Absolutly. EV-10 Motorcraft is a good generic PCV to use with custom valve covers.

For a street strip car, run the PCV. I ran one on my '67 and never had any problems. As a matter of fact, the PCV will help prevent oil leaks!

Yes, most carbs are calibrated for PCV and it helps relieve pressure in crankcase. Remember to put a filtered fresh air vent in other cover .
