    After seeing a few people having these fitted at our last meet in aberdeen i thought it was time to make one, rather than buy one as they are not really cheep.

    The fittings an be bought from ebay.

    The 90* fitting is £11 you will need 2 of them.

    The weld in male fitting an be bought from the same place also. £3 and £1.25 postage. 2 will also be needed.

    The tubing is again from the same place priced at £9.69 per meter. I bought 2 meters just to be safe.

    This is how i did it :)

    First of all you need a cam cover, and you will need to remove the pcv valve and the metal breather.

    the areas marked in black are to be cleaned/ removed

    [​IMG]

    cut off the metal oem breather pipe

    [​IMG]

    once it has been removed drill the bottom half out of the cam cover and increase the size of the hole.
    CLEAN OUT ALL METAL SWARF/SHAVING FROM DRILLING!!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    clean off any paint or oil fron the to open holes.

    these will be welded in as showen.

    and look like this

    The best way to weld the fittings in would be to warm up the cam cover but i did not want to damage any seals.
    TIG welder set for TIG on A/C around 110amps (for some of you someone else be welding this but it takes no time at all to do, so if they give you a stupid price walk... this will take no longer that 15mins if cleaned and ready to weld) MAKE SURE THAT THE FITTINGS AND CAM COVER ARE SPOTLESS!!!!

    as you can see when i wire brushed the cam cover just about all of the paint came off lol

    ALL DONE :)

    [​IMG]

    i gave it another paint in the same colour :)

    I hope this helps you guys. i will show you guys pics of it fitted too.

    I will upload the pictures very soon and a step by step. its not hard but i though i would show everyone how i did my cam cover :)
