Default PCV Valve

Sorry if this is a stupid question but does the GXP have a PCV valve? I went to the German dealer here during my last oil change and asked him to replace the PCV valve and he said it didn't have one. Is this correct? If not, can someone tell me where it'* located?

P it has one, there just integrated into the intake castings these days and covered by a thin metal plate ...I'd look for it but got a foot of snow on it and havent been able to drive it up out onto the county road in almost two weeks, and the snow keeps piling on top. which sucks if the nitrous gets here.

Nitrous kit should be here any day and gotta go to friends body shop to put in.
check his site out for ideas, and he'* right here in New York near Binghamton

Well, it'* been snowy, wet, and cold here in Berlin so I haven't looked either. I am curious though. But when a GM dealer (Ok they are an Opel dealer, but they sell American cars with German Specs) tells you it doesn't have one you sort of have to believe them. They work on several Cadillacs here. I'll ask them where the Cadillac'* N* one is. Maybe that would help.
