Crankcase ventilation.

Routes the oil vapor from the valve cover into the the intake to be burned.

Similar to PCV. I'd put that back the way it was.

The valve cover side needs to stay vented so at a minimum put a mini filter on that side. Its not emmissions friendly in this fashion. Thats a decision you will need to make.
