ccv question

not the standard question. im going to my ccv mod tomorrow but im just putting a inline filter instead of running to atmosphere. i know when you run to atmosphere you want to have a continuous downhill run so you dont have any dips for oil to pool up. since i am going to use the factory inlet in the intake for vacuum does everything need to be level or can the canister be higher or lower than the vent on the valve cover?

Rancor has a hp rating for each size. the 4500 is rated up 400 hp. was brought to my attention by robertc68. just something to consider.

according to Rancor's website they are. I wojld guess they havd got to be able to flow more than the cc produces. if not a positive pressure is created and you risk blowing a seal. Rancor canisters have a pop indicator to show if a positive pressure has been achieved indicating the filter element needs to be replaced

So I take it the ccv canisters for high hp applications have a bigger diameter hose and maybe a better flowing filter? Seems to me your limited to the size coming out of the motor and staying with that size should be acceptable. I might be confused though(not hard to do!)

the one I havr is a 3/4 in and a 1" out of canister. the element would also create a bottle neck if plugged or undersized.
