Isn't the job of the PCV Valve to regulate the amount of suction from the intake? Very little suction at idle and almost none at full throttle.

I really don't know....just a thought. I seen a setup like I suggested on a 327 V-8 Corvette with Tri-Power and he claims it works perfectly. Hooked up directly with no PCV.

Would there be a problem at idle if it was drawing full suction?

As I stated earlier....I really don't know and am just throwing out the topic for discussion.
