Is this just a 2010 and 11 LLT v6 problem or does the 2012 LFX V6 have the same issue?

It is all, but usually over time and the V8's dont have much issue unless forced induction or a big NA build. The picture of the LFX shows the location in the rear of the passenger side valve cover. You can easliy remove it by twisting and pulling up with a plyers or vace grip. Then you will see one hole in the top, two in the bottom.

So all V6's will eventually have a problem with this even without a catchcan and breather?
I am not one that likes modding the engine from the way it comes from the factoryin fear one of these could end up doing more harm than good. Putting the catch can on was even a struggle for me. I don't have a breather on mine because I still have the stock intake setup.

Yes....the tiny holes get restricted from gunk buildup over time.

After talking to Tracy and cleaning/expanding the holes - I would recommend to ANYONE that checking this every other oil change is a good idea. You can easily clean it out with brake cleaner.

What is the purpose of that barb? Is it a check valve type thing or is it just a thing used to connect the tube with the valve cover? I just want to knowits true purpose and if drilling out the holes won't affect something else like letting even more oil through to the catch can.

Same location. The purpose is to restrict the flow to slow oil ingestion....but the side effect is they are to easy to clog when so tiny.

So you will probably get more oil in the catch can when you enlarge the ports on this.

Depending on the amount of blow-by and how well your rings sealed you sure could.

Ok I am feeling really dumb here, what is the OEM Clean side? The only thing I have changed is adding a catch can the rest of the system is OEM.
Thanks for the info.

The clean side refers to the driver's side. There is a fitting on the back of the driver's side valve cover with a hose attached that runs from there to your intake.

Just so we are clear, I have a LS3 with Maggie. This should not be a problem for me because I already have that nipple plugged off. It was the one that ran to my intake right?

Oh I got it. This is at the end o the hose that is connected to the catch can, correct?

How exactly does it come off? I'm guessing the black peice is a cover that snaps off, the you use pliers to take out the valve?

Hardest part was getting it out, my vice grips were almost too big, I couldn't find my Channel Locks, which would have worked better.

I bought the RX can and breather and will have it installed on my LS3. Will this issue become a problem for me and should I have my installer drill these holes?

According to Tracy all the Camaro's have this same issue. Just maybe located in a different spot for the SS.

So these barbs are connected to the valve covers and are what the hoses that connect to the CC are connected too?
