Crank case check valve. Where to buy?

Postby Yoshi » Mon Jun 08, 2009 7:10 pm

I'm lazy and might hook my crank case vent to my charge piping or exhaust. But If I do either, I NEED a check valve to make sure boost doesn't find its way into my crank case. Ideas?

how much pressure? you can get check valves at home depot for gas lines etc. but i don't really know how they're rated or anything.

If you run your vent to your charge pipe you're
effectively putting a cork in on boost. = very bad. :oops:

Yea its not ideal. I want to make some stuff so I can hook it up in front of the turbo. But I need to fab piping for that.
