Smile LS6 PCV Conversion Kit

Hello, My 2000 SS Camaro since it was new had a oil consumption issue, or oil being sucked into the throttle body through the PCV system. I modified the PCV system with the inline addition of a Greddy oil catch tank. Worked great, I caught all kind of oil, water, grunge, etc. At around 190,000 miles the stock engine had a problem and I had the engine rebuilt, from a 350 to 434 CC inches, 438 HP and 454 pounds of torque at the rear wheels. I had to keep the cam mild to pass California smog required testing. The oil catch tank apparently is doing nothing to prevent the oil through the PCV system, now.

LS6 PCV Conversion Kit, on Thuinder Racing web site looks interesting, is there any available reading material available, and has any one had this issue and solved it with this LS6 PCV mod?

If I disconnect and plug the PCV system and measure with vacuum gauge I see 52 pounds per inch on the side of the throttle body where the PCV system connects at idle. Does any one think this mod will address my problem? I still see the PCV valve with the oil catch tank installed getting wet from engine oil.

Thanks, Whip.....

Unhappy Re: LS6 PCV Conversion Kit

Hi, I did a bunch of reading on whats on this site, it looks like most people have put in the breather on the oil filler cap. That seems reasonable but isn't it pretty smelly when you run the car or isn't it too bad?????

Re: LS6 PCV Conversion Kit

I did an LS6 valley cover conversion/install on my 02 SS
I used the GM part..looks pretty much like the thunder kit

Oil consumption was definitely less than the stock LS1 setup..

I am running a breather on my passenger smellyness
