Glad you got it! how goes your OCC install ? lets see those pics :smile:

I have found using a hair dyer as a heat gun works well on removing factory hoses from fittings. If you trust yourself enough you could use a heat gun to help remove the hoses if you decide you need to re-install them for warranty issues.

Looks good, you have a lot more room with your CAI set up .. are you going to tee in for the back or just order another can?

How much oil / carbon build up ? pics ...
Just checked the dip stick there is some oil on it so I know it's working right. I want to make sure I put hoses in right spots I am 2nd guessing myself. The one that attaches to green pcv valve goes to "in" and the one that attaches to intake manifold goes to "out" or do I have them backwards?

Yes your solid


Green elbow is dirty crankcase side goes to the IN

The out side on the OCC should be the air that has passed threw the can becoming cleaner ... that goes to the Intake manifold inlet.

U think it would be best to run a 2nd can for the back pcv or is it safe to run one can and tee off?

Why not Tee in ? I have extra tees I can send you two of them .. I also have two extra check valves. cover shipping and I will send them your way. Or just like Blackula said get a vent filter and tee your clean side to the intake.

Nice Bryndg, you should be able to see any oily res in those lines. I have checked my can twice now very little to NO oil yet. I am only at 2500 miles and been driving extra nice so time will tell. I pulled the intake Sat and installed the spacer, still very clean all the way down to the valves.

Anyhow looks great keep us updated on how much your saving your engine from swallowing :yawn:
