I am seeing only more overstatements. A clean side oil separator as you call it, may
help just as the vented oil filler caps may
That's all. Very simple. My point is just chill a bit and restore some balance to this whole PCV modification/remedy issue.
Seriously ... just a one example case of anything is not proof it works better
than or is better
than something else.
Overstatements to that effect just result in credibility short coming and reflect reactive over zealous presentation.
The truth is. . . any improvement in the 2.4L PCV path - - - may
- - - help remedy it's shortcomings. But a one off case saying one thing is better
really is an overstatement and just an opinion.
And.... since adding a non OEM device in the clean path is not a factory recommended item it certainly would qualify in most circles as "jerry rigged" as in an added or improvised method of accomplishing some function. And , once again, you take one statement to try and increase credibility.
Nothing wrong with a jerry rigged solution and sorry if that makes offense.
But . . . if you live in a state the requires annual vehicle inspections and they see a non OEM "Oil Separator " with non OEM hoses running to it, the air plenum, etc. . . that looks like a "Fail" there also. When simply changing back to a factory OEM oil cap from the vented one is simple. In fact, if the GM FC219 is installed, not likely to even be noticed.
P.S. As for specifics. . . readers can search and look up all the many PCV threads on this subject and draw their own conclusions and to their own satisfaction. With all the specifics that have been talked about in this and other forums regarding PCV path shortcomings, there are sufficient choices for any reader to follow. Let the reader do their own due diligence.
