    Meh... He's snowed in. No new pics till he thaws. lol

    I think I liked it better in AK. You know what they say though... The two best places you'll ever be are the one that you're on your way to or the one you have just left. :shrug:

    Found out today while going over everything in my car, that I believe I have blow by from my pcv system, it still works but I do believe its just not enough. So Im gonna plug the pcv in the back and run an lines from the vc's to a catch can. My question to the great forum that this is, and after much searching all this morning is does anyone know of valve covers that have AN fittings welded on already? I looked but everywhere I look is just blank valve covers. @RacEoHolic330 @Noobz347

    Ummm... I don't know of any that come setup the way that you want them. I've always seen dudes just cut the whole and make them.

    There are a few places that make them but charge ungodly prices. I used the baffled fitting from jegs and drilled a hole in each vc. The baffled fitting install like a bulkhead fitting

    I plugged it with a expandable rubber plug from the local auto parts store. Kind of like a plumbing fitting where you tighten the nut and the rubber expands filling the hole

    Sweet did you keep your system in parallel to the catch can or did you use a y block and go bigger on the outlet?

    If you're plugging that whole, what do you plan to use for your vacuum source?

    Each intake is a bit different. Mine has several extra ports. The large one to the bb comes directly off the back side of the upper intake
