By adding vacuum to these vents any fluid that reaches the tubes [splashed or otherwise] could be inhaled by the engine. Fumes and vapors could also become a problem and have an effect on the various sensors in the intake/fuel system.
Just something to keep in mind.
Your work looks very good, Keep it up
Hey guys. Did we ever get an answer on this thought from JLC08JK? And hows the snorkle working?

I've had 0 problems with this.

I don't think there is enough suction to the breather hose inlet for this to be a concern, 1, the snorkel should provide enough airflow and secondly, it would take a fairly high amount of pressure to suck oil through the length of the breather hoses.
