Oil Catch Can

Not sure if i'm posting this in the right place so mods feel free to move if needed.

I want to install an oil catch can on my 2.0T and I'm just wondering

1. Can I use any catch can or do I need a specific one? (I think I can use anyone that will fit in the engine bay).

2. Is there any maintenance on this like draining it or does it just recirculate?

I've been reading the Catch Can DIY but it looks like that's on a manual transmission and I have an automatic. So how would i install a breather on the passenger's side sine I only have that 1 line going to the intake right now?

Someone correct me if im wrong, but any catch can should work. To do one on the passenger side, it would need an inlet and outlet. These will need to be drained and i do mine every oil change. The driver's side is usually where all the oil is at. i usually get oil to come out every other change, but not much.

On:
PRW Base Tune, K&N Typhoon, Synapse BOV, Ark Downpipe and Testpipe, AGP Catch Can and Breather, TWM STS, TiC bushings, ZT-2 Wideband AFR and Boost sensor

To Come:
Can't make up my mind so who knows.

That's kind of what i was expecting. Thanks for the reply.

Any thoughts on the passenger's side? Especially since the Manual's have 2 hoses to the intake and autos have 1?

Do NOT fiddle with the second hose (the one connected to the metal pipe that wraps your engine). That's part of your braking system.

I only have 1 hose going to my intake though (automatic transmission). It connects near the oil cap.

Here is what my engine bay looks like. The hose I'm referring to is the blue one on the left going to the SRI.

You only have one hose and that's the one you put the breather/ catch can on. The other hose you see (on manual transmission) is for the brake booster but the automatic cars have an external brake system.

So if i put the 1 hose I have to the breather how do i get a hose to the intake? Do I put a hose from the breather to the intake?

Do not want to sound mean or anything but... its pretty obvious that if you remove the hose from the intake to plug it in your catch-can, you need another hose from your can to the intake...

You put the breather on the engine (passenger side) and you plug both holes in the intake.

I disagree with the install directions. From EXPERIENCE, you run the hose from the valve cover to the catch can and then from the catch can to the intake. The intake "pulls" the oil from the valve cover, then catch can then seperates the liquid from the air, and the air returns back to the intake. Most people avoid this because they don't want the hot air going back into the intake. By just running the line and adding a filter, you're relying on the engine to essentially "push" the fluid into the can, not that it would hurt, but I'm sure the engineering behind the reason outways the "performance" gains seen by adding a filter.

You can do it either way. I have a breather on the intake side and have the catch can go from valve.vover to can then to the origional line tje valve cover hose would go to. Any should wofk. I know mine works so I can recommend that way.

I agree with your method and it's the way i'm installing my second CC.

I just said put the breather on the engine since it's the way most people go and it's the cheapest.

I would agree except if I put only a breather on I dont have a way to connect a hose from it back to the intake like a I would with a catch can.

I apologize if i'm a moron but I still dont understand how if I put JUST a breather on the intake side how I can run a hose back. My understanding is the breather alone does not have an outlet like the catch can would. anyone with a pic of the engine bay on an auto with this installed? Maybe i'm missing the visual.

If you're using a breather, there's no hose that goes back to the intake. Both spots on the intake need to be plugged.

Thanks all for the comments and help.
