The catch can would hopefully catch all of the oily stuff, but if routin it into the bubbler still sounds dangerous, I'll just route the PCV gases to atmosphere

I've now got a 50% lower grille block done, I'll try and grab a pic to try and post somehow, but it's improved warm up time a little...

I just did a full lower grill block on my Mirage. It definitely improved warm up times.

Even at only 50% lower and full upper blocks, during extended periods of high speed driving(late to work, etc) the engine begins to get warm... I ran late one night and it got up around 215* as I averaged about 73mph(compared to my normal 40-ish mph)
