Keep an eye on that transparent hose i dont think it will handle the heat. If it pinches or collapses you will pressurize your crank

I would have just capped the line on the intake all together and just went catch can setup with both the vent there at the PCV and the one that goes before the TB.

Hi Balto, could you explain what you're saying, the the reason it's a better method. Thanks

So, in stock form, a lot of oil flows into the intake. Like, a lot. Enough to puddle on the bottom of the intake.

The way you have it set up right now, oil vapors still get into the intake (granted, not much) but still some.

The best way (in my opinion) is this way.

There are two valve cover ventilation holes that dump into the intake. One is from the PCV directly into the intake, and the other connects to the air box, just above the air filter.

You get a catch can like the one I will post below, and run a line to the PCV and the line that goes above the intake to it. This completely isolates the crankcase ventilation from the air intake, but allows the vapors to escape because it's a vent-to-atmosphere type catch can. Also, don't forget to cap the original PCV line that is on the intake.

[Edit]: I originally deployed this style catch can on my sand rail which has a 1600cc VW engine. The stock system put the oil vapors into the intake, and in the winter, the oil that was getting into the intake was thickening up and causing all sorts of issues. Ever since I put the catch can on there, I haven't had a single problem and the intake is squeaky clean.

likely isn't allowable if you have any visual inspections and emissions testing still. PCV isn't supposed to be vented to atmosphere by typical emissions standards. not that it really hurts much, it's oil vapor, not so much fuel vapor.

Depends. It would be legal here in Richmond, where there is no emissions test. Well-at least it would not be detected. Probably not legal if EPA or whatever from Washington knew.

I suspect it would not pass in most metro areas where there are emissions tests. Honda did it the way they did to help meet emissions levels. Crankcase vapors are almost certainly considered a pollutant or they would not be handled they way they are. Many serious car owners would not like to dump crankcase vapors into their intake if it were legally avoidable.

You might get away with it, but that doesn't make it legal. JMHO

Race cars almost always vent to atmosphere, but there are currently no regulations governing this. This is the major reason that catch tanks and venting systems are available on the internet and otherwise.
