I am going to make my own catch can. Is it inlet at the bottom and outlet at the top? I am thinking this so oil doesn't travel back to the intake.
Other than that seems a straight forward job. Anything I missed?
I did this a while back and came up with my own opinion with the ccv mod. This is how i did it: 1) oil resistant hose from napa believe I got 3/4inch to fit around the vent elbow. 2) plugged the whole in the intake using a rubber stopper with a nut on the end of it. You can get them at any auto-parts store. If you dont know what im talking about ask and ill explain in detail 3) I made a catch can that would seperate the oil and allow the air to escape through a filter. Me and another forum member talked back and forth on ideas.(im trying to find the thread).
After assembling the whole system, I decided the catch can didnt work. Smelly as all H$%L and would leave oil stains all over the place. The problem is the oil/air mixture does not have enough time to seperate. So the pressure of air was hitting the bottom of the can and shooting it right back up to the filter and the filter was condisating the mixture. The filter would get oily and drip on the pavement.
I cut the whole thing off and just left the hose, the hose emits small amounts of smoke and the smell is hardly noticable. Oh! and the best part no oil stains. IMO if you wana catch can buy the one from Raul @ stealth auto.
