Ok, I am in need of an open breather for the Mopar Performance aluminum covers.
Both sides have a twist on cap , pass side only has the pcv , but I dont have an open breather on drivers side .

I have found twist in breathers that will replace the cap. Or else you can find a grommet and tube to go to the air cleaner. The one thing about those covers were the lack of quality fitting pieces to do the job neatly. The are kind of a bastard cover in my opinion.

I recently bought a set of Micky Thompson cast covers. Scott Drake makes a twist on oil tube that's a restoration piece for a Mustang but, the tube will accept a stock Mopar breather, which allowed me to use it to hook up the air hose to my stock unsilenced air cleaner.

Don't know if this helps you but, maybe an option for those covers too.

...or bend the tabs on the cap...
IIRC, I once added a push-in breather to a set of MP cast covers by drilling out one of the blank holes & using a grommet.

That should fit. For some reason some fit to loose and you might have to make a thin shim to go behind the sealing washer. Then again you might be good.
The Spectra I bought is actually pretty tight. I use it as a breather and oil fill.
