Hi , i am pretty sure that can be done because i saw a valley plate cover that someone was using and it had been tapped , but it wasnt a homemade thing it was actually bought somewhere , i know what you mean about the small filters on your valve covers because this is what i did w,,ith my magnuson set up on my 4.8 pickup because i did not want to vent it back into the intake and gum up my supercharger , they look pretty old school on each valve cover but they work , i am pretty sure your idea will work afterall you are just venting pressure , if it is not thick enuf to tap you can use a bulk head an fitting with a seal washer, when i get around to it this is what i am going to do , Eric
Its not too difficult a swap. Cutting the piece out of the block that needs to be removed can be cause a little anxiety. I guess I'm not sure if the 6.0L Block would need this modification or not. Either way, its not as bad as it sounds.
Agree with Mumbles just buy the ls6 cover I paid like 90 and it came with new gasket and bolts

I don't want that **** running up to the throttle body, is there any way to just get rid of that?
The PCV valve is essentially a check valve, correct? It allows dirty air to leave without allowing any air to enter back into the system.
Couldn't I run an in-line PCV valve to a vented catch can, and not have to run anything back to the intake?
There would be no way to draw or evac the harmfull combustion byproducts out of the crankcase. You must have a filtered fresh air source preferably on the oppiste valve cover as the crankcase evacs from. The intake manifold provides the vacuum to acomplish this. A good oil seperating can will not allow oil vapor to get through.
Do a search for: "is my catchcan routing correct?"
