Now see I originally though about getting the breather hat off a 5.7L vortec but when I looked at one on my buddies tahoe the TB was way to small for my TBi.

I'm half tempted to have my cousin build me one from tin fiberglass and plastic fuller... The guy is amazing with body work so I figured this would be something he could build... Then I'll get one of those couplers and the pvc and go about it that way. I have no idea what it would look like yet but I'm just having brain waves right now.

lol ain't that the truth!! Well once again I got a brain wave and I just now ventured over to pirate and I think I found what I need! Although seeings how I don't have a motor that requires 1000cfm of air or will ever have a motor that requires 1000cfm of air I think I'll be ok with running 3" PVC from this air box down past the exhaust on the pass. side along the frame rail up through the bed and attach it to the double/single roll bar in the bed and then I will tap and thread holes for the tranny vent tcase vent rear axle vent and the front axle vent and the gas tank vent all without a mess of vent hoses running up uder my hood I'll just tap the holes into the pvc tubing as I come to the parts that need vents. Of course the front and rear axle and gas tank vents will have to be plumbed to the pvc but the tranny and the tcase I'll just run direct. So I think that's my plan of action... Now all I have to do is find the air box from a 1986 cadillac!

P.S. - under the hood on that truck is pretty nasty.. by no means were my engine bays show worthy, but i at least kept them cleaner than that.. even if covered by a layer of mud.. lol
