If there is a bad cylinder I'm getting a DD and storing the car until after college.

You might want to do that even if there isn't a bad cylinder vs having tools from college **** with your car.

Ok so I really want to get rid of some of the stuff in the engine bay. I'll run each idea by you guys. I'm in no hurry to do any of this. Just thought it would be nice to clean it up a bit.

First. I was looking at this hose. It looks like all it's doing is connecting from the valve cover to the intake for ventilation. Im thinking I should be able to pull the hose, plug both ends and then swap the cap for a breather

Yes.
But are they tryin' to catch you ridin' dirty?


I've noticed, the last couple of times that we've been driving, that everyone is looking at your car. I could put pink polka dots on mine and nobody would give it a second glance...

Me thinks that if you do it that way, you will be causing a giant vacuum leak of un-metered air.
If you want to add a breather you will have to eliminate the PCV system altogether and block off the vacuum source for the PCV valve.

Hmmm. You put the filter at the intake. I wasn't thinking of that. More like the breather at the crankcase like a lot of 4vs have

Did you remove the PCV valve and use two breathers?

I see that breather on the CAI now. I don't see how that could work without sucking in un-metered air after the MAF.

It's no different than sucking in unmetered air from the valve cover!.. Difference being now, is that I'm not also sucking in small oil particles and what not too!..

Deleting the PCV... that's something I'm going to be doing. And running a catch can.

It is different!
The PCV system is like a "closed loop". It draws metered air from the air intake into the drivers side valve cover, through the engine, out the passenger side valve cover, and then into the intake manifold, to mix with the rest of the air, and finally, into the combustion chambers.The computer is actually taking into account the air that runs through the PCV system.

Well you were the one who brought up deleting that tubing haha.


I have half a mind to get orders out to Travis AFB by San Fran and keep my NJ registration just so I can roll into you guys' Mustang events with the most illegal **** possible done to my emissions system and longtubes and a NJ sticker lol.

2001 Bullitt Build Thread

I don't understand why you would want to delete the pcv system it's there for a reason. It relieves pressure from the crankcase. That thing gets hot and lots of pressure builds up there. And it takes blowby and throws it back into the Intake so your engine can properly burn it off. I don't understand how deleting it can help you at all

That's what the breathers are for. Pressure can't build up if the VCs are open to air. I'm deleting it because I'm going with a blow thru setup for this supercharger. You DO NOT want positive pressure in the crankcase EVER.

The stock PCV valve is **** and will not hold back boost very well at all, even the "boosted" cars like the Super Coupe had sketchy ones from the factory at best. Don't believe me, put a Mityvac on one and see what happens.

I've seen some elaborate *** systems with aftermarket check valves and whatever... but those can fail too. MUCH easier to just delete the PCV, keep all that **** out of your intake and the catch can eliminates the oily smell that can occur without one. Catch can is also mandatory to pass tech at many tracks.


But for even someone just NA... it gets rid of oily crap air going into your intake and sludging it up. Deleting the PCV system REALLY helps out 96-98 Cobra guys btw. No fuel mixing with the air in those secondary ports plus oily air from the PCV coming in=crudded up secondaries that they almost universally suffer from.


That's just one example.

The looks part I don't really care too much about. I just want to get **** out of the engine bay. It's a complete mess and it all gets in the way whenever I want to work on it. I would have to pretty much unplug all those hoses to even take off a valve cover.

I do want to try to fix the valve seals. But never having done any engine work before those wires are discouraging since they are all up in everything lol. A cleaner look and easier to work on engine bay would be sweet. My friend had a detailed wire tuck manual specific to 4.6 motors that he is emailing me. I don't need to go crazy or all at the same time. But clearing it up little by little would be nice.

Ok and also for this thing. I noticed it is only on the driver side and all it does is have those wires in them. But they are already in tubing and protected..... Votes on taking it out? (It does get in the way at times)

Scotty's situation is different than us NA guys, but I think that having some vacuum in the crankcase can be beneficial. On big race motors, they often run an external vacuum pump.
I'm going to leave my PCV system intact but I'm definitely installing catch cans on all of my vehicles.

Yea I'm getting way too much oil in the combustion chamber. Granted most of it is the valve seals going bad, but breathers or catch cans should help some.

Oh, and I found which wheel is rubbing the inner suspension, and narrowed it down to 3 areas. I'll post a video link once it's to YouTube.

Is it a front end alignment issue? Are you running 9" wheels up front? I have 17x9's with 275's up front. Mine doesn't touch anywhere, but I'm not near as low as you. I've heard that guys with bags have had to make alterations to the suspension to keep the wheel from touching up front. None of those guys track their cars, so maybe yours is only touching when your really getting it on the track. Hopefully you can tell better when you get the wheel off.
