      Since I have a bunch of cracked breather hoses and such, I replaced them with rubber hoses. Is there anyway to delete the whole PCV systme? I hear about this with different models of VWs. but not sure how to actually do it. In Wisconsin where I live I dont have to go through E-Mission so thats not going to be a problem. Any ideas, Dyi, or each things I would need would be great.

      You want a certain amount of positive crankcase ventilation to be going on. This is done not just for emissions, but to ventilate harmful vapors out of the engine. The 1.8t is sludge-prone to begin with.

      People do it all the time. They don't understand everything the system does for the engine and they know it's an emissions related system so they figure they must be better off without it. They cut & cap everything and the engine still runs so they figure they've done good.

      LOL, I know that Kenosha (where I lived before) had E-missions but now they are getting rid of it for some reason.

      Also I have V6, so I dont think it has the slug problem, but other then capping it completly off you can put mini cone filters on it. Would this still be somthing that can work. I mean, I dont want to pay 100 and some bucks to replace the hoses that are already cracked and broken, acouple local vw and audi owners I know told me to just delete it.

      None atm. My engine bay is a little bit of a mess. I'm in the process of redoing my boost piping since I'm going non-intercooler, running a large 225cc Water/Meth Nozzle after the turbocharger. That and redo of my vacuum & coolant system. Though I might make a thread just for that.
