Believe it or not, I have my PCV hooked to the rear carburetor, on my blown Hemi, (engine in my Avatar) with no breather(s), and it works great. Doesn't suck oil, oil is clean, and I have no oil leaks. I figure that without breathers, the system is only pulling crankcase fumes when ever it needs to, like WOT, idleing, etc. There really isn't any overpowering vacuum while the engine is running, so sucking gaskets in hasn't been a problem...or hasn't appeared to be. Installing the PCV this way has taken care of any little seeps I ever had, and now the engine stays clean. Time will tell, but so far, it works great...
