I have tall Proform covers with what I thought was a pretty good baffle. Not quite true. What I ended up doing was very simple and fixed the problem almost 100%. I put two 0-rings around the PCV valve to space it up from the bottom of the baffle. Mine was sitting ON the baffle and sucking any oil that came it's way.

I also have an oil separator in my PCV hose. It helps but did NOT trap all the oil that was going through it. Maybe it's kinda hoky but it now has over 1/2 quart in it that was filtered out of the PCV line from just normal blow by.

JMark, when you say that the PCV on a Qjet is in the front, do you mean the vacuum port ?

My PCV hose runs to the back of the QJet on the distributor side....
