just put mine in 2 weeks ago. the tube going to the catch can just replaces the metal pipe going from the valve cover to the intake.

I just ran a 1/2" braided hose from the barb on the valve cover to the catch can.

The crankcase breather tube connected to a collector works OK with just the pressure built under the valve cover, but using suction from the intake will mimic the stock condition and pull dirty gases out.

I'll look for a pic....

Yep, mine still has the smaller hose & check valve (hidden under the engine cover).

That's a really good way to handle it.....


I've seen guys comment about how clean their engines are running because they can't see anything in their catch cans...DOH!


In this one, red catch can is attached to the intake heat shield. Dirty hose from engine is at top, running into can half-filled with coarse steel wool, clean hose runs back into intake under the heat shield....

Torque dampers are good. I think it's a better solution in many ways over the poly trans mount.

It increases NVH, but it improves shifting considerably. I machined my own.

just to double check, the check valve on the PCV-tb line should be allowing air to flow only FROM the TB, right? (Not sure how I have it set up even come to think of it...)

But after reading about how it sucks the vapors from the valve cover to the inlet pipe I'm glad I hooked mine back up...

you have to take the di out. There is a small torc screw that will need to be taken out. The end of the line has a banjo bolt attached to the inlet pipe, that needs to be taken out. That will need to be plugged. ON the y plugs sticking out of the head, you leave the line and check valve alone. It's the line that is the right of te y plug.
