ive just pluged the pipe and fitted the breather filter and the tickover is very poor indeed sad.gif

even when warm so i dont think the t-piece will work for me?

will i thottle reset do the trick?


I tried this mod as well just very quickly by taking the pipe out and blocking it temporarily. As mentioned tickover was poor as so was the sound the car made.

Probably needs a good ECU reset and a thrashing so that the car can re-learn the new MAF values, however I am a little bit concerned .....will this mod reduce the vacuum pressure of the engine?

Also Wayne could you please post a picture of what you done?

Here you are Gio, just for you (and anyone else interested)

T piece off the head, one to the inlet tract, other for breather.



The breather.



It sits between battery and top hose.

Just read this old thread. Apologise for my tardiness in replying.

Not surprised that blocking off one of the vapour inlets into the air intake and adding a 'breather' filter makes for lumpy running. I understand that doing such a thing would firstly disable the vacuum system of the 145 in sucking the nasty oily condensed vapours out of the engine back into the air intake for recirculation. Secondly, under normal driving conditions I think adding a breather filter would be sucking in hot air from the engine bay (not what we want if we can help it although the air in the engine is already hot anyway) or even worse - though its unlikely, that the 145 engine could produce enough pressure to cough oil and water vapours out of the breather which would give the engine bay a nice coating of oil. Also the breather would be an extra source of air that the ECU may not factor in. All results in lumpy running.

Still got my nice breather that I was so desperate to use cuz it does look cool. Same thing happened to me: it made for lumpy running rant.gif Whatever you do don't put it on the other outlet for the pipe that goes into the throttle body!! Instead, put an oil catch can in situ to filter those oily watery vapours before they get sucked into the throttle and air intake whilst maintaining the integrity of the air vacuum recirculation biggrin.gif
