The PCV system reduces pollution by collecting "blow-by" (unburned gasoline and oil vapor) that would otherwise be vented into the air we breathe. The PCV system routes blow-by back to the intake system so it can be burned properly. PCV is designed to handle these by-products correctly; it is not harmful to the engine. Placing a closed container on the end ...

Big difference in BTU's there. And is your goal to bring the shaft to 0 rpm ...
