You don't need 2 catch cans. You only need to hook up the 5/8" nipple on the drivers side valve cover. The other 2 small nipples on the secondary/ upper valve covers are for vacuum only. Little to no oil ever makes it up through the baffles in to those small valve covers. I can't believe that newb company made a catch can for 3 inputs lol.

They aren't for vacuum per say. They are the oil vapor to get to the highest point and connected to the intake so when the engine is creating a vacuum it pulls some of the vapor out of the crankcase. Go drive your car for 20 minutes and pull the breather hoses off and look at how much oil vapor is coming out of it. The best thing is to run a line from both valve covers to a Y and then into the catch can and back to the intake.

I have, and their is no vapor. That escapes through the larger 5/8" nipple. As a matter of fact when I removed the secondary valve covers they were dry as a bone.

that wouldn't make sense because where would the oil come from when the breather covers leak, which these cars are notorious for.

Might look dry because oil(fluid) dosent get in there but the valor does. If you have no vapor then don't worry about a catch can.

I think the 5/8" line main purpose is too allow air to be drawn into the valve cover to offset the effect of vacumn from the PVC process? They are normally connected to the intake to capture the oil vapor escaping back out the hose during low rpm.

I don't think so, because it is plumbed right in to the throttle body.

The 5/8" line on the drivers side valve cover is plumbed into the air intake before the TB (ambient air pressure).
The PVC system is after the TB pulling engine vacuum.

I got my catch can for $30.
Cleaned and polished the internals then added one of these. No more oil gunk back into the S/C and TB. No CEL and drives perfect with the S/C wining like a *****
