    Routing out of your valley tray into the top of the CC...out of the bottom of your CC to your throttle body. Stock it goes from your VT to your TB. Your introducing the CC in between to remove the oil mist.

    What about deleting the system altogether? Put the breather set-up on the rear driver side & in the oil cap cover and capping off the tb & left side valve cover?

    Pardon my ignorance, I've read your post Sarge, but are you saying that if you'll pulled the pvc system off, done the dual breather system & capping off set-up, there is still oil than can enter the tb & you still need the catch can as a fail-safe system?

    Well if you delete your PCV you have no return from the valley to the TB. But then you run into negative pressure and that causes blowby....so you need the positive crank pressure from the vacuum created by the intake....vacuum comes in handy when your trying to stop So delete the PCV/Add a catch can so you have the crank pressure/vacuum issue addressed without the oil mist being reintroduced via the TB. Now big cams do the same thing...rob vacuum from the crank.....I run a vacuum reserve canister...many run vacuum pumps.....

    Thanks Sarge, I was told this might be the cause of a little smoke between gears (pvc reintroducing oil into the TB. I'm gonna try it when i get the time.
