    LS6 valley cover in pics

    I got the valley cover to eliminate the crappy stock PCV setup.....little did I know how crappy it was and how urgently I needed to get this done....my idle has always been a bit wonky.....everything I would do and could do to make it better helped......plugs.....wires......fuel filter etc........etc......did help....but it was never THE solution......lately my idle has gone off the the deep wonky end......and it was never the same.....idle good for 1 min.....shake like a wino needing a bottle the next......and visa versa I could not help but think vacuum leak....but where? I got the valley cover and have put off the install for awhile .....finally got around to it.....and just as I suspected the stock PCV had completely crapped out.....and I know if mine did ......and unless you changed yours out........yours has too....this damm rubber is 10 yrs old people.....its mush.....change it out or get a LS6 cover....you will thank me later.....I used the write up on LS1 how to . com as a guide.......but it fell waaaaay short in some areas.....follow along
