OK .... I followed the advise given and have just finished installing the latest PCV update Kit # 55561200. It may be of interest that the my local GM dealer quoted and sold me this kit for less then I could buy from after market suppliers. I paid a total of $69 and obviously even saved on the shipping. The new set-up is very similar to the original with the only exception being that an additional tube now is spliced to the return line which connects to the body of the oil filler tube. ---- Also I noticed that the oil separator unit has an ultra restrictive metal disk with a small hole in one of the openings -
- I don't want to sound like a block head but I still feel that connecting directly from the valve cover to the metal tube that goes to the top of the turbo would be a much less restrictive and better set-up.
- The best most functional system would obviously be to just install a PCV valve with a hose to the valve cover and vent to the atmosphere -- like the race engines do -- but that would not be a GREEN thing to do.
- I would post photos but how do I do this?
