Cold air intake with breather

If I bypass the hose from the oil crank that connects to the cai and replace the oil crank with a breather will that successfully add 1 or 2 more hp?

I really wouldn't be worried about 1 or 2 HP. You could take the trunk carpet out and gain more performance than 1 or 2 HP.

Re: Cold air intake with breather

If done properly, it will reduce the amount of condensation and gunk build up in the upper intake manifold. I do not believe it as easy as how you described it though.
Go to SuperSixMotorsports.com and read the "pcv delete/bypass" instructions before you attempt it.
Good luck with it.

it wont do anything other than keep potential oil out of the intake. There are huge discussions on metered vs non metered air~ if there is no oil in the intake, leave the connection.

Could the breather be harmful?

Is that how you did it too? I remember reading it and not fully comprehending everything 100%. I was going to call them before doing it but now I seem to have everything under control with Seafoam treatments and a catchcan in the works.

Eliminating the entire set up isn't a good idea IMO. Fords engineers had good reason to put it there. If vapourized oil was a bad idea I am sure they woulda done something about it. Personally I think unless your boosted the catch can is a waste of money. There is so little oil being sucked into the intake and it's far enough upstream that it re-condenses long before it hits the combustion chamber. Put in a catch can if you really are concerned however it's irrelevant....unless your boosted. Under boost much more oil seems to vapourize however still a mute point because it simply isn't a problem. It not as if it's going to foul plugs or ruin sensors.

This is good advice. If it isn't causing a problem don't **** with it. If it ain't broke don't fix it. And as far as un-metered air is concerned there is so little being sucked in from that minute tube that it's irrelevant.
