1.8TFSI PCV Upgrade

Hi, I’ve seen the PCV blanking plate “delete” for the 2.0TFSI but was wondering if there is a similar mod for the 1.8TFSI?

The reason I ask is that recently I had the rear crank seal replaced as it was leaking and causing a miss and I understand that a faulty PCV can blow seals etc. I’m not saying that it wasn’t wear and tear but I want to either replace the PCV or hopefully upgrade the weak part.

Any advise and help please, cheers!

There are 1.8tfsi blanking plates availeble , i’ve had one from Forge for a couple off months in combination with a catch can,but imo. It doesnt do a whole lot of ‘good’.

I had to drain the can every 5k or so Km but it kept leaking at the blanking plate gasket,

What i did was replace the whole pcv (afrika plate) with a new ‘updated’ oem piece and had my intake wallnut blasted, thats what i thought was the best option.

Good luck with your pcv mate
