    Both...you're putting it in-line. So like with mine I have the hose coming from the PCV on the lid of the catch can....and on the side of the can I have the vacuum hose going to the intake manifold. That way as the oil is sucked into the can it drops to the bottom and the air with no oil is sucked out the side to the manifold.
