you pushing the direction of the arrow correct? you have a pic of yours? you got it with the viton seal correct? just covering any bases... just checking the simple things since there is not much to them. trying to figure out why your using vice grips and a socket wrench... to push the piston... to take it apart and check it?

Yea nevermind the vice grips. Yup, pushing the direction of the arrow. I dont think I got a seal with mine, was the seal seperate from the valve when it arrived? Yea i posted a pic of mine on page 4

yeah, something is not right there... i hope you hear from them fast and get it sorted out. not a cheap check valve at all... as far as i saw. all of mine were a-ok... good news is plenty of time to get a new one. they ship really fast which is excellent.

Anyhow, the line from the catch can to the turbine inlet would see the same vacuum as the PCV inlet, it would have to go to the manifold. And the inlet would act as an exit for blow-by under boost, but there would be no fresh air supply. But you did give me a brainstorm:

Most PCV valves I've seen use a grommet to hold itself in a specifically shaped hole, similar to our IATS. By drilling for 2 PCV valves and running one to the turbo inlet and one to the manifold, then puttung a breather on the stock inlet and running the LSJ gasket, full PCV function would be acheived even under boost. Now the problem arises, needing 2 catch cans and the possibility of failure of the valves.

I want to know, on the Eco, of what importance is the positioning of the PCV in the head, it seems that tapping the valvecover would suck out alot of fresh air because the inlet is so close. I have a spare head somewhere, if I find it I'll blow some smoke through it and find out where it pulls from the crankcase. Unless PJ could do it for me, so I don't have to dig through storage.



Listen F***ers. FASTERTHANAHONDA is a joke because I WORK FOR HONDA. I'll talk @!#$ about Fords to, that doesn't mean I can beat a 12 second mustang.

After reading all this i haven't even drove my cavalier. I dont want to boost anymore untill the pvc works how its supposed to work. So i been pushin all that air in the wrong spots? What happens after awhile? Seals begin to blow?

Alright, almost done, except the line coming from the Check valve.

Would it be ok to tap/T off my wastegate hose coming from my manifold for my check valve to connect to? Meaning it wont hurt the function of the wastegate will it?
