    Hi All,

    So looked at my engine bay and the pipe coming out the rocker cover is ruined. Also the pipe from the hockey puck non return valve to the TIP has a hole.

    Question is after going through many posts I still just want to check this is okay. Best way to explain myself was paint so is this set up okay?

    I bought some 19mm hose, T piece and some jubilee clips. May purchase catch can too.

    Is the catch can in the right place on that.

    Thank you in advance

    If you have a look in the stickies, there is alot of information regarding simplifying the PCV and adding a catch can.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi mate, seen that but don't want to take all that out, just change the weird shaped pipe that goes into the rocker cover and the one in between the puck and tip

    Hi,

    On further exploration looks like the previous owner not only installed a forged TIP & recirc valve but at the same time took the SAI, n112 etc etc out so this is already done. Just need to add a catch can and I am sorted.

    Usually when fitting a catch can the pipe between the lower pcv valve and inlet manifold is also blocked of or removed.

    I believe the lower PCV has gone, big T piece correct?

    Regarding my set up is that the correct place to put the catch can?
