I am curious, does the car need the PVC valve on the valve covers? What is its function?
You can put a breather cap there if no grommet for PVCthank you, does it need to actually be the valve, I have holley valve covers and they put a fitting in the back of one, but its not a pvc
i have found that a PCV valve that is not right can cause to much water to be in the crankcase. so change it once in while. all the acids in your oil are water based. and for every gal of gas you burn almost a gal of water is made.
see there my friends here have tons of great info. i remember when thy started using PCV valves. the only smog part my dad thought was good. cause the engine had a LOT less dirt going in the crankcase.
Another thing to be sure of is baffling in the valve covers at least as good as factory valve covers is mandatory IMO. Without that no matter what you do, PCV or not, is gonna be a mess.
More info please.
Basic baffle to keep the oil away from the openings.
