Yes, the STATOR post on the alternator only produces current (1/2 the charging voltage) when the alternator is spinning so, in effect, it IS sort of a "switched" source.
You don't really get any more POWER using full manifold vacuum vs. ported as both sources will yield near zero at WOT, but at idle and closed throttle you'll have additional spark advance which is beneficial to combustion temperature and idle quality.
If the PCV is connected, and working, and you still have that much blow-by, it's an indication that the compression rings are whipped or you have a more drastic cylinder sealing issue.
LOL, just think of your BRAIN as the CPU and your fingers as a Data Link Cable....
What, me worry?
