Not all "emissions hardware" is evil! Some is even helpful. The PCV sure beats the old vent the crankcase directly to ground below the engine prevalent in the pre 60s vehicles [like my old 1955 Chevy Bel Aire and 1951 Hudson]. That's why in old photos you can see a dark stripe down the center of traffic lanes and why you had to drive carefully after a rain storm,

You don't have a charcoal canister but you do have a thing called a flow guide valve. Excess gas fumes flow into the inside of the engine when parked. When started the PCV valve draws all these fumes into the intake and burns them. Simple and foolproof and has no effect on running at all unless you mess with it.
