      The 8v's have breathers built into the valve cover. 9a's do not. If you install breather port(s) in the vc you should be able to get away with capping it off. There have been reports of some folks experiencing "siphoning" with this type of arrangement.

      And the reason is the blow by gasses are forced DOWN passt the cylinder and the pulses are in the LOWER side
      When VC PCV port only all that air must go UP thru the oil return hole
      Hence its grabbing liquid oil on the way out

      I plan to run the PCV from the lower plate I made
      UP to a "t" fitting
      Second side of the "T" is from Valve cover
      Then the final out flow from 2 ports is in 1 hose
      From there I plan to run the exhaust scavenge fitting in the post flex exhaust piping

      You really should do this. Bolt back in the seat and seatbelts. Let someone sit and buckle in while you start flipping! That would be awesome!

      Can't wait to see what you do with this. I'm looking at building a car with my boys (11, 12 and 13) to help them understand vehicles and have something when they get their drivers license. This gives me lots of ideas!

      Acid dip is scary

      Plus I read horror stories about it seeping out sometimes years later
      Plus rocker rinsing is sketchy

      Yes BIG pain
      Its about to get farmed out
