Hello, I put a procharger on my '90 and now I am blowing the pcv valve out of the engine. I put a oil breather on thinking it would help but so far, no. I am pushing 12# of boost on the procharger. Any ideas on how to keep it from coming out when I stand on it? It only comes out when I am REALLY jumpin on it. I know the obvious...stay off of it, but I bought it FOR THAT REASON! Thanks in advance!

Well, what kind of condition are the piston rings and valve guides in? If you just threw a supercharger with 12 pounds of boost on a high-mileage motor, yeah, it's gonna have some issues from the internals being worn.

the motor and car only has 70,000 on it, and had never been beat on by the original and previous owner. I can't see the guts being too bad off, but looking wouldn't hurt either.
thanks. I will also check the rubber.

When you installed the SC, did you remove the hose running between the Throttle Body and the Filler Neck on the passenger side valve cover???????

Good suggestion. If he left the connection between a high pressure area and the engine internals, he will have full boost inside the crankcase, valve covers, and lifter galley. That can be bad news for seals with more than a few pounds boost. Vent it all to the outside, don't use positive crankcase ventilation unless you aren't running much boost.
