    Default Valve covers

    Can the L76 valve covers be switched to non baffled valve covers after the full DOD delete is done?

    You'll most likely get crazy blowby if you don't have a reducing orifice on the pcv line. I don't know if that's what you're asking.

    In the port at the back of the drivers valve cover there is a reduction to keep the flow down, plus the baffles on each side covering the ports.
