I dig the exhaust slash kit idea, it'll be interesting to see how well it works.

projekteg- you should hook up a vacuum gauge to see how much the system "sucks"

Here's another thought i had, I don't know if the logic is right, but we'll see what you think.

PCV system wants to vent the crankcase- so under vaccum, the system is being "sucked" by the IM manifold. If you run boost (which you should), the stock system would close the pressure could build up in the crankcase = bad.

Basically, we want to be able to apply vacuum to the crankcase both under boost and under vacuum. Right?

If you run one of these (a vacuum reservoir designed for race cam muscle cars to help with power brakes)
between the PCV valve and the crank case, (with a catch can in-between) you could potentially have vacuum at all times without the exhaust tube. I kinda like this idea better than the exhaust idea since if you end up getting oil sucked into the exhaust, it'll likely burn off and produce the scary blue smoke, in which case you may not be certain where it was from (blowby, stem seals, turbo seals, etc). I'd like to try and avoid any smoke coming from my exhaust.

Now can someone Draw a neat diagram of the install on a piece of MS paint paper and explain it, I get about half of what you told me, and the rest I have no clue...I'm a visiual person, and your pictures are sketchy to me...please and thanks.

I saw this in another toppic on this forrum (don't rmember witch one), why not put your vacum line to the intake before the turbo? it will create the necesary vacum if hooked up whith a 90 degree elbo facing the turbo and the catch can will do the oil separation part. Also if you are not using the stock check valve then you can connect your hose right to the oil pan under the intake (to save you a connection to the stock hose and make it look neater).

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.

So any word on the kit yet?

Ever wonder what that buzzing noise was coming from inside a Pro Stocker before they fired up? It's a Pro Stock secret... at least until we told everybody! That noise is coming from an electric vacuum pump. It's purpose is to evacuate the engine cases of unwanted pressures and make the piston rings seal better. The result is my favorite thing... HORSEPOWER! Well... almost my favorite thing.
Features:
Oil-less operation
Permanently lubricated bearings
Built-in cooling fan for constant use
Convenient mounting tabs
Closed housing and motor
Stainless valves and aluminum valve plate
Die cast aluminum head and diaphragm hold down plate
Balanced for smooth, low vibration operation
Long-life diaphragmHelps prevents oil leaks

Cheap money... easy installation... increased horsepower...

nice man ... but let me say whay one of the two ways WILL NOT work !

- so when you're under boost, the PCV valve will close and the system will provide vacuum from the tee line (going to the turbo inlet) - that's OK
- but when you're not under boost, the PCV vavlve will open and the vacuum will become available through the intake manifold ... BUT it will not suck through the catch can, it will suck fresh air from the firlter instead because it's gonna be a lot easier ...

solution: put one-way valve on the tee line as well

thats been discussed already, read the whole thread.

personally I am not running this setup anymore anyways. I just open vented the valve cover and crankcase to a catchcan.

I see what you're saying. You think that the open hose in vacuum will take away from the suction to the crankcase? I guess that could be considered an issue. Like you said tho, another checkvalve or pcv valve flipped the other direction would cure that.
damn I did read couple posts but not all of them ....
OK, my idea was the same
why did you change that system anyways, it seems to be functional ?

mostly because i didnt like seeing all that hose all over the engine bay.

that and i was too lazy to buy the second pcv valve for the other line, and without a turbo inlet pipe i cant really give that second line a good vacuum source.
