Yes, I am going to call K&N and see what they say. I would like the newer style filter without the vent if they have it. Will keep everyone posted in case someone else has the same question come up.
I'm late to the party on this and did not read the entire conversation. So if this has already been covered I'm sorry for a repeat.
It has been my experience that, if you remove the hose coming from the valve cover you must have a breather type vent. It allows the crank case to ventilate and if you close it off you will create a ton of back pressure that will sure blow out some seals. A lot of times those breather caps with no hose will spew out oil at higher RPMs.
