Yea but as you say it has to be specific sized holes, and as you say many people don't do it correctly, so wouldn't just adding an inline PCV solve any confusion?
dosen t matter how easy we try to make things work people will always stuff up or have there own way of doing things

@Immortality made a thread (or maybe posted in this thread earlier) how you can’t just have a generic PCV. It’s specific to the use. Went on to discuss an NZ(?) company that makes an adjustable PCV. Super interesting stuff.

That would have been a nice bit of Upper Cylinder Lubricant,
That amount would depend if it was City or Highway driving,
Which is not a bad thing to keep the engine running smooth.
Just like a dose of Redex. (old school product) ;)

This is the PCV that @Immortality has posted before.


I’m expecting someone to say that its theory is flawed and that the two engineers got it all wrong. In fact everyone has got it wrong. The person posting will know far more and could potentially change the automotive industry but they can’t be bothered because things.

The guy that showed it to me seems very happy with his. It's in a fairly decent Holden 355 with a good sized cam in it.
