There is a hose going to thottle body.. Disconnect it seal off throttle body pipe.. Then run this hose to inlet / aircleaner via oil seperater..
The PCV should hold boost ?? But if its suspect ?? Replace with known PCV from blown engine..
A one way valve from V.L Commodor or Nissan around same build date will help ..
It won't hurt to add another breather in rocker cover. One made up from drilling hole in oil filler cap and to air cleaner via oil separater too..
Drilling out the rear breather hole in Fords 6's helps crank case breathing also..
If hose is left connected to throttle body.. You'll boost the crank case, spreding oil everywhere..
Make sure the oil return line is big and unrestrictive r oil will build up and blow through turbo seals..



As in ZOOM 126 edition
