That's just for the fresh air side since I couldn't get a 5/8th check valve. The fresh air line branches off to the catch can and to a check valve, then combines again to the intake tube with a line going off that to the other catch can. When the intake manifold is under vacuum it by-passes the catch can on the fresh air side. Under boost is vents through the catch cans on both sides into the intake tube. The check valve on the fresh air line is to make sure it goes through the catch can when venting. It looks more complicated than it is, when I get the correct parts it will flow more naturally.

If you are talking about the wire looms below, that is for my DRL harness I made myself, I have a non-RS but I got the halo's and fogs to come on just like a RS.

I'll finally contribute. Got almost everything set up. Just need to connect the fresh line to the 1/2" fitting on the elite can.
Then see about getting 1/2" line for the SC inlet to the 1le separator. (Need to also go back and put the manifold plug bracket back on, to be on the safe side.

Just ordered 2x 3/8th AN male weld-in fittings. Going to have 3 lines on the intake tube for the pcv system, 2x 3/8th lines for venting, and the stock 5/8th line for fresh air.

So far the setup is working, the dual can caught stuff, I cleaned the clean side last night to see how it looks today. It is a pain to check though since I have to pull the entire can out.

Hasn't stalled yet, even with the tune that stalled all the time. The idle dive still happens. Think the only solution for the idle diving is to put nitrous on the car.

I may try a blow through MAF as opposed to the draw through, just need to retune the whole thing. for the idle issue

How long between emptying ? Looks like a lot of condensation mixture.

I drilled 2x 3/8th holes in the intake tube and JB welded 2 8-an weld-on fittings in place. Getting away from the multiple T-connections, looked too ghetto.

Second picture is of the intake manifold from last night. I am hoping this oil got in there from when I had the clean side running straight to the intake tube and the dirty side couldn't vent because of the single exit check valve.

A short update, PCV system is running great. My dirty side has been catching oil but my clean side the can is dry, but the media in the separator part is wet, so I think its slowly accumulating oil. I've only been able to drive it 3 days, cold weather sucks.

Now I feel like I can join the conversation. I did plenty of research and discussions with my brother on the topic. I'm trying to figure out what the worry would be (negatives) on the setup I drew up (I think it was mentioned that it works but what else is trying to be fixed)?

The separator should work all year without issue even in colder climates (like NY right now...) as long as you properly allow your engine to warm up every time you drive the vehicle.

Is the problem that the separator cannot effectively catch enough oil under boost on the clean side when it runs in reverse of the normal flow under regular vacuum? And the check valve on the catch can will make sure the flow doesn't go in reverse out of the intake manifold.

Please rip this apart. I'm trying to figure out the fault here or if I missed something in a previous post

Thanks!

That is the base idea, get the vacuum in the intake manifold when not in boost. One thing I would look at is some kind of relief for the catch can under boost. The crankcase pressure will build up in the catch can and may damage your check valve (did on mine). Also, if no relief is there you could seep oil out of the valve cover.

I'm typing from my phone so if I missed anything I will answer tonight.

Yeah definitely not good. Is there that much pressure with this system? I've been trying to research something similar to a blowoff valve to put somewhere to relieve excess pressure buildup to avoid the problem you just mentioned. The MM solutions can with pressure relief valve(if it works) seems like the easiest solution. If not, then placing a pressure relief valve after the catch can on the dirty side so its free of oil. But I'm wondering if the catch can would get backed up with the high pressure going into it or if it would allow enough flow to effectively release the pressure

There is a lot of pressure at WOT when you add a supercharger or turbo. If you use a dual exit port catch can you can have the supercharger inlet provide a vacuum source when you are in boost, relieving the pressure from the crankcase.

I have the dual exit port, so I don't know how the MM cans are in person.

Go with the Mighty Mouse, the boost proof can has a great vent. any positive pressure and it vents freely, allowing no fresh air in. Several other members have now tried it, all love the can so far.... maybe they will chime in.

I have the Mighty Mouse also connected up similar to the oem system which was recommended by MM. So far it's been catching really well and has cut down on the water.

IPF S/C PCV Fix

That's awesome to hear. Has anyone tested to see if it vents enough of the pressure out of the system to render it safe for the engine?

Now the next question is what to use for a plug on stock clean side inlet if I use a separator? I found a site that sells different plugs deigned for it. Offhand does anyone know the size of the clean side hole? Unless one of our vendors has these, I'm looking at something like this: http://www.tdperformance.com/Valve-Cover-Caps-and-Plugs

Or

if it vents enough for a full blown V8 producing over 1000 hp, it will surely be enough for our V6...

Point well taken. But anyone can claim anything (not saying he's full of...excrement). My curiosity was if there were any specific measurements taken to prove its effectiveness. I'm sure it works, but how well does it work
