    Yes, that was in 2009 and the car has been running fine since. The powder coat guy did the masking, I removed the SENsors, he coated the covers, and I reinstalled them. Been running fine ever since.

    Thanks Rocket for the update...
    Since the outlet tube is also the PCV valve, functionality is important.
    Sounds like you didn't do the grocery bag thing and mask things up as you said the tube got powder coated.
    From what you can tell did the PCV valve maintain its integrity and functions properly despite the 400 degree heat?

    Rocket - see attached a picture of the Left (drivers) valve cover underside.
    The inlet tube is also the PCV and is an integral part of the cover. From what Ive been reading it cant be removed. If you have a bad PCV the whole cover must be replaced.
    You will also see the rubber grommet surrounding it.
    My question is when you powder coated yours - did the grommet and inlet tube/PCV survive the 400 degree heat & does your PCV function properly?
    If you got that tube out of yours I sure would like to know how.
    This set up should be common for the 05-09 series.
    Sorry I cant attach the picture the forum wants to know the Http:// ??? Its just a Jpeg.
    Maybe send me your email and I'll send it over.

    For the 09 I'm speaking of the Driver side. It comprises of the VCT sensor and a degree breather tube that is adjacent to the VCT. This is the tube I speak of that appears to be pressed in - underneath makes a 90 degree - travels under the long riveted plate & at the opening is housed in a rubber grommet.
    On the passenger side is an oil filler cap that connects directly to the cover along with a smaller metal breather type tube for that cover. This tube has no grommet and is just pressed in.
    On your driver side , is your breather tube configured like mine and pressed in? How did you get it out, and did you notice a grommet on the underside?

    Thanks Rocket...
    The inlet tube appears to be pressed in. How did you remove the inlet tube with out damage and what is the correct way to put it back in?
