PCV mod questions
id like to eliminate my PCV system (from my intake) so i can keep my intake clean and also reduce the small vac leaks i have. iv tested this with both parts of the intake plugged and my fuel trim numbers are lower and seems to run nicer too. however i do want to make sure i have a good enough pcv system. anyone done any mods that might be worth checking out.?"i dont think you got the picture. i got a beautiful picture. this baby happens to have an extra turn of speed, which is the only thing i care about. you dont understnad what happens do you? they make cars. they make 'em exactly the same way. one or two of 'em turn out to be something special. nobody knows why. i know why. i may be kiddin' myself, but i think i can make somethin' out of that sad little bucket of bolts." ~ Tennessee Steinmetz

the crankcase would require a breather so vapors can be vented . you cannot plug up the PCV /crankcase. the vapor pressure must not be allowed to build up as this will blow out the gaskets/oil seals etc...
doing this would be an emission violation. also I doubt it will cause any improvement in engine operation/MPG. if you did find an improvement then the PCV is worn out or the hoses are with leaks ..

iv got vaccume leaks at the dipstic, distributor gasket and possibly the back of the intake. i know how the system works and everything i just wasnt sure if somone has removed it from the intake system before or not.

the PCV system also recycles any vapor/exhaust/blow-by that you may get through your valves or piston rings.... helping your oil do it job better.
if you want to reduce vacuum leaks in the PCV system, get new fresh rubber fittings and new PCV valves. it will save you WAY more time, money, and frustration than trying to delete stuff....
and the engine will be happier too =)Gas was $1.83 when Obama took office.....
