You have the turbo-side located right above the turbo. That would be the hottest place in the engine bay, I believe. Turbo-side does not accumulate much unless you spend a lot of time in boost.

The S-M can could be one of the best out there. For the money you cannot beat them. Go to their web site and look at how they are made. Once you see what is not being sucked into your intake tract you will be glad you installed one. On the turbo-side you do not need a full-sized can, but that does not hurt anything. My little JEGS oil separator works fine on my turbo -side.

I was thinking about running just a single setup and not a dual. Is that still alright?

In a single setup you would do just the intake-side. The sides cannot be combined. Although there is little oil that comes from the turbo-side, if you take off your air intake you will note that it will have some oil inside of it. The oil from your turbo-side is actual engine oil. On the intake-side it is blow-by gases, water and other crap. Any catch can is a huge help.

I ran single in my SRT4 and I didn't have any oil in the intake until just recently. I realized the way the AEM designed the CAI was stupid so I fixed the way the vent tubing was routed so that it worked properly. I'm now getting oil in the intake which is causing KR (knock retard) and killing my tune. I'll be putting a catch can on that side this weekend.

Not sure what everyone else does, but I'd recommend using two if you can. They don't have the be expensive, just make sure they seal and that you use proper hose so it doesn't collapse. Just because it's solid when cold doesn't mean it'll be that way when hot.

Just my $0.02

Ah I see, hmm maybe running two might be the best solution...

There are lots of threads with pictures. As stated above we need to use closed cans to maintain the engine seal.

So what I've gathered is that the catch can I should use is going to be the Saikou Michi, and that I really need it from intake side but not from turbo side? Does anyone have pictures of this installed on a BK2 or possibly a link to an install video? The original link doesn't seem to be working. I appreciate it in advance. I've driven 30k miles since buying my Genesis and am about to get tuned in April. This is one of the last things I need to do. I take it that the saikou michi is better than the Greddy??

Install procedure is the same for all 2.0Ts regardless of year. For ATs, they have an extra heat shield that needs a slight modification.

Yeah, it's right where the can gets mounted. Some people have it, some don't, so I'm not sure what the requirement was for Hyundai to put it up there other than you have to have an automatic.

just went through all 21 pages before I got tired of reading lol....

I'm going to install a baffled non-vented OCCs X2 soon but i'm going to start with the driver side PCV side first and i'll post pics of my install as I go.

Lots of good info in here.

recommended you start with passenger side PCV first, not the vent (driver side) if you're 3.8.
