Well, I made it! Plates are installed. CHP was no issue, easy in and out. No appointment necessary in Ventura so I got it done quick. After that was the BAR. He didn't like my PCV setup so I had to make a quick run to autozone and rearrange it. Just for clarification you need a PCV in one valve cover going to manifold vacuum and a breather cap (no holes in the bottom) in the other valvecover that connects to the air cleaner baseplate. Incidentally they checked my emissions. He said it was about the same as 100 cars combined. I asked if that meant its 100 times cooler, and I think he agreed it was.
After that I made the final DMV trip and got my plates! No more illegal trips arou d the block for this guy!!
