 It appears that I can't attach an MS Office file here.

 Maybe there's something I'm missing.

try to "copy and the paste" the text.... but if it's 2 pages I'm not sure it would fit.

This is an interesting topic. The possible adverse effects should be considered by anyone thinking of doing this. Thank you for posting some of the issues you did have, and some of your concerns too.

I wonder what the gains would be if the crankcase were vented outside of the vacuum like I mentioned before (all else equal).

The PCV system is considered to be an emission control and the EPA might not be that happy, at least not for street use.

I can tell you that the EFI 2.3T has a "Metered Air" system that is designed to work with a PCV and 'vented' crankcase. The vent is after the VAM so all the air in the engine is metered, so IF this were to be done it would not have an effect on the METERING of the air (mixture). One more thing to think about with this set-up: the location of the "vent", its between the VAM and the turbo; in a vacuum area. Other possible effects, good or bad, are still a '?'.

I would think that it would change the mixture for a carb.ed engine (fixed mixture). Yes, some, if not all Pintos have the vented oil cap have a tube to the air can, but it is located before the air fliter (restriction).

Cars with "Speed Density" or "MAP" sensors might not deal well with the change (I don't know).

Might I ask why, if this is so cost & fuel efficient; not to mention (your implication, not mine) that it is common sense;  do not all auto manufacturers utilize it?
