Interesting, the fixed orifice is what replace the traditional PCV to stop the oil consumption. How bad was it?
As clean as the valve cover and rocker arms looked, you could tell that I use synthetic oil. It was a little dirty under the baffle where the orifice is located, but I sprayed damn near a whole can of CRC parts cleaner and degreaser on it, paying attention to get under that baffle the best I could. That stuff is pretty good. I put a fel-pro gasket on it and torqued it down to spec. I guess if this doesn't work I'll buy a new valve cover.

Sorry Nick. I couldn't bring myself to try the high mileage oil.

No problem. You are doing well with the regular OE so in reality why change. Hope you have a good Thanksgiving.
