    You can use any of those nipples. Pick a nipple any nipple is ok.

    It's just maybe the size of the hose might not fit for the DV nipple

    I deleted pcv and vent it to atmos. But sometimes there is a lot of smoke coming from the pipe that it's venting, so i'm thinking to connect it back to hockey puck without catch can. Or just connect the pipe to the TIP without the hockey puck?
    Is there going to be any problem. I guess i will have to clear my TB more recently.

    I have same issues mate been wanting to catch can my bam but I'm confused as to connect which hose to which and what to blank off.
    Currently I have a t piece and 2 90 degree bends but silicone hose idiots have not sent the 2 metre hose I ordered in 2 pieces that would b ok but the isnide diameterof 1 is bigger so my 90 degree bends just pop off loose..
    Really want to do the install as I have high oil consumption at the minute so wanted to eliminate afew things on the way lol..
    Let us know how you get on

    The hose that is popping of your 90 degree bend can you not put a small jubilee clip in it. The hockey puck I did away with and vented to atmosphere and blocked of the tip where the hose with the hockey puck would attach to. If I get a chance later I'll take a couple of pictures and post them up.

    Or maybe try wrapping some plumbers PTFE tape round the 90 degree bend to build up the circumference to make it a tighter fit?

    It really shouldn't have enough pressure to blow the pipe off, are you sure there's not a reducer somewhere after? The only time I had a pipe pop off is when I tried to vent to atmosphere before a catch can with a little filter which got gummed up in about 10 minutes and split.

    Morning mate plumbers tape hey I didn't think of that I have been trying to shut silicone hose pieces to narrow the diameter but that was a quick and easy fail lol
    I've ordered a 19mm hose so back to missions with catch can when the hose arrives..
    Thanks for your input matey
