Closed system ccv question

I've done some searching but haven't found what I'm looking for. I'm wanting to do a closed system ccv mod on my 6.4 because I don't want the smoke and the oil dripping in my driveway. I plan on buying 1" heater hose from the local hardware store with all the necessary clamps, mounting brackets etc but I want a nice oil catch can and can't find one with big enough inlets/outlets. Found some nice alum cans on eBay but the fittings are too small. I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a can. Anyone know where I can get one?

I got the catch can that NChornet makes from stealth automotive. IMO its a nice piece for a descent price.

Is that enough for a closed system? I read that you should use 1 inch For a closed system

Yeah, build your own. $100 for a piece of PVC pipe filled with plastic pot scrubbers IS NOT a decent price.
