Default Oil Catch Can

I have an oil catch tank and I was wondering where install the catch can hoses? I know one goes on the PCV, but I don't know where the other one will go. Does it go on the driver side crack case breather? (the hose that goes to the stock air box) Or on the Intake manifold. And why would it go on the intake manifold if it doesn't go in the crack case breather.



Reason being I'm installing an aftermarket intake on a 04 GT H.O.


Thanks guys!

Install the catch can in between the pcv and intake manifold. If you are bound and determined to use a hot air intake then the second catch can goes in between the crank case and the intake.

Would I use a T-fitting to slice into it?

No. Catch can should have an arrow on it. Cut hose going to the PCV from the valve cover, insert the catch can with the arrow pointing toward the PCV valve.

Ok so I installed the Catch can on the crank case breather (from the old air box.) The Second line would go to the PCV? What happens to the inlet for the intake manifold where the PCV connects to? Do I cap that?
