No PCV valve?

I recently put my new valve cover on and it came with those blue AN fittings and I didn't know how to use my pcv valve with those AN fittings so I just removed it and I'm using my boomba check valve, car seems to be running fine but I'm not sure if it can cause any potential problems.

Here's my current catch can setup...
Catch can, Check valve, passenger side valve cover
Catch can to TB
drivers side valve cover to to aem intake or thinking of using a breather for the drivers side valve cover.

If it has an AN fitting try seeing if the 03 pcv valve fits in it...

No it doesn't fit, the valve cover is threaded for the AN fitting, much different threads.

As long as you have the check valve your fine.

I run a gutted PCV with a boomba check valve.

Ok awesome I was told the same thing but wanted to make sure before I get my car in the dyno Tuesday. Should I connect my vc to my intake? Or just stick a breather on it?

The PCV can break and send its guts into the valve cover. Running a check valve is needed.

From the way you wrote that, it sounds like you have the check valve between the catch can and valve cover. If that's the case you should move it before the catch can so it's not being pressurized under boost.

Do not do that....Either dump the drivers side of the valve cover to atmosphere using a hose or just stick a filter on it. The oil vapors that are being released can contaminate the intake charge if it is ran straight to the intake.

I'm using a gutted PCV valve and have it dumped to atmosphere. The vaccuum nipple on my throttle body is used for something else now

The amount of oil that comes out of the valve cover vent wouldnt be enough to ruin anything IMO. I wasnt talking about putting the vent to the intake manifold.
