  I believe so.  I think that's where the baffles come from.  They're not 
a diesel, OEM item.  I put one on the Rabbit and it fit.  Took it off 
after I put TS rings in though.  Not enough blowby to need it then.  
Easier to time without it.  Can see the cam lobes without pulling the 
valve cover.
