i bought an agp oil catch can, the one made for the evo x. and of course it is installed on the ventilation/breather side.(passenger side). but iv seen other people with another catch can on the driver said (recirculation can). should i do that too? and would another agp oil catch can work in the different spot?

i know for a fact the oil catch can is needed on the one side. but is the other side absolutely neccesary?

My install pics are there... Im the only one with a catch can mounted in this location that I know of. The Greddy can is much bigger than most of the ones made specifically for our car. I ran coolant hoses off the pcv and recirc-to-intake side of valve cover into a brass T union then into the can, then ran the other side of the can to the intake. I plugged the intake manifold bung.

there are two ports on the valve cover that release the excess pressures. As you are looking at the block, there is one facing you and one on the upper right hand corner.
The one facing you is the PCV and the one on the right is usually recirculated to the air intake.

You can take these two ports that relieve the pressures, combine into one unioned hose and plug into the catch can.
The other side of the catch can needs to be run back into the air intake. (or you can vta/use a breather and be kinda nasty.)

The remaining bung is on the intake manifold. You will need to plug it.

OOoooHHHhhh okay i gotcha now. would plugging that remaining bung on the intake mani have an harmful effect?

okay so lemme sum this up. correct me if im wrong. the catch can will have only 2 bung, theres gonna be a total of three hoses going into the can right?
but im gonna have to get it so all 2 of the hose connects to eachother and into the catch can? then i just plug off the bung on the intake mani

i get confused too quickly. if its not a bother can you take a picture of the hose on the driver side and how you routed it to the catch can?

i can see it looping over the uicp into the catch can. but is the other end going to the intake pipe? and if it is going into the intkae pipe does this acts as a vacuum?

the one coming from exhaust side of can is running parallel behind the one you see looping over the uicp to the T junction. It goes directly to the air intake, straight shot.

I have them zip tied to the strut bar and will probably need some thermal tape soon just to ensure they dont drop down (highly unlikely) and touch the exhaust mani.
