    Interesting as the parts manual showed it and that is why I put it in there when I changed my thermostat for the first time. I wonder if that is why I get a random small evap leak code sometimes. Any yeah.... another discontinued part. Guess I'll have to rig it to make things work :-( Part number 4848340AC is what I found. I may have to see if I can find a breather valve that matches the PCV that I have in there or maybe gut the PCV.

    Dean, thanks. This does help me get a better idea of where its placed in relation to the other components.

    I may have to pick your brain a bit later on about the pcv setup with a boosted application. One way check valves keeping boost from entering the crank case and such are probably in order along with a few other tidbits.

    Got a picture for you and their is way less room than I thought. Picture below for reference.

    P.S. - Got the breather situation fixed. None are available but I figured out that if you grind off the bottom nipple of the PCV valve it's guts come out and you have a hollow breather now. Super easy fix for once.

    Thanks for the photo. Absolutely no real room to do anything. Oh well. At least that question is answered.
