    " Negative Effects of your Stock PCV System: Many Corvette, Camaro, Firebird and GTO owners with LSX engines can testify to the amount of oil residue that can accumulate inside the intake manifold, throttle body, intake track and even the air filter during aggressive driving conditions.

    There are various negative effects when excess oil vapor contaminates the intake system from the stock PCV system - such as: * Throttle body and/or MAFS (Mass Air Flow Sensor) malfunction or failure. * Air filter, intercooler (if equipped) and intake ducting contamination if oil pools and run back out the intake system after engine shutdown. * Reduced octane of the air/fuel mixture, which can cause detonation and the ECM (Engine Control Module) to retard timing, thereby reducing engine power. *Excessive carbon build-up on valves, piston crowns, combustion chambers and spark plugs. This also increases the chance of detonation and power loss. * Increased emissions & possible contamination of catalytic converters and oxygen sensors. * Bottom line: Excessive amounts of oil vapor in the intake manifold is" detrimental to your engine!"

    Just emptied mine today. Went about 1,500 miles, 20 passes at the track and a few dyno pulls. Had a little less then an ounce of oil in it.

    I found this out the hard way. Seems like all my life's lessons come that way. I like to say I have the luck of the dead. Tengo el suerte de los muertos.
