    Anyone have an idea on a "direct" fit into the OEM grommet that's a 90-degree bend? I hate to say it but with all the crap under my hood I'm having an issue with the hose exiting the PCV straight up and getting crushed a bit with the hood closed. I suppose a 90-deg pre-bent hose would work too but now I've got that semi-transparent hose that goes to the oil catch can from the PCV and I sort of like seeing what's coming out of the PCV and going into that can. I can say that when you block the PCV it makes the truck run odd. Thanks in advance for any leads - a Toyota PCV with the 90-deg would be optimal.

    There are some valves with a 90 degree bend. The trick will be to find one with a similar air bleed volume.

    How about a 90-deg coupler with hose barb on each end? Plug one side into the engine and the other, with a short piece of tube, connects to the PCV. The PCV then acts like an in-line valve. If it were at an ngle, then the upstream side could still drain.
