    PCV? like EGR?

    G'day, Have been thinking lately about my old VK, it had EGR on it and we disabled the system with balbearings. I believe that the PCV is much the same principal, are there any advantages from disabling this system on a buick 3800? Are they're any other little tips or tricks such as...
