Hallo
I have the K&N SRI and the also included a little air filter for the valve cover. What i noticed recently is that oil comes out of it. It was dirty and i washed it, but like a month later i can see that its still dirty, full of oil... Is that normal??

You need to hook it back up to the intake. Your rings will thank you. If your intake doesn't have a place to hook it up sell it and buy one that does. You can run a catch can between the valve cover and the air intake to help keep the oil out.

Not having it hooked up can cause engine wear. There's no reason to have it not hooked up. If you get a lot of blow by put a catch can between the valve cover and air intake. I have a catch can on mine but it rarely has any oil in it.
