McQueen The OEM PCV on the driver side is pretty hard. Mine wouldn't bend much. Also, if they're still original, they're probably pretty dry-rotted by now. You don't have to use as much hose as I did, you can route it however you want. Just make sure you use fuel line. The vacuum line I got for mine kept collapsing under the engine's vacuum.

The_Red_Stig I was just browsing the how to's and came across this sticky. I think I wanna do this to my car because it seems simple and functional, especially for a daily driver. I was just wondering if there is any reason why you couldn't just install the separator in-line; meaning just cut the OEM PCV hose and connect the separator with 3/8" adapters? Wouldn't this just eliminate the need for extra vacuum hose and clean up the install a bit or am I missing something?

You need the extra vac/pressure when you boost, I've heard bad things happen with boost and breathers...

xtreme 2 I did this to my car a while back. It's surprising how much oil this catches.

That's not a bad idea. I didn't think of it before but you could probably T it into your dipstick port, or see if there's an alternate dipstick casting in it.

Of course our motors don't have quite as many option ports as the ones at work. Seriously, look at all the ports on a Cummins engine. If you don't know exactly what ones you need to plumb, you'll probably cry. Makes for plenty of headaches.

McQueen Didn't get a chance to get any new hose today (too busy getting my Termi bumper installed, it was a bitch). Going to pick up some 3/8" fuel line tomorrow.

I'd get a good coalescing type, similar to what you have, and if you're really ambitious, put a fitting on the drain plug and leave the petcock open. Drill and tap a fitting into the oil pan, or T one if you already have one for a super/turbocharger. Run a hose from the drain port to the pan and voila! You have a CCV coalescing filter system just like larger heavy duty engines come with from the factory. No draining required.

I'm tempted to do this since I've got the engine out of the car and the oil pan off. I don't have anywhere to plug my welder in to in my storage space though...hmm...
