Hi all,

Can somebody explain to me, or better draw me a picture on how you'd install an oil catch can on an E series falcon...???

Do catch cans have a PCV in them to help maintain vacuum on lines that are suppose to have vacuum, or they only stop oil being sucked through the air filter or what?

Im not sure if its much different on an e-series or not, but with my catch can, I had it connected this way:

Rear breather hose to catch can
PCV to catch can
Catch can to air filter of supercharger

I think for NA applications, PCV to catch can as well as rear heater hose to catch can is sufficient. It should create a vacuum to the catch can. Effectively catching any oil residue while it breathes.

Of course I could be wrong with this theory.
