Crankcase vent filter?

hi guys would it be okay to put a little breather air filter on my crankcase vent ? Just wondering if it would harm my truck or not. Any feedback is appreciated.

I wonder if it would interfere with the stock crankcase ventilation.

If you close the crankcase vent, all blowby will exit your new breather, up high on the engine for easy access to the operators cab...

What is your intended purpose for this? It won't stop oil from coming out, and could become a restriction causing other expensive issues.

Custom pinstriped Power Wheel. I started out with very little... I still have most of it. Feel free to PM me anytime.

You don't want to stop the steam from exiting...

That's why I routed over the back of the engine so it doesn't get sucked in my the vents or the windows. Also no you don't want a filter on it because when it get wet with water vapor or oil it will eveentual plug up and blow the seals or gaskets on the engine.
