Cause it doesn't like you Will... it just doesn't like anyone anymore...

j/k.
Pic's don't show up for me either, probably the links went bad.

Just so you guys know, I was installing my Injen Cold-side intercooler pipe.. and it was coated with oil and the joints were filled with it.
A catch can is seriously one of the first things you should do. In a few weeks when my mechanic comes back we're going to pull the intercooler and flush it. The throttle plate also has some oil built up on it.

hahah funny some one's got jokes, but quick question doe it matter if i get the same CC for bothsides? i already got the one but after reading this topic a little further im defiently going to get another one for the passenger side. The one i have is an ebay one (of couse) with a screw in the bottom of it i guess for ez cleaning or w/e

I have two ebay cans, one for each side and it doesn't seem to matter at all. Just don't put a catch can between your brake booster hose and the intake. Unless you have an A/T in that case you don't have to worry about it at all.

I don't know. Mine did not have anything. The problem is two 1/2" hoses side by side is a tight fit on the eBay ones I got. I used a thin piece of 3/8" clear hose that I then slipped the 1/2" hose over on the nipple. I cut the clear hose just long enough to fit over the entire 3/8" nipple.

ok yea i think i got it the only hose that fits that nipple is the 3/8 so by placing the 3/8 on that nipple and sliding it inside the 1/2 its almost as if you have the 1/2 on the nipple instead of the 3/8's right?

well since the pics didnt show up my friend and I did it our own way...
got the same catch can, however we just use the blue hose it came with instead of buying heater hose. we plugged the hose on the IM and ran the blue hose from the other one to the catch can which we mounted on an existing hole from the stock intake box (gotta have an aftermarket intake that doesn't have a box for this) then just ran the stock hose we took off from the CC down towards the wall so it goes no where. it's not exactly necessary to have the hose go into the cc and back into the IM so we did it this way... I'll take some pics later and post them up too. it will be easier to follow lol.

are you talking about the turbo side or the intake manifold side?

on the intake manifold you need to use both lines to run it back into the pcv valve.

As for the turbo side, you dont need to run both lines.

Is heater hose the right product for the application? I've read online that it can't be used if there's any oil/gas as the rubber will basically be eaten away.

intake manifold side. we just blocked off the one going into the IM. my friend says it's not necessary since it's just putting fumes back into the IM so we just let them out in the atmosphere. it should be even cleaner.
