It's still a bit of a question mark.....Rings were solid, valves were good, head gaskets were good... looks like all the oil is in the intake on the PCV side....

Anyone have issues with the PCV on the mopar performance valve covers? Different baffle design than factory, that's my only guess currently. But on the plus side nothing internal is broke.

Chasing that myself actually.. Going to come up with a way of extending the location of the pcv higher and further away from the valve cover here soon.. Hopefully it'll work as intended AND not look stupid.. lol

Well I spent the money on the mopar pcv and the grommets specifically for the performance valve covers. Gonna keep an eye on it and see if the problem persists. If it doesn't i'll likely throw a catch can on it.

But on the plus side she's running well.

because of my added ratio rockers the baffles in the oe valve covers had to come out. I never had weeping grommets this bad b4. the catch can helps keep the intake clean but does nothing for the sloppy v covers.
thinking bout going to high fabricated LA valve covers. under those will be room for added baffles. haven't decided yet though less nail down bolts may cause other weeping issues.

Those are nice, i've got the magnum performance covers that are a bit taller, but have basically no baffles other than directly in front of the holes for plugs/pcv/breather.

Well, she was fine, bad PCV was the main cause of the oil consumption. Back in and runs pretty good. Still a little on the fat side and have some stalling issues that i'm trying to work out, but other than that she seems pretty happy.
