TheRedBlur said:if you had a pcv and an air inlet on the same valvecover, then air would only cycle through that particular side of the engine. I figure it'd be best to maintain the stock pcv along with another pcv on the driver valvecover, with the air inlet on the passenger side valvecover. That way, the vapors would have to travel across the crankcase to get pulled into the manifold.
TheRedBlur said:what intakes, rockers, and heads do you guys have?
The Punisher said:Do you know if those valve covers would work on a stock intake with a 3/8" spacer? What about this - run valve covers that have grommets in both, install pcv valves in both, T them together, then run a line from the T, to the upper intake manifold on the opposite side of where the factory pcv goes, plus leave the factory pcv setup in place? Could anythind bad happen?
vristang said:That is an interesting idea.
It would help us to understand if the problem has to do with the PCV being mounted in the lifter valley.
If you try this out, please post the results here.
I would love to hear how it goes.
$uperstang said:Well guys got my car back from the body shop after the Storman Norman Hood install, Looks KILLER! And finally for the GREAT NEWS. I relocated my PCV valve to my driver side valve cover and ran the hose from the valve under my intake through the oil seperator (in-line) and to the intake. Stock location PCV valve in the lower intake is now plugged. Still have the TB tube for fresh air connected to my pass side valve cover.
NO MORE OIL!!!!!
Thank GOD this worked for me!!!
vristang said:I am glad that this has reduced the oil in your intake.
I am curious how well this allows the crankcase gasses to vent though.
My concern is that this setup will not force fresh air to flow through the crankcase, which will lead to increased oil degradation/contamination.
I am not sure how to check for crankcase air flow though. I think the only way to find if this is an issue or not would be to have a before and after oil analysis done.
More random thoughts from...
There is nothing to be concerned about. The fresh air is forced to flow through the crankcase by means of the TB tube connected to the Pass side valve cover like the stock set-up. The only thing I did was re-locate the PCV to the driver side valve cover. This allows for the crankcase to be vented same as the stock location at the rear just that now it is vented at the front of the crankcase rather than at the back of the crankcase. It's the same thing and even more effective than a breather as the intake vacuum that is created pulls the gasses out like the stock set-up.
