    Hello everyone i've recently read up how drilling out the pcv valve can benefit performance and allow the engine to breath more efficiently. But i am having trouble removing it as it seems stuck. I have seen many videos where people remove it with ease. But i cannot get it out, i have tired pulling up on the valve spraying wd 40 around to try and remove it even trying to pry underneath it to no success. Is there some type of way to get it out? or is it glued shut to the valve cover?

    There is a bit of red thread lock on it. The valve needs to be given a little twist to break the thread lock and then it will come out.
