subaru released a TSB for this in 91 or so. They also released a redesigned pcv setup I hear
I think the above is why a lot of people on the board highly suggest using only Subaru PCV valves.

I second the OEM PCV replacement. My Bro-in-laws '86 just started doing the same thing. Told him the same thing.

I will have some extra time Saturday morning to fiddle with it.
I just noticed the title of my thread reads "left turn" I ment my other left. Sorry.

has nothing to do with the PVC location
it's all about the cam cover on the outside of the engine on the turn.
The breather ingests the oil and it is sucked into the intake
manifold - burned - and the plume of smoke is the result.
Maybe you could mimic the fix Subaru came up with
Please be aware if you create excess crankcase pressure
you risk the chance of blowing the cam and other seals out.

I will fart around with it tommorrow. I am not to embarrased when it happens, I just don't want to wreck from laughing so hard at the people behind me.

My car many years ago had a fram unit.. smoked like crazy on right turns.
Changed to a Subaru valve, NO smoke now! No other changes performed on car.

If you have blue fittings in the PCV system I belive that is the way to indicate that you DO have the kit.
