Start first hose at drivers side rear valve cover and run it to the center port of catch can. Second hose from outer port of catch can to inlet of maggie. Third hose from passenger side front of valve cover to air intake port.

I see now... They spliced the old hose going to the supercharger from the valve cover to the hose on the catch can. then the other hose on the catch can goes back to where you removed the original OEM hose...... My problem is that my catch can must be a cheap knockoff, because it just has two hoses and you can blow either way on them.. No inlet or outlet....I would assume that the oil is actually running in the tube and not in the air and when it hits the can it drop to the bottom and just air is sucked out of the other side.....

We carry inline one way checkvalves you can simply add to prevent any back flow. They are positive closing unlike a PCV valve & are configured to meter the correct amount of flow as a PCV valve would.
