Default Catch Can Selection

Getting ready to buy a catch can and would love some recommendations, not sure if I really need one with the external breather. Seems messy and doesn't look as clean on the install. Street driven and probably no more than 15lbs of boost on average.

Two right side valve covers each with an oil cap thread to 10an adapter. A 10an hose form each to a Moroso can stuffed with steel wool. No issues, been to 20 psi.

I run a mightymouse can setup draft style. Really cut down on the fumes at idle from engine bay.

Pulls from driver side VC and breather on the pax side VC. Suction is gotten via a hose attachment to filter on turbo inlet.

Here is mine. I should have taken pics when I built it, but it's 2.5 exhaust pipe with a cap on each end. Then there are dividers or baffles inside and the center where the hoses go in is stuffed with stainless steel scrub pads. Still need to throw some paint on it

Cheap *** amazon one for me. No steel wool, just goes through a small course screen before entering the can. It can be unscrewed and wool can be added if need be. Check valve on the intake side to prevent pressuring the can. Works great.


Excuse the comically long mounting bracket. One day ill make something better.

Big fan of the Mighty Mouse PCV catch can here.
Works great, zero fumes and keeps my intake squeaky clean, plus David is always very helpful with any questions I have.

Another vote for the mighty mouse pvc can. I tried alot of other stuff but once i got my mighty mouse can have never had an issue since. And have never had to drain the can in 20,000 miles.

MMS here too on my turbo stain as well as my silverAYdo. Follow installation instructions, drain as needed. Both work flawlessly and wouldn't run either without his can.
I need one on my beater Honda but just can't make myself "mod" a 1.7L Honda Civic

Venting would defeat the purpose of pulling a vacuum on the crankcase with a PCV/catchcan setup.
