Good if you are trying to blow seals apart.

The passenger side needs to be able to vent also, having a 3rd line from it going to the supercharger inlet will be a lot better or else you will push oil into the spark plug galley. I have done that before and oil was all over the place. It won't be able to push into the manifold at boost and that is where high blow-by occurs.

so would you say other than the check valve on drivers side that it is a good setup - is the check valve breather oil fill cap good ??

would a separate catch can on drivers did with breather filter be better, I just don't want any oil getting into main air inlet... OR

would it be optimal for drivers side to also pull from intake also and somehow breathe

It can work but the optimal setup is dual catch cans so it puts the crankcase under a vacuum. I've been running 2 cans for a long time and my intercooler showed no oil at all in it. High boost requires a lot of evac.

Elite Engineering posted the setup I almost use, I have a catch can on the driver side that is free flowing. Dual inlets on the IPF intake tube using 3/8 hose barbs. I'll post more after work, girls won't work the streets without proper motivation.

Here's how I have mine setup. Dual outlet E2-X Ultra, middle port goes to pass rear valve cover(dirty air out). One side goes to intake manifold vacuum with a check valve. Other side goes to turbo or SC inlets for suction when in boost also with a check valve. Then I have the clean side separator on the oil cap going to the end of one of the air filters(clean air into crankcase).

I've done 3.48", 3.33", 3.125", and about to do 2.95". The 3.33" got me 11.7, the 3.125" got 11.7 but was slipping badly at the track. When the engine got hot the belt would stretch. The new 2.95" has tungsten coating to help prevent slip.

None of the pulleys survived extraction except the 3.125" one. For that one I took a 3 jaw puller and grinded a longer slope for the tooth. That allowed it to get between the pulley and bracket.

The tungsten one is from 928 Motorsports, but is wider so it will require an exact spacer which I'll be doing soon.
