@Puffwagon By venting holes you mean the crankcase vent and the PCV right? which would mean I should do the PCV next.

 

From what I read the crankcase breather is to allow gases to escape, catching oil, and grabbing fresh air from the air intake therefore why would I need a one way valve for my catch can if I have a breather filter eliminating pressurisation?? @arronm  

Cheers for the info guys! The to do list keeps on getting longer and longer:thumbs-up:

Yep.

That sounds backwards. The intake is pulling cleaner air from the catch can to remain legal. You can't have the crankcase, rocker cover or catch can venting to atmosphere.

You only need it when the rocker cover is connected to the manifold. When it is connected to a catch can there is no boost pressure there, only crankcase pressure. Look at the stock setup, the hoses both go to the rocker cover but they go to different locations from there.

 

In a street car with stock ring gaps a catch can is just there to filter what little blow-by there is while still running the system through the intake for legality. Ideally you wouldn't connect it to the intake and just have a filter on top of it so it doesn't pressurise from crankcase gas.

 

When I say intake I mean pre turbo.

 

Edit: I just noticed you said the breather filter eliminates pressurisation. It doesn't do that, it just condenses the oil out of the air coming into the catch can.

You are very confused.  

 

They are 2 different circuits.  Jump on Google and do some reading.

It's been a while and have had quite a bit of work done since my last post.

Here is the list of mods I got done by FPT. Once it was finished I picked it up and within 5 hours of driving it I blew the drive shaft CV lol. 

So she's in getting the drive line upgraded.
