    Yes you can pull it apart. Just be careful in that the hard plastic likes to crack on the back side around where it y's at. Even if it does break there are a couple of easy fixes that cost far less then replacing that piece.

    That reminds me, I need to put my new hose assy on, got it for $80 shipped, and is GM. Just gotta buy a catch can, wish they had a catch setup for the back of the heads.

    Not sure if they still make it, but I love the catch can I purchased from Elite Engineering. It is small, works well, and doesn't look like a hardware store hanging off the side of the engine.
