Maybe it will work good.
Correct. The pumps help promote ring seal and thus gives increases of 10+ HP, with lighter than stock tension rings offering up to about a 30 HP increase.) The pump drag is a non-issue as the pumps offer virtually zero resistance (meaning we can intentially leave the drive belt quite loose to reduce side load pull on the bearings.) Mine's a GZ, has seen numerous 8300rpm runs, and is also street friendly. Unfortunately the cost to play isn't cheap and typically start in the $1K range.If you’re looking to control/minimize ring flutter, no PCV system will do that, regardless of how it’s plumed. You’re in vacuum/evac pump territory.
A vacuum pump would work but it needs to be electric for high rpm use and thats just more weight in the frontI've always wondered if the old Thermactor smog pump would work for crankcase evacuation. Just a simple vane type setup. So long as it wasn't sucking water or globs of oil, it should pull a few inches of vacuum, right?
Right. A pcv valve and breather cap on the same valve cover doesnt do anything. The pcv valve sucks air from the cap across the inside of the valve cover but doesnt suck fro3m the crankcase.I thought the pcv was supposed to be on opposite sides so as to draw fresh air not just to the valve cover area but through the crankcase.
I contacted Wagner and its not a high rpm race piece. Race engines dont use a pcv so why design one that nobody but me would by. i drive race engines on the street, for daily driver, etc. I'm techincally a hard core biker except preference is a Campbells chicken noodle suoped mustang and other fords. The breather system isnt that great for street use. the pcv is a great thing.Why wont the Wagner PCV valve work for a high rpm engine?
You are really overthinking this - the breather will simply vent at high rpm if pressure in the crank case goes positive .PCV will maintain negative pressure the rest of the time.
Otherwise as said, run a belt driven vac pump. Best solution outside of a dry sump.
