DIY CCV

So I been wanting to do the ccv mod for some time now so I finally decided to make my own catch can. Yes I know I could have bought one off Ebay for like 20 bucks but thats alright for me I like making my own stuff I made this for about 50$ Tell me what you guys think?

Pvc end caps
4inch pvc pipe
ccv vent
tube with fittings to see level of oil in the can
elbow fitting
and 12 ft of heater hose that the guy gave me a steal on, always be nice to the auto parts guy.

yeah I am myself... think the biggest issue is gonna be the heater hose failing. It holds pressure and the filter element lets air flow just fine.

I like it a lot. I think the heater hose will be just fine. What, you think it will melt? Curious how much oil you will collect between oil changes. Good job, thanks for sharing your ideas, very unselfish of you

Thanks No not that it will melt, but heater hose isnt petroleum treated so the oil might eat at it... we will see I guess doesnt matter to me got a great deal on the hose.
