It should be the one from the passenger valve cover to the TB. There should be a pcv valve on that line near the valve cover (or right there at the valve cover). The other line from the driver valve cover to the airbox should be just that, a line, with no pcv valve. I'm not sure why there are two lines (1 at each valve cover) but I would guess the one without the pcv valve sucks in fresh air and the one with the pcv is obviously the "vent".

That should be correct. I will say though I don't have the hemi so I'd wait for someone else to respond as well...

Crushervsounds like u got it.

Ramfd it catches oil from going back into the intake and preventing grime. I used a water separator for an air compressor. Works great and a fraction of the cost of the one shown above. Dirty but here's mine.

:smileup: I like this one, you can see how much oil is in it, then you`ll know when to empty it.
