Yeah, I think I really need to get one like this, but I'll wait until you "guinea pig" it for me.
Wait a minute....it has TWO fittings on it? Shouldn't it only need ONE? Or are you going to run the hose back into the CAI?

Nope, my CC is good, but you really need two to get rid of all the oil that goes where we don't want it. I have the PCV to throttle body setup, but I will need one for the other sidewhere everyone hooks up a breather to. If I use this exact one I will cap off one side of the catch can and simply let it act as a breather to the right hand side of the valve cover. I will also then cap off the CAI as well where it used to hook up. This will catch any oil that comes out where the CAI inlet was that woul suck up oil into the turbo, but still allow it to breath. Here's another one. It's a little bigger, but does exactly what I was just talking about. http://www.jegs.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/ProductDisplay?prrfnbr=2462&prmenbr=361 It's personal preference here. They both work exactly the same. I will get mine soon and let you all know. That's why I was getting oil on my intercooler pipe. You need two catch cans with a breather on the right if your facing the inside of the engine. (CAI side). Later, Chris

Ok, I ordered mine. It's the one with the single inlet. The smaller one would have worked too, but I didn't want to mess with capping it off. Now I don't have to make a breather and put an inline catch can on the drivers side of the valve cover. No more oil in the turbo for me.

the one with two inlets is perfect for our motors. Think about it.

1 for oil outlet on passenger side, 1 for oil outlet on drivers side. With the breather on that CC it really is perfect. Just drain it everyweek. Plus it has the nice little lever for easy draining.

But, it wouldn't really work that way. How are you going to let the gasses and air go back into the throttle body? I think there is a sensor on the throttle body side that would probably make your car run like dookie if you didn't run the PCV valve side of the valve cover back to it. Also, I wouldn't wan't to share pressure between both sides of the valve cover since it might spit out more oil or cause problems with the valves not seating and make your engine run horribly. I am going to run it with 2 catch cans like I stated earlier. Also, you never see anyone putting a breather on both sides of the valve cover. I think it wouldn't work the way you are suggesting. Any thoughts on this from anyone else? The way you are suggesting you would have to add a breather to the throttle body too. Still probably wouldn't be beneficial for your engine???

Exactly. The one from the throttle body cannot take a breather filter.
