2000 RS crankcase ventilation... HELP!

Can somebody tell me if you need the hoses from the heads to the intake or can you just vent the heads. ( on a 2000 RS )

You don't want to vent the crank case directly off the head, cause when you turn, your crankcase vent filters will turn into little sprinklers and spray oil all over the side of your engine and anything near it.

I have mine routed via silicon hose to a higher location by the throttle body because the oil can't travel that high.

hmmm, never seen that "sprinkler effect", but yes I suppose it can happen if the car isn't shutdown long enough for the [oil] vapor to completely drain down.


edit:
BTW, www.summitracing.com sells a cheapo breather tank #(SUM - G1504) for $30.
