Pcv delete or not?
« on: January 27, 2017, 09:37:10 pm »
Hi as previously mentioned I'm no mechanic but am interested in pcv delete, I'm not sure what it does or understand what is does, but does it make any difference to performance or will it help the engine. 
Basically if it's beneficial I'll buy one?

Only on a highly tuned car.

I just run the OEM Factory Revision R, No problems at 320BHP  :happy2:

OK cool, mine is 331bhp 450nm so I guess I'll be OK with the R version.
Thank you

Stick with OEM unless you want to go down the full PCV delete vent to atmosphere setup. Do not buy one of the half arsed attempts from the likes of Forge and so on. They cause more harm than good

Got anything to back up that claim about Forge items? Run one of them myself and not had any issues so far but always interested to read up on things like this!

Do you mean the multitude of posts both on this forum, Facebook and so on, complaining of burning oil/exhaust smoke after fitting? Specifically at idle and on over run etc. (Vacuum). It's caused by forcing both crank and cam gas pressure in to the intake pipe via the tiny recess in the back of the plate. The R-Tech kit only channels the cam area pressure through this route via a much larger recess in the plate, whilst the crank case pressure is vented elsewhere.

I knew the R-Tech kit was the only one people recommend, but not really studied the Forge unit in particular. Seen a lot of discussion about the fact most catch cans don't actually catch oil or much other than water. Not seen any evidence of smoke on my car since fitting it but shall certainly monitor things.

I have the Forge oil catch can PCV delete kit. I haven't noticed smoke so far. It catches a kind of mayonnaise-like liquid.
