      .. so what happened????


      Well let me share my what just happened to me..

      I was about two blocks away when I noticed... something.. like I lost boost.. then when I saw my house.. bam.. car turns off.. I tried turning it on but it turns on for like one second then dies..

      Since that last thing I had installed was this BSH PCV revamp kit.. I have the new one like above.. but I always had about 20PSI since installed ( i have a boost gauge)

      So I had remembered your issue as well... so.. Oh the car was in the middle of the street.. just went to the store too... i guess i got lucky.. I was trying to start the car enough to move it out of the street.. I ended up banging my rear left wheel on the side walk.. I have about 5 inch scrap on the lip now.. yay.

      SO anyways.. I get a rag and shove it in the hole.. car runs fine.. I think that stupid set screw (which was installed) must have backed off.. I am currently talking to the vendor...

      Where is the cap? I don't see it in this photo...

      ... the wheel thing sucks.. but they were cheap enough so I am not to

      But yeah i just confirmed it is the BSH PCV cap.. I had my friend turn the car on.. died..

      THen I put my hand on it and he turned it on.. perfect.. I could feel my skin being sucked in.. then I pulled my hand away.. car turns off.

      I am going to call BSH directly and address this ASAP.. I will let you guys know..

      so, the kits come just hand tightened. I talked to USP about it, and thats what they let me know. I did tighten it without plumbers tape on it and it still leaked a tiny amount. I would recommend putting plumbers tape on it, and resealing it with the screw. I feel like I may be returning my PCV blockoff. this is what a local mod-shop that does a lot of high end work told me:

      Typically lean faults on these cars are caused by problems with the breather system. I'm not having any luck digging up those specific TSBs, any idea what was actually fixed under them? Also, I would strongly recommend against installing a catch can. We have seen numerous issues on cars with both catchcans and PCV blockoff plates installed. These include heavy smoking at idle, rich/lean codes, and very high amounts of water in the crankcase to the point where the valve cover fills with foam and the dipstick rusts! A little bit of white foam on your oil cap is nothing to worry about in these temperatures; the only problem we've seen with the factory PCV valves is that they seem to fail semi-frequently and require replacement (which is either a warranty or a campaign repair item).

      yeah.. I just talked to david on BSH.

      The new versions do have a set screw inside... they are currently still revising their procedure to include this. BSH called all of the people who purchased it but since i got it from USPmotorsport I was not on the list.

      I lost mine.. it fell out lol. I am going to email them so they can give me the thread size so that I Can put something together for now.. but they are making more and should have them by the end of the week.

      As far as the mod itself.. I can NOT go back to stock.. those PCVs will Fail with added boost.. my dealership will NOT replace it unless i throw a CEL for it.. My car felt great after the intial install.

      I have gone back to running stock, less the BSH tap, which i use for the DV. I am running APR stage1 on my car, and am not seeing any issues with it. I just had work done on my car (fixing the whole issue this thread was meant to help with), and have not even bothered to add in the block plate. I feel it is running great!

      Well.. my issue with my oem pcv was all the oil that was covering my engine due to backpressure into the valve cover.. in fact people have said that this has caused seals to be pushed out.. which is maybe why I am leaking oil from my timing belt area..

      yeah I didnt get a reply from BSH.. just waiting on the thread size.. to get something set up for now.
