No the elite does not come with the elbow for the intake manifold. You need to order the whole line from elbow back to the passenger side manifold. I have one on order from the dealer since I couldn't find the part number anywhere. When it comes in Ill post it up. Should be here today but snow storm on east coast delayed it.

I just looked and couldn't find the elbow piece either. Make sure you get the O-rings so you don't get any vacuum leaks.

This may be getto but adding a clear fuel filter before the check valve will help reduce the oil induction.

I don't have the IPF S/C, but even I appreciate you posting this up.

Sometimes I wonder if the issue with the can filling with water doesn't have to do with where a person lives? (causing moisture build up) Or perhaps the type of driving or duration of driving that causes it?

With likely hundreds of these kits sold, if there was a large issue with water in the can you'd think we'd see more of this on here, or IPF would have taken a look by now. Like SIXJAK states...his seems to be fine as long as he drains it every few weeks.

But I remember another person with the IPF S/C kit and the same issue just like MagnumForce, so I know it isn't just him.

Really glad you posted this up though. I think it will be beneficial!

Thanks. Too bad my drawing skills suck. I drove my car 17 miles one way to work 4 times a day, plenty of time to heat the oil up. Its been humid here though when I had the old can on. I don't think the IPF can is good for long term. I would have a pool of oil in my throttle body after a while, had to clean it thinking it was causing my car to stall.

I've been thinking about how the clean side should be if you put a catch can on it. I would probably have someway of bypassing the can if air is going from the intake tube to the crankcase. If air is being drawn out of the crankcase then go through the catch can.

I will need to see how my fresh air line looks after a trip down the drag strip.

I am surprised that six isn't having the moisture build up. I haven't seen one yet that isn't catching a lot of moisture with the IPF setup utilizing their can or any other brand. In the winter I empty the can every 2 tanks of gas. I empty out just about cup of water/oil/gas mixture.
I am going back to the setup with two lines vacuum lines on the dirty side and a RX/1le separator on the clean side. The separator will grab any residue if the clean side goes into a vacuum mode.
I think GM finally got it right with the addition of the separator.

part # 12616915 is the tube with the elbow for the intake on a LLT motor, 12616908 and 12616909 are the 2 orings for the tube...

12638437 is the tube and 12616909 is the oring, for the LFX

Great thread, Going to try the setup like Nutt, but with the GM separator.

As for my IPF can, there was a few ounces of water and moisture inside the can, little to NO oil. Only checked it once since the install, but with taking it off i'll see what i find.

Didn't have to wait for a trip down the drag strip, I need 2 catch cans. Took off the intake tube pipe in front of the supercharger inlet and a pool of oil in the supercharger inlet. Going to see about ordering a dual check valve can from elite engineering. Too bad this is going to cut into the funds for my wife's driveshaft, she needs that to beat up some Camaro V6's that talk crap but don't show up at the track.

Going to draw up a schematic of how I'm going to do the final setup, will post it tonight.

Looking forward to it. I actually got a couple 1/2" fittings with no check valves , just use one for the intake manifold. Then two regular fittings for the fresh line and dirty line.
