Sean

i might be wrong but egr is for the emissions portion, disconnecting it/removing it may throw an engine light

Gotcha.

It'll probably spew a bunch of crap all over the engine as well, huh?

I had a homade intake that came wit the car and I ended up using the breathers onthe a intake and taking some hose and pluggin it into the valve cover and looping it down the side of the engine... No problems yet, so I would say go for it....

I've read somewhere on this forum that it's not a great idea. If you're that booked on bling, go on, but I don't see the merit.

If you do decide to do this, try to find a check valve to only allow air into the engine. That way you will still have a working pcv system.

I don't see anything wrong with at least trying it.(with the check valves)
