How do I defunctionalize the PCV system?
Posted 21 April 2005 - 12:23 PM
Now, can I just plug the hole in the intake hose and attach one of those miniature air filters onto the valve cover? Or is there other work required?
Is there possibly even a way of retaining the system and just finding some oil seperation device that can be spliced in between?

Vent tubes on each rocker cover -> hoses -> T fitting -> single hose out of T fitting to breather/filter. Tucked the breahter down low where air drafts over it.
Removed PCV valve from intake manifold and replaced with properly sized and thread pitch bolt from my spare Subaru bolt box. Plugged extra holes in main SPFI snorkel with more spare bolts and tightend the seal with clamps. All hoses are fited with screw down clamps.
You could also setup a water/oil seperater canister in line and leave it all hooked up like it should be. However you'll be emptying that canister often!

I am still perfecting a self-maintaining oil separator that I should have for sale this summer. You should also replace your PCV valve with a new OEM one. Aftermarket valves just don't work as well.
