Don't hold your breath for it Riggo, the body will rust out before its ready. The CCV is extremely complex.

Closest fix I've seen is the direct PCV valve in line between the manifold and valve cover, and cap everything else. However, long term effects have not been known to the engine (it may allow too much vaccuum), but it looks promising, as well as simple, and cheap.
