Please Help-edelbrock 1405 On Chevy 350

ok so im running an edelbrock 600 manual, with an edelbrock performer rpm intake. my problem is when i bought it they had the very front vacuum tube (pcv) blocked off. there are two empty holes in the intake that im assuming have something to do with this. my car is running some pretty stout oil pressure (23 in gear at idle and about 40 cruising and 40 while parked at idle) my valve covers have holes drilled for breathers but i rlly need to figure out how to hook up the pvc system and tune down some of the internal pressure because iv notced a nice little leak on the drivers side of the intake manifild. PLEASE HELP A 20 YR OLD WITH FIRST HOTROD! lol..

You need a breather in one side and a pcv on the other side. It really doesn't matter, just make sure you have them. Connect the pcv valve to either a direct manifold vacuum source, or use the one on the carb, and plug all the others. Also, make sure there is a baffle to prevent the pcv sucking oil into the engine.
