    running dual catch can set up

    ive heard the best way to run catch cans is using dual catch cans for our cars. can someone please draw up a diagram on paint or something on which hose goes where for a dual catch can set up? thanks.

    im planning to run dual weapon r universal catch cans. the design is like greddy, cusco and most ebay ones. does it matter which port is the inlet and outlet?

    I tried dual, but we literally have no room in the engine bay. I use one for the breather, since that goes through the entire intake tract. The PCV valve hose ends right at the manifold, so I figured there was no reason to have one there.

    which breather? would you mind posting a picture? how much oil did it catch for a period of time for your car?

    The one on the rear valve cover to intake.

    My setup is different from yours, I have no intake pipes. But regardless, it depends on the amount of blow by you have. I don't accumulate a whole lot.

    so 1 hose from the port of the can should be hooked up to the rear vc breather, and the other hose from the other port of the can goes to my rear intake pipe?

    wow there is literally NO ROOM for a catch can at all. the only way that the can will fit in the engine bay is to remove the washer fluid resevoir which i just did. but then i cant get a bracket that bolts anywhere. so i just decided to zip tie the can to the battery tie down. unless i get the mini battery kit from stm or move the battery to the trunk... but other than that i guess the zip ties will do for now.

    also the can is very close to the battery and the neg term cable is touching the can. that wont be a problem right?

    EDIT: if i remove one of the strut tower nuts and put a bracket there and then put the nut back on, then the cc can be mounted next to the k&n filter. will doing that affect the struts or anything?

    I assume that the amount of air pushing through the heads is not just blow by...but VSS as well or am I totally wrong?

    Mine is mounted over by the fuse box. I feel like it would fit with the k&n there, but since I have to intake pipes, I have plenty of room now. Having it touch the neg battery terminal probably wont be an issue, since it's just a ground. Doing the strut tower nut idea shouldn't be an issue either.

    I supposed it could be from the VSS a tiny amount... but not a lot. The combustion chamber is sealed during combustion, and the only time it could happen is during intake during boost, but it would be small.

    ok cool, so the main source of it is air pushing past the pistons and comming back up through the oil and water passages?
