Back on topic: I received the can and breather today, nice stuff. Locating a place to mount it. On the front fits best. will post pics mounted and plumbed when done. I have to get some hose to finish. there is no way to overpressurize the system as the oil breather and can have a great bypass to let out pressure. there is a quality one way boost valve in the can too. more later

some pics of the install, will drive and see how it performs... the breather and the can have a one way valve venting pressure, no unmetered air entering system...

Very cool. Does this breather work with the existing CC in the IPF kit.

Yes it will , it vents only, no fresh coming in. My system uses the IPF can as a inlet can only, fresh air enters through that can and will catch moisture coming in or out freeley, the new can is all about the intake, it draws from the intake manifold, there is a check valve to prevent backflow and pulls air through the motor. there is no way to pressurize the engine and it now breathes.....

OK, I'm confused. Are we thinking the IPF system alone is less than adequate?

What are the potential benefits of additional cans?

I can never leave anything alone, the IPF system does a great job venting, but offers no real fresh air circulation, that's why I changed mine up. I will say that some of my idle issues and occasional stalling have been reduced because of this setup. It feels "smoother" overall. Perhaps the added air entering the intake under vacuum helps the engine idle better. All the incoming air is metered and there is no way to overpressurize the system.

For whatever reason, it would help me if I could see the layout scribbled on the back of a napkin to follow what and where everything is.

I saw that before. Sorry, I just still don't get it. I'd probably just have to see it in person. I don't get what I'm seeing in the pictures that have been posted, and I don't really understand where you are connecting things based on the diagram. Partly because I know there are/were other connections whether stock or now, supercharged.

Line from intake to ipf can, one cap is plugged on 3 port can and the other line to the rt valve cover as an air inlet. no check valve here. The only reason a can is used here is 1. it was already mounted and there, 2. it will offer some protection from any unwanted moisture entering the system from the intake in the rain and any venting oil oil vapors entering the sc inlet. This is your fresh air inlet.

line from left valve cover to inlet on second can,
line from 2nd can on a one way boost proof valve to the intake manifold for suction to draw air through the crankcase. when in boost this closes off.

This second catch can has a one way vent on top to relieve pressure in case there is positive pressure present.

I added a oil breather cap that will also only allow venting of pressure to be sure there is no way to pressurize the system.

So Sycraft are they going to come up with some sort of kit for this. This is very similar to what J&M performance did to mine, minus the oil cal pressure relief.

not real pleased with the bracket, but it works..... It came with the can and I wanted it in. May look at fabbing a custom one...
