breather filter

:D:Djust seen these things on the net looked like a air filter/k&n shape but smaller for the breather hose that splits from the airbox to the rocker cover wich does away with the say 25% of the air taking a right turn where it splits in the hose from airbox to throttle on a cinq sx they r only 9.99 in motoworld has ne1 ever fitted one of these do you think it would be worth it as i recon about 15% more air would go directly to the throttle instead of spliting and going to the breather tube :D:D

when take it of is sucks loads of air in and idles better

If you use a K&N or similar, they're fine. If you bang it on the cam cover and don't have some way of drawing the fumes away, the car will ming unbearably of oil mist fumes drawn through the heater.

from what i understand from your post, you've confused whats going on. the oil breather vents the crankcase fumes into the airbox, theres no air coming from outside into the breather.

if you do fit one tho, as pete has said you need to locate it properly or your car will ming.

mine is on a tube and pushed over t'other side of the bay - like so

'cos it allows extra unfiltered air into the engine.
