Volant intake help 3.0l

I got my volant intake from another member on here and im having some troubles putting it in....

Im short one screw. Missing one screw on the filter, to hold it onto the maf sensor is that gonna make a big difference?

The tube coming from the oil thing that goes into the intake tube, doesnt fit in there all the way its loose. Is this gonna be a big deal?

loose the breather hose, and just pop a breather filter (can be found in any ricer section of pepboys etc)onto the part that come off the block or watever. and then cap the intake tube hole with somthn., and then just go to the hardware store and try and find somthn that works for the missing screws

just put a hose clamp on the breather hose. as far as the screw, i would not run for too long without one, even a small air leak will mess up the MAF readings and could damage your engine

what he said and the breather filter is only like $9 at any local auto parts store

you could also look around your house for a nut and bolt to put in there or you could do like i did and use the ones that hold the stock airbox to the MAF

if it were me, i would do it right and just put a 50c hose clamp on the hose so it doesnt fall off. ford engineers designed the PCV system that way, so the vaccuum from the intake would pull air through the PCV valve and out of the crankcase. changing that for any reason would be silly
