gt cooling mod and what to do about my emmisions tubes?????????????

Postby SullivanRacing06 » Sun May 11, 2008 9:50 am

i was searching around on other rb sites and i heard a cooling mod that allows more water to go to the rear of the motor, seeing if anyone has pics or info or a link to a web site with info. and another thing i removed the stock breather tubes and welded a -10an bung on the stock outlet location on the valve covers, i removed the pcv, currently the two tubes ontop of the valve covers run thru a catch can n then to the greddy suction pipe, i hate it because under boost it will pull oil thru and fill the catch can up, is it safe to remove the hose running from the catch can to the suction pipe n put a breather on the outlet of the catch can? or do i need to keep some sort of crankcase vacume?

I hope your planning to run a single throttle body while doing the gt cooling mod. As well, I'll find all the info I have gathered on the setup and compile it into a post when I get the chance.

With the crankcase ventilation, having a lot of blow by, you might wanna stick some steal wool into the bottom of the catchcan to prevent the oil from getting sucked out.

There are various ways to set it up, they've been argued and discusses numerious of times.

when i had my valve cover modified for the turbo, i took apart the inside of the valve cover and cleaned that screen and added some steel wool, so would it be safe to run both of the valve cover vents to a catch can then just vent the outlet on the catch can, my motor has little to no blow by when at idle just under high boost is when itll spit oil

First, I wouldn't recommend running steal wool in the valve covers, can't stomach the idea of that stuff falling apart in the engine. Seperated in a catch can is alot better IMO.

In order to do the cooling mod you must delete the balance tube on the intake manifold and this distributes air, water, etc. between all the throttle body banks. By eliminating the ITB's and going single TB you will have no need for a balance tube since all runners will be supplied by one TB.

You can modify your ITB's and delete them, and weld on a single TB flange to the inlet to the Greddy Manifold to mount a single TB. If you are heart set at running the cooling mod.

Question for you though, why are you heart set to do this? Whats the application for this setup and what kind of build is the motor going through?

Then you'll be incuring alot more fabrication then it's worth to maintain them with that mod. There are other ways around this and a less intensive setup would be to bring in a swirl pot.

ah, the valve cover vents. Search "catch can" and simular in this section and you'll find threads on different methods to install and route those hoses.

*But be aware! There are MANY incorrect ways that have been covered, just do your research and you'll find the most optimal way for your setup.

run the vents to the ground... right in front of the rear tires.

seriously though, you can either run them to an open catch can with a breather filter on it, or you can run it to a closed catch can connected back to the intake

Which would be 'better'? I ask because I have a nice Cusco tank (with two nipples), but it is sealed.

Do you just remove the "u" shaped rubber tube that connects the two valve covers, and install this can in it's place, then cap the third nipple on the exhaust side that leads to the intake? .. Maybe I should make a picture..

i removed the pvc (blocked it off) the welded a -12 bung on each valve cover were the factory crank case vent system was, should i loop them together, run that thru a catch can and back into the suction tube b4 my turbo, or loop the two valve cover outlets together , into a catch can then down under the car?
