different catch can question

I've had my RX catch can on for a little while now. It catches a decent amount of oil for the mileage that Lola is driven.
However, under the hood this weekend taking some measurements for possible future projects I noticed the big ugly canister on the right side valve cover that has the tube connected to the intake.
Is this just another way of getting PCV fumes to the intake tract.
Not sure how I overlooked this for so long.

Has anyone else plumbed this into their catch can. If so, what does your setup look like. If I'm going to make underhood changes I want to keep it tidy.

What you are referring to is the fresh air inlet side of the system. That line allows air into the engine unless you are at wide open throttle, then you'll get some reverse flow. Personally, I'm not a fan of any drain-back style catch can, so if you are having issues with oil from that line, I suggest adding a secondary catch can. Do NOT route them together through a single catch can.

Best regards,

Tyler

Thanks for the info. Looks like I have a new mod on the future mods list.

Tyler, the RX is a drain-back style can, correct?

I have a Apex catch can and I love it! I put it on less then 100 miles ago and I've caught a lot of gunk so far!

Depends on what one you're talking about. The clean side is a drain back (into the engine) where the dirty side gets emptied into waste.

I prefer an Elite engineering can for both the dirty and clean side.
