Thread: R&D vent kit baffles.

R&D vent kit baffles.
I'm in the middle of installing my crank vent and catch can goodies from Earthshaker
I thought I would post a pic of the inside of a 07 vent box with the R&D kit installed. I wanted to see if anyone could figure out what the baffles actually do to help or redirect the flow out of the vent tube on the block.
I'll post another thread about pulling the vent box without removing the exhaust manifold later on this afternoon. Gotta go to Lowes and get a larger unibit so I can drill out the hole for the gromit that comes in the OCMS kit.
Check out the diff in size between the stock tube and gromit VS the OCMS ones

The baffles are there to act like a chevron or mositure seperator. It should seperate the heavy vapor or condensed gas out of the air by forcing the air to make several turns and collisions before exiting. If I remember correctly it is a direct path to the entrance and exit.

I removed my box and got the 08 hose straight to the valve cover.

jw..when the vapor leaves the breather box and goes into the valve cover what is this doing?..i ask because my hose that goes from the box to valve cover is becoming hard and losing the new grey color?..is too much fuel vapor entering the valve cover area?

You can also clearly see that crankcase oil and fuel vapor is condensing or at least being separated by baffling to a degree inside that box on Beagle's ski to stay on track and inline with what JW said, as I agree.
