There are 3 ways to do it, if you want to get technical....or 4 for you.

One could add a small electric vacuum pump to the system which would pull vacuum on the crankcase without adding it back into the intake. But this can get messy/complicated for a street car.

Of the 4th way, for you, could be to connected it to a mask to wear over your face and suck in the fumes manually. Your boyfriend will appreciate your newfound lung capacity and ability to create a low pressure sensation deep within his *****. Not to mention the chemicals might put some sense back in your head.

BTW...being a smartass is better than being a dumbass.

Okay ladies come down. I just opened the engine, both camshafts seals seam to be leaking and there is a puddle of oil on the main front seal. See pictures

Passenger



Driver



Main front








On another note, Min the reason why I don't bang that anymore is because I upgraded big time




I'm going to install the seals now
