jrsc svt focus pcv

Hello I recently stopped by a performance shop and I told them I was venting my pcv off to atmosphere both on the front of the engine as well as the valve cover he told me to never do that a list of reasons that go on and on, my question is should I hooked it back up because when it is hooked up it eats oil like flipping crazy 1qt every 3 or 400 miles all through the pcv hose I replaced the pcv valve several times and I think the box on the front of the crank case is bad what else would cause that much oil consumption, and no it doesn't burn oil ever since I vented it off it hasn't eaten any oil and its a new engine help what do I do , I don't want a catch can cuz I would be emptying it out every time I fill up

I would like to know there reasoning about why NOT to do this , other then emissions

From the first car built to about 1967-1972 ALL engines were vented like this then emissions came along and they didnt want the oil dripping onto the roads

Leave it like you have it
