It just goes inline between the pipe off the PCV on the rocker cover and to were that goes on the inlet manifold. easy peasy.
I fitted a breather filter on the rear rocker cover breather.

No, get a catch can with two fittings, one goes from catcvh can to PCV, the other from the manifold to the catch can. As I said all it is doing is going in line between the PCV and manifold to catch the oil instead of it going into the manifold and into the combusion.
As for needing one, no you don't.
