Default Any advantage of crankcase air filter

Was wondering if it would help any to switch from the hose coming of the valve cover. going to the intake, and just replacing it with a small air filter.

I know the older cars/trucks use to do this.

I would probably run better since your engine won't be sucking in all that oil vapor. I think the PCV is just an emissions thing.
