I don't mean to step on Eric's thread but if you put air pressure to the stock vent hole while you drill and tap it will blow the chips out and you don't have to split the case. If you are going to split the case, drill and tap it while the case is apart. This has been discussed before on this forum about air pressure to the cases. I have done it many times with success. The fittings should be 1/4" pipe 90 deg to 3/8" hose barb. Any smaller ID hose will not breath. I don't use a breather bottle with a bottom inlet since the fluid that runs back into the gearbox is usually part water from condensing. I drain out the fluid that gets in the bottle. It is mostly water from everything being hot and then cold. I run the engine oil tank breather to another inlet on the same breather bottle.

Just curious if it would be a great idea to install a oil catch can after the tranny breather?

I have found that Redline Oil Shock Proof gear oil works the best. We here in the Northwest use the light wt. since the weather isn't extremely hot. It's also available in heavy wt. It sticks to all surfaces in the gearbox so it seems to work the best for us. My second choice would be Royal Purple.
