    there's a thread on a "fix" here PCV Valve Recommendation / Housing Modification

    i just bought the whole assembly (tubing, valve, etc.), glad i did because when i took the old tubing out, the part in the rear just about came apart.

    Yes but if your in a fix and you want a cheaper way I can show you a quick fix for under $20. Give me a min or two I just took my pcv off and need to shot a pic I'll post it.

    Here you go. I used a T fitting and a L fitting for vacuum lines that I joined together and made what you see in the pics below. It works, may look Fugly but I assure you it does work. I have used it for the last 5 months. I just did a LS6 Valley tray conversion and installed a catch can to get rid of this PITA issue with the PVC. IMHO the money you would put towards a new PVC hose could be best spent in getting you the LS6 Valley tray and put a good chuck towards a decent catch can and just flat out eliminate this issue.

    I got mine from O'Reillys and I believe vacuum lines are a standard size.

    print the pic off and show it to the guys and they should be able to see what I did.
