I have been reviewing posts about replacing the intake silencer with a K&N filter. Some have also connected the breather to the K&N. There seems to be no consensus on if this is a good idea or not, however in reply #2 to this post https://forums.sailboatowners.com/index.php?threads/k-and-n-air-filter.157234/#post-1067120 Jessie says he tried it and decided to disconnect. Where should I route the breather line if I go with the K&N but do not connect the two together? The existing hose is 5/8" ID and very flexible. What type of hose is used for this application?
