No problem.

Before I ask questions, I GOOGLE!!! I use it all the time.

I too had some difficulties finding anything about a PCV valve in the FSM. Kinda weird, but that just goes to show even more proof that you really don't have to worry about it for quite some time.

the way i look at it, for the cost of a PCV what maybe $2, with these car having the intake failures issues for me its just reinsurance that pressure wont build up becasue of a bad valve, ive just never seen a PCV setup like what the bonnie has, different for sure

True, but I don't think a faulty PCV would result in a manifold failure... The lower intake manifold is still metal for the L36 isn't it. The UIM doesn't see crankcase pressures...
**EDIT - atleast it doesn't see them where the failures occur.

It'* still good to have this information listed for those wondering where it is and how to replace it.
