Very good question, I was wondering if I should get a breather and how does it affect the catch can.

My last breather had the same brown oil coating too. Imo, don't need the breather. May be better off getting another catch can for that side if you race a lot. Mfgr said for normal driving, that side isn't as dirty.

As recommended by Tracy, Brakleen and blast with compressed air.

Cleans up nice.
