LOL
Buzzman72...void where prohibited, your mileage may vary, objects in mirror may be closer than they appear, and alcohol may intensify any side effects.

Back on topic,
Correct me if wrong, but I don't see a filter in the parts list and have never seen one on a first rebuild.
By design, filters are a maintenance part that require changing. This one would be difficult, to say the least to change.
IF you do rigorous oil changes I see no problems with a filter (not getting into filter medium type) like this getting clogged.
IF this was a neglected driver with many miles, this filter could potentially be a problem. Clogged with carbon deposits from ring blow by and/or oxidized oil deposits.
I remove them if I find one.
A baffle with no filter works, my experience.
Oil vapor and lighter particulate go through the PCV, through the intake, and discharged with combustion gasses.
What exactly is the problem with the original design on a well maintained engine?
Or the other way of looking at this, what are we trying to fix?
Does this filter increase measurable performance?
Just curious on the facts/experience please.

After thinking about the original posters question and reading through the 9 pages I have come to the conclusion that if I needed a filter I would use a sintered bronze plate. I think this might be the best overall material to use. http://amespore.com/en/find-out-your-amespore-filter/bronze-plate-filters/
