On my street car with a chevy 350 Ive got a breather on the drivers side of the motor and on the passenger side, there is about a 3 foot section of heater tube that runs down just under the floor pans from the valve cover. Is this good enough? Does there have to be a PCV system to keep air circulating through the crank case on a street car? I was considering running like a metal dryer hose from under the front of the car to blowing right at the breather. Would that be over kill? What kind of setup is usually used?

That's the old fashioned way of doing it,pcv is one of the emissions devices that doesn't hurt performance any,and the big benefit is that it keeps the oil clean,and most factory carbs are calibrated to use it.

Any other oppinions? Is it really important to have a PCV setup? Can you get away with a breather and draft tube on a non-race motor?

Check out the drag racin boys thay run rhe draft tube into the exhaust at a angle to create a vacume on the engine. I dont care for pvc setups it pulls the oil vapor back into the intake tu try nd burn it.(just carbons everything up)
