Here is where i got mine. It comes with the bracket, fittings, and instructions. I cant remember if the hoses came with it or if I got a short section of hose from the auto parts store. I had already deleted my EGR so it bolted right up to my passenger side cylinder head. Havent had any smoking or oil burning issues since installing it.

Just ask for some Oil/fuel line hose at your local auto parts store, they'll know what your talking about. You will probably need 3/8" ID oil/fuel hose, unless your instructions say otherwise.
IMO, Take a hard look at the RX cans(I run one in my car), they seem to do a better job of trapping the oil vapors than a lot of the small CC do.

Why are you filtering your fresh air line?? That's not where the oil gets sucked from.

Seemed wierd to me too, but that was how it said to hook it up in the instructions and all of the smoking out of the exhaust and oil residue in the throttle body/intake has stopped. That just figures. I swapped the A4 for a T56 in my driveway on jack stands and had no issues, but messed up the damn catch can. Sometimes its the smallest things that get you.

There is some oil that will pass through that line, especially if you are really hammering on it. I have a can for the fresh air line and one for the valley cover - the valley cover can catches a lot more than the other, but the fresh air line certainly isn't dry (at least not on mine).

I'll probably just put a "T" in the line and run both through the same catch can. Cover all the bases.

No, this won't work

(all this does is directly suck air from the TB instead of the crankcase).
