    Wow... don't think I've ever seen two of them hooked up that way (one can per each VC outlet with it's own line to the intake). But that is correct...inlet on top, outlet to suction on the side.

    Please keep us posted on how it works for you Dave. :thumb:

    Craig, I changed my mind after I ordered them from you and decided to go all out. Do you think this will work fine? I'll get some readings later this summer and let you know.

    VETTE_50_TH "Holy hose." The brightness or the size? It's earls pushlok and rated up to 250psi. I like a bright ricerish engine bay anyhow, although I did go a bit far with the blue!

    Please ask Craig what they cost (calan 3 posts up) as I purchased them a while ago and don't know what they currently cost. I can tell you that they are extreemly nice and I paid less for them then my buddy paid for his generic greddy catch can that is too large for a 2.0L.

    Should work with no issues, other than the cans may fill up a little faster. Crankcase pressure should be nice though. ;)

    No... just the cans.

    I can get fittings and stuff from Summit, JEGS, etc, but it cost me the same as anyone else (plus shipping)...so it usually ends up being cheaper to just buy the fittings and hose from your own source.

    But... we need to stay on topic here and take any other questions to PM's. ;)

    Well yes and no. I am always in a state of trying new things and adding, or in this case fixing the car. I almost always seem to find out some new information and have to go back and fix an old ignorant mistake. The fittings came from summit and since we have a distribution center close shipping is free and fast.

    Craig, I hope they fill up fast because that means they are doing their job well. :D It might even cure that oil leak I only get under boost.

    That's the idea... as long as CC pressure stays low as well.

    You'd be amazed at how many people are running empty cans (or cans with steel wool, etc), and argue that if a can is catching very much oil then something is wrong. They don't seem to realize how much oil vapor and nasty crap is being sucked straight through the can and back into their intake and IM... until they open it up. :)

    Looks good, now you just need to get that throttle body powder coated, takes away from the nice looking charge piping.

    I so got to get me one of these. Will be a while before I do since im no where near my car though (in Afghanistan, stationed in Germany, cars in Georgia...) So PLEASE keep making these things!


    I agree about the oil though, if you read the factory manual you will even notice the only reason it lists 15w-30 is for econemy...I don't think anyone here is THAT worried about the mpg. Go thicker if anything not thiner...unless maybe you live in an area where it gets stupid cold.

    Got to be a guinea pig and test out one of Craig's new catch can designs! :sneaky:

    First off, the catch can is beautiful. It was packaged very well and the design and the welds are top notch! I wish he was local so he could weld all of our parts!

    We hooked it up the day we got it and so far so good. I think we’ve only driven the car hard twice since we’ve installed it but all signs of blow-by are gone. Our dipstick hasn’t popped out, no oil spray, no oil seepage around the valve cover gasket or oil cap. Also, it was smoking from our last breather catch can setup through the breather and also out of the exhaust slightly. No signs of that with this guy. So finally a catch can setup that works for us! The coarse filter media and the filter seem to be doing a really great job also. Again, we haven’t had many opportunities to drive it since we installed it but from what I can tell so far it’s an awesome design.

    Another thing worth mentioning is we didn’t modify the valve cover, we just connected the –8AN lines directly to the stock valve cover ports (pretty much the same way Corey installed his). I realize if we start running into any issues, the problem would be that the valve cover openings aren’t large enough, the catch can wouldn’t be to blame.

    Here are pictures of the catch can when we received it and of it installed on the car. I apologize for all the pictures but I just couldn’t help it, it’s so nice! I know our engine bay isn’t as pretty as say, Corey’s or Paul’s – it’s kind of hard to keep up with those guys though! LOL

    Pictures (two -8AN inlets, one -10AN outlet):

    Looks great Keri! Just an FYI as I'm not sure I mentioned this in our PM, that side port on the VC can be tapped same as the PCV to run a bigger I.D. fitting.

    I don't understand how that works without suction through the crank case.

    The line to the intake (pre-turbo) apply's vacuum to the CC, which apply's vacuum to the crankcase. :)
