I got bored at home and just wanted to do something to the car so I decided to open up my old adjustable fuel pressure regulator and make it all open inside then 're seal it connect all the hoses back up to it and it is sealed properly as I can hear the air from the pcv valve but would it catch oil?

lots of oil isnt good , means you have blowby , and having it that small , you would need to empty it everyday . = waste of time .

Which one is it?
Can you adjust the pressure of your blowby by adjusting the regulator?
