OK, there are like 50 different ways to do this, and all the threads are pretty old, so I'd like some new ideas, if possible. I actually have 2 questions. My first: I plan to make a new intake pipe to replace the rubber tube, and was wondering if not plumbing the line back to the inake pipe after the catch can would hurt anything. for example, have the hose come off the rocker cover to the catch can and thats it, or must it go back to the intake? Second, if I did that, I could block off the pcv and the crankcase would just vent to the catch can, right? Would this create an oily mess in my engine bay? I'm sure this has been covered before, but I just needed to ask in my own words. Thanks for any help.
