PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) is what you want. If you run a straight hose and have a backfire situation you could blow the valve covers right off the engine. I have seen this.

Just follow the top radiator hose to were it clamps onto the engine, That will be the thernostat housing, just remove that housing and it will be right there. You will need to drain engine coolant first. MAKE SURE ENGINE IS COLD. That is if the engine is a 5.7L 350. If it is something other then a 5.7L 350. Then the thermostat will be were the lower radiator hose clamps onto the engine, That will be the thermostat housing, remove it. If it is a V6 engine then it will be at the end of the top hose, just like the 350 engine.
