Do you have to run vacume lines from the heads to the intake or can you just vent the heads?

I made a custom intake for my 2000 RS and I welded tree pieces of small pipe into a 3" pipe. The small pipes are for the 3 vacume lines that go to the original intake. I had some warranty work done and the dumbass mechanic broke one of the vacume line pipes off. I spent alot of time welding and fabbing that intake and now I have to do it again....

Can I just vent the heads instead of running vacume from the intake?

Yes you can.

I've seen some with small K&N type vent filters on EACH valve cover.

Also others "T" the two hoses together into a catch can or into one small vent filter.


edit:
Tried it with other cars but personally didn't like the constant odor of oil fumes (gives me a headache) so I just left everything hooked-up as oe on my RS.
