well i joined here about 2 weeks ago, so i fiquered it was about time to discuss something. again, 2 week member, so if this was posted/addressed don`t yell at me. i would really like to put my M/T valve covers on, but i keep sucking oil out of the PCV, blowing smoke out back. i saw a small block chevy with the PCV in the dead space in front of the dist., in the intake. started thinking of this. well, Pace Performance, makes a "RETRO" engine. no breathers in the early corvette valve covers, just the breather in the front oil filler tube. so i write them, they write back, they do this with the PCV, but they use the "baffled" grommet. so i call my buddy up. he has a 400 pontiac, the PCV is in the vally pan, under the intake. "pull the PCV out and tell me what you see? " he did, and all he saw was the CAM ! so, this must work! anyone ever hear about this? comments? thanx for your time!!
