      +2 to what Marcus and BR_377 said. Hawk HPS and HP+ are simply not adequate for an advanced Track Day driver or experienced Road Racer, IMHO.

      It's a another type of " PCV valve " as explained above, commonly referred to as the " Hockey Puck". It vents the crankcase when under Boost conditions as explained in previous posts.

      All Glycol based brake fluids, DOT 3, 4, and 5.1, are hygroscopic. IE: They will absorb water to a certain extent. That's why they list Wet and Dry boiling points. ATE is no different. It still...

      They're kinda.... Meh. For the speeds that you are reaching on your Track Days I would go for a dedicated Racing pad such as PFC's. BP20's are fine for Autocross and " some " Hillclimbs on a light...

      The NA ones have a floating diaphragm, but it is spring loaded to the neutral point. It seals right away if you blow through it to simulate boost.

      Have to think about second question about PCV's with AN fittings. Off hand I'd say the answer is no. But give me a few hours.... I've got a thought, but I'm gotta run right now.
