    I bought different valve covers and need a different breather/PCV set-up.

    Anybody using the breather style PVC? Do they work as well or worse than a regluar PCV valve?

    I have what looks like a breather with a nipple sticking off the side for a vacuum hose. It takes a regular PCV valve inside it and therefore works the same. I have a matching breather on the other valve cover.

    I think they were just cheap chrome ones from Spectre.
    I got them at Auto Zone 3 years ago so I could fire the engine. I had planned on getting more expensive billet ones but they work fine and now I don't think I'm going to change them.
