Finally got an update saying my order will not be shipped until 6/13. That said I am going to try some alternative sourcing today to see if I can start getting at least some of you earlier payers shipped out. If I could get just 10, the most of you would be taken care of. Will let you know the next update I get, and thanks for your patience.

Cool man. Let us know what you think about it. Also don't forget to make sure your head channels are clear to the intake ports, you use a new gasket, and I'd lightly RTV seal those boosted channels between the head and gasket mating surfaces; making sure the RTV doesn't or can not block the holes once compressed. Also make sure you have a good torque spec on the cover especially on the side with those boosted channels.

Sure can but I'm currently awaiting an order delivery. It could be a few weeks before delivery if sourcing remains scarce as it is today.

Nope. But you will know first thing. Have other priorities right now.

My source has now shipped these valves to me. This means they will be going out in the next week sometime. Good news.

Rob. Just got back from a month of field time and was able to install this part for you. The install was a little difficult without taking the fuel line off. But was due able. Only question now is how do we know if its working after we install it?

Just be careful, Stpjib. The extra power can get out of control very easily for the uninformed.

I was just kidding with you, as the RB part is simply a heavier-duty replacement PCV system check valve that insures pressure can't leak past the valve. Any power gain would be negligible.

Happy to hear your 135 is moving strong! Mine is running better than ever, and I can't wait to get to the track to see what it will do with the RB Turbos. Take care.

It's looking like these will all be shipped by early next week. Sorry for all the delays, good thing I ordered plenty enough to cover the outstanding orders. Just in doing so caused a massive order delay.

It is about $30. Consider it cheap insurance.

Rob, any idea on how to get a replacement PCV cap? I damaged mine . Real OEM only shows the whole valve cover assembly.
