Shouldn't it have 2 clamps on it? Usually what I do is take off all the valve cover nuts then pry up the cover, then pull the cover out of the tube as to not crack the side of the tube (had that happen before when trying to bend the tube to take it off with the cover still seated)

So buy a new tube. You seriously take your valve cover off to get that breather tube off? Talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill. If you don't have a good set of pliers with some variety, and your pulling it off by hand, that thing can get stuck on there pretty good. Just use a flathead screwdriver to pry it away to get it started. once you've broken its grip, twist and pull at the same time. Those hoses can be a ***** sometimes, moreso than you might think.

If you break it, just go to autozone and tell them to cut you like 2 feet of 1/2" tubing, then when you get home you can cut it to length.

edit: oh crap, i just notice you have the stock intake arm, so you wouldn't need 2 feet of tubing. Like 6 inches, then cut to size.

regardless its not even a muscle job or expert job, just pull with pliers and get a couple hoses 1 for PCV and 1 solid piece to get rid of the other coolant line.

I'm wanting to ditch those two stupid little metal pipes that are there. It connects that PCV pipe and coolant pipe for some dumb reason... Is it safe to just replace that coolant hose with a single hose? I'm planning to use a catch can off the valve cover, but that metal hose is IN MY WAY!

Blue = Coolant line
Yellow = PCV line
Red = Metal hose

I got rid of mine...
Just make sure you use screw clamps, though.
I was using the other clamps (the ones you can remove with pliers) and it still leaked a lot of coolant!
It was the same size hose diameter and everything!
But for some odd reason, it only leaked from the upper radiator hose housing.
Just be careful and tighten it up!!!


Blue-Coolant Line
Yellow- PVC Line

thanks guys. Pretty easy to paint.. I followed the guide on here. Removed the screws used aircraft remover (actual name) and then a plastic scraper to get the paint off. Then went to advanced and picked up some high temp engine paint 500degrees i believe.. Few light coats and there ya go :)
