if a catch can was to be used, i would run one hose from the black box on the back of the block and another from the vc to a vented catch can. thats how i'd do it.

this would illiminate the pcv system all together.

my plans are to pull the black box completely, get a fitting to plug that hole and adapt to an AN fitting, run that line to a vented can, and run 2 AN fittings off the valve cover to the vented can.

Exactly what I'm doing! Using Lowes/HD clear braided hose...doing it up straight DIY style!

I hate catchcans.

I ran so many different setups. Simple NPT fitting in place of the PCV (3/8" NPT fitting threads right in, no drilling/tapping required) and running that to a vented catchcan is the best way, IMHO - which is pretty much a fucking requirement in every catchcan thread because everyone is dead certain their way is right.

I actually tapped two fittings onto my blackbox at the pcv location, and at the oposite side. and ran them to the catch can at the bottom. And I for two fittings on my valve cover. But if you're building a motor, I heard stock pcv system is a must to put a good load on the engine. Correct me if im wrong.

I agree, if you can run the PVC to help break-in and seat the rings on a fresh rebuild. I did, and now is about the time for me to upgrade to the catch can I think.

Good stuff Rushi =] I like the idea of the single hose from the stock location, it looks cleaner and I'd imagine it would be enough. I think an additional hose only adds marginally better results.

For the rear of your engine, check this out:





D-SERIES BLOCK PLUG ADAPTER!!!!! - Honda-Tech

They also have all kinds of fittings and hose, in case you just want to order it all at once. Also, if you need me to export that stuff for you let me know, I've been wanting to get one of those block adaptors as well =]
