    PVC removal?

    Just brainstorming some options to clean the ol engine bay up some more, would it be possible to eliminate the PVC system and just run say a valve cover breather or am i thinking backwards?

    From what I have been told you need to keep it. It keeps the engine internally cleaner. I asked the same question on another forum and got blasted but was told keep it. Some of the pro drag cars actually use some type of air pump to force vent? Have no idea if this is true. what I was told though.

    I think it's best to keep it as well.

    Not sure if you caught it -- I posted this one a few weeks ago and thought that it really helped clean up the look underhood: http://ls1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=131639

    Doesn't it keep oil out of the intake charge? I believe that introduction of oil into the engine reduces the fuel's octane rating. Can't believe it would pull enough in to make a difference... just a thought.

    if you want to clean up your engine bay of the ugly pcv plumbing but keep its function, just convert the system to the ls6 pcv system under neith the valley cover. thats what i did. it works great.

    check out ls1howto.com their is a write up on ls1 to ls6 pcv conversion. basicly you just have to change over the valley cover to the ls6 one. their is an internal pcv system built right into it. all the details are their. check it out

    the ls1 doesnt have it. it is on the ls6. underneith the valley cover their is a ventilator built into it. then a small tube runs from out of the valley cover directlly into the side of the throttle body.

    he was making fun of the typo.
    PVC is plastic plumbing pipe. PCV is the correct term for our cars. get it?
