wondering where this would go??? serious question btw....

where in the engine and catchin oil from where?
:facepalm:

haha j/k... the catch can can be mounted anywhere under the hood. best if lower than the pcv. and it catches the oil blow by from the engine. they dont have a catch can factory for emissions. stock the oil blow by goes thru the pcv then back into the intake manifold to be reburned. the catch can will catch the oil then emptyd from the catch can. thats short form explanation anyways

filter is to allow it to breathe because im not going to run it inline. im going to drillout the pcv and run a line from it to the catch can rather than back into the intake manifold.

yeah you can run these on stock cars, you dont have to be turbod to use one. main reason to invest in one is to keep oil from being reburned. when oil is reburned it can throw of your a/f ratios, cause less mpg, sludge, and loss of power. the car doesnt come with a catch can from the factory because of emissions. they want the oil to be reburnt
