    Erm - no. I still think it's a worthwhile mod though,especially for the minimal outlaw,and safety factor:

    "The PCV opens and vents oil vapour into the the inlet manifold where it's then burnt off in the engine. This is done to control emissions. Used engine oil going back into the engine ain't a good thing.

    If the PCV fails the result can be increased pressure in the manifold resulting the engine oil cap being blown off by the pressure. With this modification all boost is kept in the inlet manifold and fed back into the system rather than the PCV venting boost which can be anything up to 4psi.

    This isn't really approved of as technically you are venting oil vapour into the atmosphere and therefore flouting emissions laws but it's such a tiny amount that yo won't ever be able to tell the difference"

    Thank's the reason im looking into this is that like jonny c said somewhere, sometimes i feel the car is not as responsive as others just at random times it will feel much quicker than others!
