you don't need a special catch can for a twin cam engine. yes any one can be used.

No breather on this type,this type is just a inline catch can

Look at the last happy,you disconnect the hose from the rocker cover,get a new hose,that goes to the catch can,the existeng hose hooks up to the catch can too,I just used a 1/2" irrigation pipe joiner,and thats it

vik...keeps oil out of the turbo pipes,TB stays clean...

You have to empty it out manually,there ia a plug on the bottom of it for that...

vik...when you see oil in the sight tube,drain the thing...
