    $130. plus tax on Ebay is the cheapest I can find. Anyone know of a better place to buy one?

    Have you used one, and if so do you figure it is worth the $?

      I bought 2 from their website. One for my turbo 4.6 DOHC jet boat, I'll find out when it gets warmer how that works. And one for my 496 stroker that hopefully this summer will be on the road, then find out on that one. I don't think there are any retailers for them. The price on their website is the price.

        They have a website. It's a tunable pcv valve that can be tailored to an engine's requirements.
        Edit: originally typed egr valve for some reason.

          Probably would not stop rough idle unless it was caused by the PVC system.
          The main advantage is you can tune the amount of PVC operation at idle and at cruise.

            I looked on their website. Claims to stop oil leaks, keeps the engine cleaner. Might increase vacuum at idle and part throttle. Also, forum and club members may be eligible for a discount.
            I ought to buy one.

            Not sure what "Pushrod" was disagreeing with, but here's the gist. The PCV, positive crankcase ventilation, was designed to do a couple things. 1st, to keep the crankcase vapors out of the environment to some degree and the oil slick down the center of the highway, and recirculate it back to the intake to be burned. A byproduct of that is that while the engine is running at idle and cruising speeds, 90% + of the time, it pulls a vacuum on the crankcase. So air comes in a breather and the engine vacuum pulls it out through the PCV. This vacuum helps keep from having positive pressure in the crankcase. A positive pressure "can", not "always", cause oil leaks. Supposedly each PCV valve is tailored to its specific engine. So theoretically they will not perform optimally on a modified engine. The Wagner is tunable. There have been magazine articles on this product, all with good reviews. There are many opinions, "if it's built right. If it's tuned right, it wont have any leaks and doesn't need a PCV valve, just 2 breathers". That is their opinion and I won't try to change that. For my engines, I like the idea and am hoping I have good results with it. As for the turbo jet boat, I'm also installing a vacuum pump for when the engine is under boost to help with the same issues, leaks and ring seal/blowby.

              PVC is a good thing on a street engine for many reasons that are all well documented.
              There must be a reason every car manufacturer has exclusively used the PVC system for around the last 50 years. If manufactures could do away with it and save money they surely would.
              I have a Wagner valve on my 340 engine and it works fine.
              I find engines without PVC the oil gets dirty quick and they are smelly.

                Great product from a great family. Father is the machinist, son the engineer , I think it is the mother answers the phone. Gene ,the father answers any and all questions and is a pleasure to do business with. I am a distributor but I had to promise gene that I wouldn’t sell cheaper than him.
