It shouldn't matter too much from what I know. I just usually get whatever they offer at the parts store.

I'm saying that I have not heard, here on BC, that our cars are finicky as to the brand of PCV valve.

O2 sensors, spark plugs, wires...all yes..finicky.

Any brand PCV as long as it'* intended for your year/model is good.

A pcv is nothing more than a ball bearing in a tube with smaller ends. Tough to have an incompatible brand when it comes to the PCV. Plugs..wires..etc.. plenty of choices to be had then.
