Learn something new everyday.....didn't know breather filters were illegal....

Had one on my turbo cavy. It wasn't pointless, the crankcase needs ventilation, and I didn't just want an open hole in my valve cover, so naturally I put a filter breather on......no biggy.

its illegal because your venting crankcase gases into the atmosphere instead of recycling it , emissions crap..

If your intake has a velocity stack, it will sound even weirder.
