    i used a length of pipe and fitted it so the fumes exit next to my cone filter so fumes suck straight back through system there are other better ways out there i beleive you can put it inside your 2.2 airbox but i just love the chatter the cone gives off

    What you mean like drill a hole in the box then put the pipe + filter inside the airbox under the filter?

    Wont that make the filter all oily etc?

    I've drilled a hole and plumbed it into the bottom of the airbox, that way it's getting filtered a few times before going back into the engine.

    not sure on that if your air filter will get oily as i havent done this mod no oil comes out of my breather filter so cant imagine your air filter will get crapped up over night i wouldnt say its a big issue if you have standard £3 filter just have a look in a month or so see what its like if it is fine then you could think about a panel filter upgrade
