In fact, I've had the intake manifold off to reseal it and everything was fairly clean inside the intake passages. Some carbon, but definitely no buildup of oil gunk or anything like that. Original engine with 75K miles on it.
Not really so much about "clogging". More clean air fuel mix going in, more clean efficient burn coming out which helps with emissions and HP.....

Installed! I have a question for those of you that also have these, how do the clamps hold up? On the can itself I cant pull them off but on the actual PCV beside the intake I can pull those right off pretty much. Outside of that it only took about 30 minutes and I broke the original PCV lines lol, but I got a neat picture on that end for you guys.

See the thin lining of oil all throughout the original line? I assume my intake looks like that as well so I should've gotten one of these a long time ago


As for the rest

I also forgot to disconnect my battery

Should I disconnect and reconnect before starting or should it be fine? I can't drive it today, but I probably will tomorrow

Took my first drive with it, no CEL from not disconnecting the battery, and the clamps seem to hold on fine.

I'll probably pull the fuse and reset the fuel table today since it'll not be burning those oil vapors anymore
