Default What size valve cover breather do i need?

i've seen a few threads that mention that it is just for looks but i dont see the sizes listed. Summit Racing has hundreds of them so i am try to filter my options. Is it 1.25" screw on?

Thanks fellas!!!

Not sure what the exact size is, but I know these will fit (I have one).

What'* the point/advantage to having a Valve Cover Breather?
Other than extra chrome under hood looks nice.

It was used on older engines as a breather for the engine to let out fumes or something like that. The newer cars with all the fancy emmisions, electronics, and such... don't need it. It is purely for looks on cars like ours.

just checking.... I was just about to order that one but it says for series II. There'* not a difference in hole size is there? i'm assuming it should work for my Series I. Oh wait, Pete, your a 94 arent you? that settles that.

Ya, it works on the Series 1 also. They just probably came out with it kinda recently so they didn't mention the Series 1. Glad I could help.

I was surprised it was $50 but they ship in like 2 days!!! And I assumed if it was more it was a little better quality than the other one, but I could be wrong. This one does have 2 pieces to it also

If you want I can send you the logo I made that I put on mine. I'll just have to add the "i"


I have to give props to Allmachtige, I think he was the one who gave me the link.

well, thank you both! The decal would be awesome also. You could just send me the graphic and i could print it out if that would be easier. that would be very cool. If you send me the actual sticker, let me know how much you want for it.

about 45 minutes after i bought it on their site, Terry sent me an email letting me know that its shipping today. now thats service!


Cheers!
