Anyone see anything wrong with this? ...

There is no way to "replumb" the PCV system and have it work correctly - you need the small hose to limit the action of the system (or it sucks up lots of oil), and you need the large hoses to flow in the correct direction - that happens in the stock system, but will not if you change it.

When I "Weberized" my EA82, those Hoses where like this:
the Two Head´s Hoses was Connected to a "T", then with another "T" I Connected the P.C.V. hose to Them, and then the Remainin´ Open end, to the Air Filter Box.
So, when I Changed the Oil Pump, the Oil Pressure Reached Higher, and some Oil where Blew from the Head´s Hoses to the P.C.V. Valve... :-\ ... that was a Problem.
So, the Solution that I Wanna Share, is this: To install an independent / Good \ Cheap air Filter just for the P.C.V.
I Searched, and I Found this:
The Vendor said that is Designed for a Dodge (Dakota? ... ...) it is Small, Nice, Metallic, with a Fiber Element (Non Replaceable) inside (Just as the Standard Air Filter´s are) and it has a 5/8" Hose inlet, the Exact Size to match the Subie´s P.C.V. Hose. and it just Cost 80.ºº Lempíras (Our Currency, equivalent to $ 4.ºº US Dollars)
This is how it Looks installed:
This is it Backwards, just to see its Openin´:
(but I Leave it as the Above Picture)
Also, a Li´l Problem Remained: How to do a Better Connection of the Head´s Hoses? ... ´cos the Air Filter Box´s Tiny plastic Plug was just 1/2" ... the Subie´s 5/8" Hoses fit too Loosen... and the Turn wasn´t Helpin´ ... So I Did This Solution:
First, I Purchased some 5/8" Fittin´ and some 1/2" one, and a 90º Turn Coupler:
Then, I Welded ´em Together with Brass:
Then I Cutted 1/3 of the Wide, of a Washer, and I Tighted it to the Air Filter Box´s Base, it is Light Weighted, even if it seems to be Heavy Weighted.
This is Another Perspective:
And this is How the Whole Thing, ended up:
So, Now the Heads are connected with a "T" right to the Air Filter´s Box, now with a Direct 5/8" Plug , and the P.C.V. has an independent Air Filter just for its own... Just similar as the Original Stock subaru Air filter Box was...
My Subie Runs Great and Smooth with that config since 2006, No Problems so Far, and I Use it Very Much in Hard Driving Situations almost every day
I Hope this Ideas can Help.
Best Regards, Good Luck!

I Thought you was Asking about an EA82, because the Thread`s Title...
Posted 01 May 2009 - 06:37 PM
Which is why I asked. I "think" I am sucking oil. Would this correct the problem?

Only if you installed a 1/4" orifice directly after the secondary "PCV" filter. It is the reduction in the tube ID that keeps the PCV working but not sucking so hard that it pulls oil from the valve cover.
You can get the same effect by using some stock PCV couplings that are reduction T's and adding a second elbow from the bottom of the Weber filter that is either a 1/4" ID tubeing fitting (hose barb) or reduces down to 1/4" ID before joining the line going to the PCV valve.
There is no need, nor is it at all desireable to have seperate filters for air and PCV. Makes it difficult to seal the engine up if you want to go with a snorkel at a later time too.

That is a great description of what I was trying work out in my head from post#4. Thanks GD.
I wonder if anyone is currently running it like you describe.
What would a suitable fitting material be? Or what should I avoid?
