Will this catch can setup work?? Thoughts please

I have been doing a lot of research on catch cans and have heard some mixed reviews and thoughts. I am trying to keep the system closed and avoid venting to atmosphere.The truck is a 99.5 7.3. I currently dont have any mods done but plan to upgrade to 38r turbo and stage 2 injectors in the next couple of years. An intake and exhaust soon. The catch can is made by Elite Engineering USA. It has 3/16 inlet and outlet but can be easily upgraded to 3/4. It has a built in steelwool like filter that looks to be pretty free flowing. It has an inlet to come from valve cover and an outlet to go back to airbox tube. Again I want to try and keep the system closed but absolutely want to get the oil residue out of the system. I also dont want to risk gasket blow out and internal damage. Let me know your thoughts, this is a freebie can from a friend so if theres a chance of problems, no love lost on not using it.

Too small. IH designed the system to vent to atmosphere close to the engine. Anything you do other than OEM or vent to atm will cause a risk of blowout.
