It looks like the filter was to small to fit directly onto the valve cover

Yeah there was no way. The hole in that filter was TINY. Like pencil eraser size. So I had to make something work. This was it.

I take it this mod is for both the 4.7 and the 5.7? If anyone has done this on the hemi, have you noticed any improvement power.performance wise?

Just an FYI, I'm pretty sure that breather hose is the breather that let's clean air into the crankcase. If so, then this mod doesn't do anything, which is fine, just an FYI.

Air enters the breather(from the filtered side of the air cleaner) and then gets circulated into the crankcase then out the PCV on the opposite valve cover.

If you do this mod you are just giving the breather it's own filter instead of sharing the regular air filter.

Probably, but I'm not very familiar with the layout of the breather and pcv on the hemi. Just about every modern engine uses this setup though.
