Here is another one of my crappy drawings. Its hard to draw on this Surface, but its a nice little feature. The problem I have with my current setup is that the vacuum is so strong from the supercharger I'm drawing oil straight out of the clean side tube. Going to try this setup when I can.

This setup uses 2 Elite Engineering V2 catch cans. One is a single check valve output, the other is a dual check valve output. The dual one will go on the passenger side, the inlet (top of the can) goes to the passenger side valve cover. 1 of the outlets goes to the intake manifold, the other goes to the intake tube in front of the supercharger.

The single check valve catch can will go on the drivers side. The inlet connects to the drivers side valve cover, the outlet goes to the intake tube in front of the supercharger. This side will require 2 T connectors and a second check valve. The line that goes from the valve cover will branch off, one line going to the catch can, the second going to a check valve that doesn't allow air to the intake tube. These 2 lines will reconnect to each other after the catch can and check valve. Then the line will connect to the dirty side line and to the intake tube.

When the intake manifold is under vacuum, the air will go from the intake tube, bypass the catch can and into the crankcase. The dirty air will then go through the catch can and into the intake manifold. The dual check valve will prevent air from bypassing the crankcase being sucked in from the intake tube straight to the intake manifold.

During boost the crankcase will vent through both catch cans and into the intake tube.

I'm going to have to ask Elite Engineering how their can will work with reverse flow, that will eliminate having to try to find T connectors and a check valve.

Do yourself a favor and look into a 1LE separator instead of the clean side can. This is what it's made for.

Hey skycraft on your schamadic you have you your passger side going to your intake inlet , do you aslo have a t connecter tied in to your Ipf can aswell ?

( oh and welcome to Texas )

I use the word metered air as I am keeping my PCV system close loop as is oem. There are no breathers in the system bringing in air that has not been input by the MAF. Bringing in extra air not metered by the MAF can cause unstable idle and other performance problems.

Going to do some testing but there may need to be a way to vent the passenger side valve cover under boost. I changed my spark plugs last night and found traces of oil on the passenger side ones. Don't know if its from oil ingestion or oil is seeping through the seals under boost.

Going to temp install the IPF can on the clean side in the engine bay to prevent condensation. I think the last setup I drew would be best but is expensive. Especially since I want to do all braided and AN fittings. Make the engine bay look good since idiots at car shows think the Centri supercharger is an A/C unit.

Hey guys, this is news to me. I will look into possibly redesigning the catch can, there are hundreds of these kits installed world wide and seems to be a pretty small number of complaints. I will gladly look into it though.

Andy, the can supplied with the system offer very little area between the input ports and vacuum for oil mist to be caught. I still believe the Saikou Michi offer the best in can setup and the APEX is also good. But it is still the PCV routing that is also cause the issue that we see. A return to an oem setup where we draw metered air after the MAF into the driver side valve cover and provide vacuum to the passenger side valve cover under normal running using induction vacuum and new air input tube vacuum during WOT.
This type setup seems to have benefits to both the tune and elimination of the excess moisture being caught.

Nutt, when do you expect to get your separator?

I hope to get mine tomorrow.

For some reason my IPF can was full of water after 4 days of driving, every day after work I would look under the car to see where the line was. It gets old after a while, especially when the temps drop down below freezing. I also got the new catch can to fix the stalling problems I was having.

I looked at getting a 1LE separator but after looking at quite a few logs, I think I found the reason for my high knock retard suddenly. The log before my current PCV setup had no knock retard until 6000 RPM's, after it started at 2500 RPM's. The passenger side needs to be under vacuum just like the driver side it looks like. I need to order a dual check valve can anyways, so I will use the single can on the drivers side. Going to be fun ordering all the AN parts from JEGS.

If you are going to supply vacuum to both valve cover sides and have a can on each side the PCV flow direction will oscillate from passenger side to drivers side depending on which side has a higher vacuum level and one of the cans will be in reverse flow all the time. If both vacuums are about the same level wouldn't there be no evacuation taking place ?
Got to say this is a great conversation !

Got mine in ! Problem is my upper induction elbow to generate the vacuum was broken when I installed the IPF system. The vacuum line with elbow and 2 seals are on order and should be here this weekend.
The weather here is not cooperating as it's 5F today and my garage heater is not working. I'll try and get in my buddies garage to make the mod.
