Make sure when you put your PCV valve in the oposite side valve cover, that you either have a valve cover with a baffle in it(which your's will not have if it doesn't already have a hole in it) or buy the type rubber grommet that has a baffle made on it for the PCV valve to go into. It may be best if you go to a parts store and buy the grommet and PCV valve to match, then cut the appropriate size hole in the vavle cover to match the grommet you have purchased. They do come in various sizes. IF you do not have a baffle in the vavle cover or in the grommet, you will suck the oil out of your engine thru the PCV vavle...not a pretty sight...and the end results are usually not good either....
