Would positive crankcase pressure from a failed pcv not cause the oil pressure gauge to be affected? Also, the valve that I just bought is the GTX one and it fits perfectly.

How is the gauge "going crazy", what is it doing?

Its not anymore, It did right when the smoke initially started coming out. The needle went back and forth violently. The engine was not shaking or making any strange noises at the time though. Thats why I'm asking if the positive pressure in the crankcase from a failed pcv could affect the pressure in the oil system. I think it would.

Ping can cause it to freak out (carbon pulses and what-not), so id assume other condtions might do the same. maybe search on it.

its it ok now?

I'll trade you manifold, dp, and turbos. (doesn't help you much)


what happens when you run with no pcv line?

ok, well I went to unhook the pcv and I accidentally broke the ******* plastic tube. So now I have to order that from somewhere. But anyways, when I start the car without the tube connected the car just revs out to 5k since there is no throttle plate blocking it. I think I'm just gonna sell off the turbo parts to build the 2.2L FE3 stroker and turbo that later in the year with a Borg Warner S256. That will be a monster 400+whp with boost still kicking in low. I'll make a decision in a couple of days.
