PCV questions for turbo set up

Hey got a few questions. I am getting ready to install a turbo on my 410. Need to know best set up for pcv. I was thinking I'd put a 90* tube in the exhaust and run up to the valve covers but, after thinking would a vacuum pump be that much more effective? and worth the $$. I did build the block with intentions of putting boost to it so I have the rings filed for it. Any help would be great.

4500 non lock-up stall FBperformance 4STB
410's out back on 31 spline spool.

I plugged the factory PCV hole at the rear of the intake. Then I ran a -10 line from each valve cover to a catch can. That was all I did on mine. A good vacuum pump is really the way to go but it will cost you. I have heard some debate as to whether a vacuum pump can keep up with crank case pressure on a boosted engine at full boost. Personally I think it can but there are others that think it wont. Good luck.

An expandable plug, they sell them at any auto parts store. Its a rubber piece that expands as you tighten the nut on it. Pretty simple. If I had the engine out of the car and things were more accessible, I would either use a freeze plug or tap it and use a pipe plug.

I just hacked off the bottom of my PCV valve, took out the guts and used it as a fitting and ran a 3/8 line to a breather tank.
