    I thought the gen 3 blocks with gen 2 heads was a no go.

    I thought I read that as well, not sure.

    Something like this is looking good - gen 2 Aluminator barely used, basically a crate engine ~$7k: 5.0l Cyote Engine M-6007-A50SCA Aluminator | eBay

    Then I need to install my gen 1 intake cams (gen2 exhaust cams are okay from what I read on another thread??) and plug an oil hole somewhere. Again, just getting this from reading other threads about gen2 block in a gen 1.

    There is a small thing with the head gaskets one of the cooling ports is slightly different its slightly blocked by the gasket but it doesn't seem to be an issue.

    Yeah thats what it is. Was in a thread where an engine shop chimed in & said they would not recomend nor do that for costumers. But that was shortly after it had been tried. Idk how well it has endured.

    Vic - thanks for the advice and insight so far. I'm making a new thread for overall suggestions since it's off topic with my original thinking of a pcv issue :( but just a general question - how hard is the swap of the short block, generally speaking? I've swapped a whole engine before (a long time ago) and I've done all the work to this car myself, or with my car friend (like my clutch more recently). But, I've never assembled a motor like this from a low level starting with the short block. It looks/seems not that bad, but maybe I'm being naive, lol? Also I read a lot of good info on the other thread where you guys were discussing this topic not that long ago. Thanks!

    Good day guys. New to the forum and reading this thread my setup has a similar issue although not nearly as bad. My car has the D1X and just made full power on the dyno so don't think I have a compression issue. I have breathers in both valve covers but my ProCharger has no air filter only a screen. My concern is my breathers get covered in oil in literally 5 minutes. Was thinking of adding a catch can to the passenger side of the throttle body that is currently capped off and connecting to the passenger side valve cover. I always smell a hint of oil but nothing major. I'm thinking I need something to pull a little vacuum out of the motor but have nowhere to hook a hose for the PCV on the intake. Thoughts?
