The items I used for the complete job.....5 feet of black reinforced tubing 3/8 ID X 5/8 OD, 1 nylon tee, 2 straight nylon connectors, 1 fram filter, 6 black zip ties, 2 small screw clamps, 2 8mm silicon spark plug boots, JB weld to cover the holes in the air cleaner with sheet metal or what ever....right around $25 or so. Eventually I did away with the fram filter, but I would recommend it until you find out how much oil you are eliminating....I eliminate very little, so it works good for me.

Go to search and put in EBS or External Breathing System and you will get a lot of info..
I will. Thanks for the info and the list what you used!

Will that amount of hose in your air filter not be restricting and disrupting air flow rather badly?

There was a concern that the tubing would perhaps impact the flow of incoming air....as you can see the tubing is close to the back cover and doesn't impact any air going to the air filter once it is inside. Of course this is using the stock air filter and container. Hopefully the following two pictures show that,

I have the SE filter and it has 2 hoses going into the TB. I drilled 2 holes in the backing plate and ran them out the back. Like This http://xlforum.net/forums/showpost.p...60&postcount=9
