Best to get a new one from Holdens. $80 from memory.

Its the PCV system and is vital and can affect how the engine runs.

Will it do damage? Will it make a difference if it's a mafless tune?

its just so the crank case fumes dont get vented out to the astmosphere as they are harmful to the eniviroment. shouldnt do any damage but if in the unluckly case you get pulled by the epa they might have something to say in the way of a big arse fine.
EDIT: also at WOT it will have oil coming out so if you drive like skaife you will get oil in your engine bay.
