PCV valve side
#1
I am reworking the looks of my engine to have a Ford Motorsports PCV breather filter and the standard PCV valve connected to the manifold vacuum. I like the looks of this breather so I want to place it on the driver's side bank valve cover at the front, which then I have to place the PCV valve on the passenger's side bank at the rear. I can't see any problems on reversing the PCV flow of the engine but I thought I will ask the experts in this site. I think it looks cleaner this way because the PCV vacuum will have a shorter run from the rear of the passenger side bank to the base of the EFI unit, which is facing towards the rear of the engine.

Cool. That's the look I am after. My valve covers look similar to yours but they end up being horizontal at the top. They are Ford Performance.

I like the valve covers you have. I have a set in the garage but the baffle around the oil fill would not clear my roller rockers so I had to go with a tall set.

This is with my valve covers. I had to hammer the baffle slightly to remove interference with the roller rocker.

That’s how I had mine set up before I was able to locate an original air cleaner housing. Worked with no problems.
