I did the same exact thing. In addition, I installed a cone breather filter to the "oil breather tube".

There are sevreal ways to install a breather filter. First and most simple way, is to attach the breather filter hose to the little black "U-shape" rubber tube that runs from (the side towards the back) valve cover to the air filter box.

The other way, is to cut the breather filter's hose with a switch-blade or a drywall blade. To a size that will directly bolt-on the "oil breather tube" from the valve cover. After that, you can tighten the breather filter hose to the "oil breather tube" with a stainless steel hose clamp. The hose clamp is included with most breather filters.

I wish I had pics to help out with the installation, but I'll try to post some when I have the chance.

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/a...pictureid=8594. That's what I did to mine, filter, adapter, and a good cleaning lol. What you can't see is there is a 3" hose leading to the lower grille and a new scoop to get more cold air to the filter. Plus I'm having a heat shield fabricated for it as we speak
