You can install a mini filter for that breather hose instead of pulling it from the intake tubing if you don't know how to get that connection done. You will have to replace or clean two filters though afterwards.

Picture shows the setup I am mentioning.

yeah all the little hose is positive crank ventilation, keeping gases out of the crank case
think of it like a bov venting to atmosphere in a turbo setup if you put a little breather on there instead; as MFury said theres not really any need to hook the hose up if you can put a breather on there, it'll work the same. is the other hose you're talking about the one going to the throttle body, on the side of the block down towards the bottom? take a picture of the stock setup and circle what ya need and I'm sure we'll be able to help you=]

I will take picture tomorrow, but the other hose is...if you take the picture of Mfury, is under he strutbar, side of the SRI.

If I understood, you don't need to connect it?...just clogged it? or let it reject in the air?

With the breather hose connected to the intake box it acts like a vacuum so it helps pull gases from the crank case. The filter does the same thing, just not as effectively.

the breather is were Mfury put a small filter?

I have one place to connect a hose on my SRI...but I have 2 hoses.

I will connect the breather on the intake....it's the second hoses that I don't know what to do with...

Maybe the term "hose" is confusing? Let's call the air intake large tubes the "tubes" and the small hose that the little filter in that picture is connected to the "hose". The picture I posted isn't my car since I have the TurboKits CAI which has the hose connector attached to the intake tube and mine is red.
The stock setup has two tubes, one with air coming into the air filter box and another going to the intake from that air filter box. The CAI replaces both of those tubes with a shorter metal tube attaching to the intake.
I made some diagrams using paint so don't mind the artistry.

Mine's Canadian and MFury is in Canada and his picture doesn't show it. I don't have that hose either, but my intake tube has the provision where that 2nd hose would connect to the intake tube next to the breather connection.

Whether its some kind of smog return or what I have no idea.

Yup agreed, I was going to say the same thing;)
does that second hose go into the motor or does it go into a charcoal canister?

I was thinking maybe automatic tranny breather hose? Haven't seen under the hood of an automatic so not sure on their setup.
