Catch can

I installed an Elite Engineering catch can on my 2015 Camaro SS. There are 2 vacume exhausts but only one opening on the catch can that relieve pressure from the engine. Does anyone know if I can put a y connector and direct both sources of crankcase ventilation to the catch can? What temperature should the y connector be able to withstand?

Not sure of what your referring to, the E2 and E2-X systems utilize 2 separate crankcase evacuation suction sources. The intake manifold vacuum for idle, light cruise, and deceleration, and the secondary evac source is the area just in front of the throttle body for acceleration and WOT. The checkvalves automatically open and close as needed to always default to the strongest suction source eliminating crankcase pressure and providing full time evacuation no matter the driving mode.

Give us more information on your car, any mods, etc.

But you NEVER want to vent allowing pressure to be present in the crankcase. Use the billet cleanside separator for the passenger side valve cover for the incoming filtered MAF metered air to flush and make up for the foul oil and contaminate laden vapor being sucked out (evacuated) from the drivers side valve cover and or valley cover PCV barb.

On all Elite cans, center fitting/port is the inlet from the crankcase. Outer's are always the outlets from the can to the evacuation suction source(s).
