The quickest 3800'* in the world don't mess with the PCV.
your telling me they dont mess with the PCV? the quickest have it blocked from the manifold and either mount them in the valve covers or use a check valve to keep the system running right under high boost levels, FACT and then youre going to tell me a oil soacked upper and lower intake is more efficent than a clean smooth aluminum and plastic?
And they do that primarily because they run intercoolers which inadvertently block the PCV.
And the valve cover breather is strictly cosmetic unless you've lost your PCV through
If you have that much oil soaking in your upper and lower intake, you have compression
Take a good look at the Top 25 Bonnevilles in north america on the list. Only 3 have no PCV.
Those are the 3 that are intercooled (going by memory here, it might be 4 now).
