Default Pcv valve?

I was wondering if anyone has heard of them failing or having issues? my trucks been smoking alittle and the guy at the dealership said " without a diag" that it could be the pvc valve and that my truck " 04 gmc 1500" has been known to have issues with them. also 2 other guys around town that own shops mentioned the pvc valve? so i was jw if anyone has heard of this and if so what one there running. thanks for the help guys....

Yeah, stock wires will get toasty. I ran a set of MSD wires on my GTO with headers and had no problem. You can carefully bend and tweak the metal part near the plug for extra clearance.

You could get theses heat sleeves like racers use. Not cheap, but they work great. I have some buddies that use 'em.

Don't touch the headers, they don't burn.

I have MSD wires w/Dynatech headers. No sleeves, no burn.
