Depends what you're looking for...because of having a turbocharged motor the filter will work until you reach some boost. I say that because under normal idling conditions the engine isn't being stressed and there is no pressure to ventilate. Once you add higher than normal atmospheric pressure the excess air is vented through the CCV tube. I personally wouldn't run one and if you want to do a CCV mod run a line to the back of the truck or exhaust (away from the turbo). I don't recommend a oil catch can either unless you plan on staying stock. With a modified motor I've found that they restrict more than running a stock setup even if the ID of the everything going in and out of the catch can is the same size/or larger of what the dog house on the valve cover is. FWIW, just my .02

I have the canister type and I think I make plenty of power. I return the air to the air filter housing like this:


The elbow you see going into the side of the housing is the return hose from the two in line canisters under the truck. I don't like the smell or the smoke in the mornings. I have no leaks either so I don't think I am causing any backpressure in the engine. I also don't like puking that junk into the air. I am no tree hugger but I try to do my part to keep the air clean, until I hammer it.
