Cool. If your dumping the PCV to the ground i'd suggest venting the valve cover to the ground now as well since your not using the PCV valve anymore. The valve cover is the fresh air intake and the PCV dumps into the intake to be burnt off by the engine. Might be reverse flowing now causing you to be sucking oily air into the intake still and getting un-metered air after the MAF. Just a observation.
