    The great thing about all this is the roll of enthusiasts to solve the problem, which then led to GM themselves altering the design in line with the enthusiasts solution.

    Yeah I think everyone should do this.

    I have done this ages ago and also installed a catch can at same time. Ther at a later date, I also installed a clean side separator.

    There's definitely been improvment with idle and acceleration

    Both the catch can and clean side separator were from Elite engineering USA

    No, because the part is the whole valve/cam cover. The PCV comes free with it. $$$

    The updated PCV will be identical to the modification done in this thread, so just do it yourself.

    Someone should pick up a couple of old PCV valves, modify and offer them for a cheap price on an exchange basis for those who'd rather not modify it themselves.

    Ok after reading this i managed to take it out and clean it . Wasn't too bad , had a bit of a build up of crap around the smaller hole . Drilled them both out and soaked it in throttle body cleaner then used a magnet to remove and swarf . Haven't had a chance to go for a drive yet . Her indoors wants a hand in the garden

    The VZ continues to run better and better. It’s lovely to drive. Smooth as.
    I know every little vibration and noise in this car and am loving the change.
