it shouldn't have any affect on your timing.

you need to be sure the valve cover has baffles where your going to put the PCV valve. if it doesn't have baffles, the PCV valve will pull oil out of the crankcase.

You will only need the baffle at the suction point, which is the PCV valve.

make sure that your filler cap/ breather has a filter... don't want dirt/bugs inside your engine...
