What are you spicificly referring too?
Idle control has been an issue. But we have 2 options in that. And working out the rest as we go.

I mean to stop boost pressure from pressurising the crankcase, I've seen one way pcv (positive crankcase ventilation) valves plumbed in to allow the engine to vent crank compression without allowing boosted air in.
Does that make sense?

Ah I see I have a catch can and venting set up yet to see if it all works. Again one of the what if things.

Im not sure if the s54 CCV system is different in stock form, but I'm happy to post up some pics of my catch can setup, which appears to catch, nothing bar condensation !!! lol... Which is actually good news.

sorry for this being delayed buddy.... been a busy weekend.

excuse the order of the pics but basically from the cam cover, we go to the bottom of the oil catch can, its filled with 4 discs with differing size wholes to catch the blow by, it then has to travel up the can to the top which as you can see connects to the inlet of the blower in my case. The catch can is billet and is beautifully constructed , it even has its own dip stick , lol!!
