I have recently replaced a stock manifold with an intake that does not have a oil filler tube or the capability to add one. My problem is that my aftermarket valve covers both have baffles. Can oil be added through these holes or does it simply make a mess due to the restriced openings.

Thanks!

On my 327 I opened up the baffle with a screwdriver, so it would take oil faster. I should remove the baffle entirely...maybe someday.
