exactly, that's all it needs to be completely functional for venting the crank case in boost and vacuum.

ok so now its being argued that this system won't work because the pcv valve wont hold 100% so it will still see positive pressure in boost. this is being argued over on d-series.org. I say its still more effective than stock, and what they describe more sounds like faulty pcv valves over anything else. I am curious to hear what you guys think.

a stock pcv system just closes shut and the crankcase cant vent at all while in boost, this gives it a bath to ventilate while under boost. lack of crankcase ventilation can cause blow-by and own rings.

it's already been established that 9 out of 10 homo's prefer dseries.org because they're idiots. yes the pcv valve will close completely in boost, just as it does in the stock set up, that's the whole point to have 'breather' systems. here's what you need though, totally do away with all of that system, including the pcv valve all together and run one line from stock pcv location, in to your catch tank, and then going out of the catch tank in to a slash cut on the exhaust, here's the kit for 18 bucks http://www.secureperformanceorder.co...ProductID=5340 the exhaust passing by the slash cut creates a 'vacuum' pull that will be much more effective in venting the crank case, the more boost, the faster the exhaust gases move, the more it pull out of the crank case. same principle as putting it in the intake tube, but with less mess (no oily residue in your turbo) and more vacuum effect than the intake can produce.

ok, so i've got a b series but I think this still applies....

and slap me if i'm being a nube, but....here goes anyway.

1) Does this help with idle problems?
2) The shop that helped me with my turbo told me to just take a drill and basically run it through both ends of the PCV valve to take out the insides of it, and then run a line from the top of it, to a catch can.

setup seems to run fine, except I have an idle problem i've been troubleshooting for a while (surges) but I think that's related to the idle control motor.

alright, that's it. *braces for flames*
