Hey,<p>So I'm almost done my swap. I've got a 98 T5 which threw a rod... So the new motor is out of a 99 XC, and it's GOT VVT. So the headaches begin. <p>So far I've finished up everything (swapping manifolds, swapping to disty, swapping all of the t5 stuff on)<p>The problem<p>So now I seem to have a problem with the PCV system. First the front crank seal started to leak. Now I just popped a cam seal right out of the head. It seems that Im building pressure in the PCV/ Crankcase and blowing out seals. <p>NOW I know that the PCV on the 99 is quite a bit differently than on the 98. I used all of the 98 hoses, cannister etc. <p>Anyone have any ideas? I keep poping random oil seals.<p>Thanks!<br>Brandon<p><br>

Re: (Chilled Man)

Yep, VVT head is on the car. I plan to run it with an RPM activated switch, for now it's just not hooked up while I figure out the other issues. <p>Anyone familiar with the crankcase vent problem?
