Is it always necessary to run a breather on the catch can as you have yours?

its not necessary just easier and neater than running a hose from the top to before the turbo.

ah thats fair. Thanks for that. I have a supercharged setup and currently my PCV hose isnt connected to anything and it just spits oil out everywhere. Not a good look. Plus the rear hose at the back of the rocker cover is connect before the s/c and is pushing vapor into the s/c under boost so thta is NOT good either, hence the urgency to get a catch can to eliminate this issue.

Have you blocked off where the rear breather hose connects to the throttle body? so the boost doesnt escape.

yeah thats blocked. I originally had LPG fitted to my car and the PCV used to be connected to the TB. I got my tuner to remove that little plate that the LPG systems use on the TB, block up the hole that was there and retuned it.

well I just bought a 'Drift' brand catch can from Autobarn at Mile End today. Looked the goods and was made better than the cheap version they had on the counter.

I got home and setup the flood light to get an idea of the location of where I plan to fit it and F me, there is almost zero space to put the darn thing.

I took off my front grille, dummied it here and there and ended up dummying it in a location where I think is best suited and the most neatest.

I didnt fit it in position yet as I forgot to get extra hoses for the PCV and the breather hose from the back of the rocker.

So I took some pics of the proposed location of where I reckon I'll get it mounted.

Please feel free to offer better suggestions if you think you can.
