pvc valve, hose .....

can i remove the hose from the valve cover to the throttle body, and just stick a breather filter on the valve cover. i hate anything that makes it dificult to work on the car. in which case this hose gets in my way when i goto change my injectors.

how often do you change your injectors or have to remove that hose?
doesn't that hose have something to do with equalizing pressure or something like that?
that does a breather filter do? i see a bunch of hondas always have them.
i would like jordan's opinion on this

Yes and yes especially if your engine has high miliage and you have higher back pressure. Had a breather on my valve cover on my turbocharged m20 and it ran fine.

like my honda does? lol

so its alright then, well i put the stock injectors back in because i thought there was somthing wrong with the bigger ones that came installed when i bought the car, i'm now learning that its not the case and that other things were causing the problem ( rail for power was gonna conected properly, and fuel regulator was shot). So, i'm going to put the bigger ones back in but that hose is such a a-hole at trying to get through the intake and inbetween the fuel rail, not to mention it isnt soft, so when i try to hook it up, it feels like its going to break off.

i'd rather just stick a breather on it, i did this to some other cars and didnt seem to bother them. just wanted to check on this one, thanks guys.

PCV means Positive Crankcase Ventilation King and it's activated by the engines vaccum which allows it to extract fumes and to some degree "equalize crank case pressure"

Also note its illegal to remove that hose bcus if you do you are venting fumes into the atmosphere. Its part of the emissions system and you are not allowed to remove any of it legally.

You'll get a ticket if you ever get hassled by the cops and are asked to pop ur hood.

If you are doing this just to make injector replacement dont do it. If you had severe back pressure and you were spraying oil into the PCV, then yes.

Just replace your injectors and reinstall the PCV

Yup could be true, but most cops would not know the difference anyways, like they were asking someone here if the big red cable from the +ive battery was for his NOS.

Not bashing cops nor encouraging lawbreaking, some cops are my friends.

It is part of the emission system and thats the first component they suggest changing if you failed an e test.

yet its legal to let 1/2 the cars out there drive around blowing blue/black, i dont think where i live its going to be a problem. after all my honda has been completely stripped of vacuum, electric and emmeions controls, i even took the choke out, and that car has never run better .

from my understanding, these cars dont have much of emissions compared to other makes.

Holy Shit, you alone maybe was responsible for the warm winter we had this year. You are probably contribute 50% to global warming with your emission free Honda Don't they do e testing there?

LMAO, maybe, me and about 4-5 other hondas that run like that, mostly older 3g's like mines carb'd, i'm in Kelowna BC, air care is optional here. not like alittle down south where its required. the way i look at it, nothing pollutes more than a desiel.
