That cover is the same as the Jag cover I've been showing you.... that small tube that is the vent in the photo is upside down...... meaning the cover is upside down ....

The bad thing about that vent tube is there is no way to attach a braided line to the cover.... and it's probably rubber or plastic and will deteriorate in due time, no that won't work for a race track.... especially when you oil gets up to 300*plus degrees.... you need to do a 1/4" NPT the hole and attach a plug in that hole and then drill a hole in the top of the rear end where you have less chance of getting oil in the vent line.

In this photo you can see how we drilled a hole in the top of the housing and put in a 90*degree nipple then put a fuel filter in line with the line going to the catch can. we also have the mods to the inside of the rear cover.... doesn't matter if it's steel or aluminum... that vent hole has to have the cover and fences to prevent oil from getting into the line.

If you are going to do it.... do it Right and then you don't have to be concerned about it later ..... like at a track ...
