    Hey guys.....very good points............ but when i pulled the hose off (the hose running from the oil breather to the Powerfilter tube), after careful inspection of the inside of both ends of the tube, there were NO signs of any residual oil...at all....whatsoever.

    After having 130 hard hours on my ski, I can only attribute this to the 'undulating, scavenging snake' design of the inside of the oil breather assembly....see pic.

    I actually had a Groco strainer setup and ready to go as my converted canister to catch the oil but since there was zero oil found, I just placed the breather on. If i see any oil come from the breather at all....then Ill slap the Groco strainer with the breather attached on there. I'll keep you guys posted.

    My point is, why not take your nifty idea here, and instead of routing it to a breather element, instead route it into an oil vapor canister like they sell at Jegs...

    it does add cost.
    You mean the same thing as a catch can?

    OK guys, Here is the blow off gas bypass I made. I used both RIP's and HYDROTOYS ideas but I also added a check valve to not allow air back into the block. Thanks RIP for the information I relize how much I have forgotten about tuning. It has been along time since I SCCA Solo raced. I also forget that the motor is about the same as a auto motor so the same principals still apply.
    The weather here is in the mid 40's and sucks so this week I will be building up pieces for this weekend to be installed. I have received my blower and ordered the pre filter material so I can complete the hull vent mods. I will also order the Flo-rite vents tonight.

    You shouldn't because it is to allow bypass pressure to be relieved not to remove anything else. The oil is just a substance that is mixed into the gases during the operation of the engine.

    the oil never gets to the top of that black box and the supercharger does not need any more hot air thats why i took mine out i had this done in all my past turbo cars and never had a problem the cooler the air the better the supercharger works
