    Pressure will follow the path of least resistance and a flow director does not exist in the clean side path to prevent reverse flow. The clean side can catches oil from clean side reversion that would normally be routed into the intake plenum. Many blame just the dirty side for carry over oil contamination, but the clean side will contaminate the intake just like the dirty side.
    Thanks for the info. Fortunately most LS1s don't have the clean side problem but I understand the theory and concept - thanks!

    LS1's are notorious for clean side reversion. 2004 and later models are particularly problematic because of the switch to a fixed orifice PCV valve.

    Why do you think LS's are immune to clean side reversion? Do you participate in HPDE's?
