Hose from valve cover to catch and other hose to inlet on turbo/intake tube.

Make sure to buy a catch can with a baffle system. Not one of those ebay specials that is a empty can.

or you can buy a cheap ebay one and fill the inside with baffle materials and or steel shot/shavings.



RIP silver car. You will be missed.

^Those do work better then just a simple can but start doing some research on the matter.

I spent about 3 months researching them.

The ebay can with home made baffle materials does work decent but the more oil particles you can trap the better. Oil in your intake causes your overall octane rating to lower a fair bit. The problem with the ebay cans and many on the market is the in and out tubes are in the same level so really there is nothing making the vapor go through the actual baffling, it can quite easily just bypass it. The Saikou michi can is quite cheap and from my research one of the best for the cost.
