You need some kind of oil barrier. This usually set up using some baffle 
plates and a membrane valve, while the valve vents to the carbs. There 
may be some baffle plates in the valve cover but on the pipe on the 
valve cover there should normally be a largish valve (ca. 2-3") with a 
disc held by a spring on top, perhaps your car will have a different 
The vent can be fitted to one or all K&N covers bij drilling a hole and 
fit a suitable nipple.
