Yeah I have already done that... as a matter of fact I bought a new breather hose about a month ago since the old one was cracked. I dont think that connecting of the breather hose should make that much of a difference. Well I might be wrong again...thank you very much for the reply. Oh by the way, did your car hesitate badly uopn acceleration from stop? At this point I think that I am running a lean mixture... thanks again.
