What about running a hose with a PCV valve over to the intake manifold?

I once thought about using a PCV but decided not to . If I used the PCV it would cause the engine to have to reburn the fumes . I figure burning the fumes would slightly weaken the charge in the combustion chambers and help the spark plugs to stay oily and weaken the spark . Too hell with the fumes , I use a Fumaze !!!

IMO, you will never notice any weakening of the mixture. I have done that for years and never even wondered whether that was happening. It helps with any rear main leak too.

Not to mention sucking all the byproducts from combustion from your crankcase (unburned gas, water and acids). It's a good thing!
