Default Perrin Oil Catch Can Install

Well it's been over 6 months now since I installed this oil can, and now I finally got around to installing the hoses. Yeah it's been one of those projects that I started and forgot to finish. So with out further delay, here is my catch can walkthrough.

Items:
1 - Catch can
4 feet of 1/4" hose
4 feet of 1/2" hose
1 "T" fitting 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2
1 Reducer fitting 1/2 x 1/4
4 Hose clamps 1/2"
2 Hose clamps 1/4"


Hoses and clamps can get at most auto part stores.
Fittings can be found at Home Depot/Lowes in the plumbing department.


Pic 1 - Catch can mounted behind passenger side headlight, bolted to the subframe.

Pic 2 - Passenger side valve cover vent hose. New hose installed in pic. 1/2" hose will fit perfect without any hose clamps.

Pic 3 - Driver side valve cover vent hose. Same as pic 2.

Pic 4 - Intake return port, attached to intake hose pre-I/C under the intake manifold

Pic 4 - Take the 1/2 x 1/4 reducer fitting and connect it to the stock hose from the intake port, and then attach the 1/4" hose to the other side. Reattach the stock intake hose to the intake return port and hose clamp it. Route the 1/4" hose around to the passenger side of the manifold and down to the catch can. This will be connected to the "Out" port of the catch can.

Pic 5 - Reducer connection

Pic 6 - Route the valve cover vent hose (1/2") from each side and connect them to the "T" fitting. From the "T" fitting connect the 1/4" hose and run it to the "Intake" port of the catch can.

Pic 7 - Final pic of the hoses routed to the catch can

Pic 8 - Catch can pic again with the hoses to the ports.

Over 2 months later this is how much oil the can has caught. Close to a half quart. Now I can see where most of the oil is being consumed now.

At least my I/C an intake is clean now.

Whoa. Good work, Dookie!

I really should put in one of these, too. Be a nice day-project, which I haven't had on the LGT for a *loooooong* time.

Thanks guys. As long as you have all the parts, it should only take a few hours to do.

One thing I forgot to mention in my walkthrough is to make sure to remove the original tube (ABS tube that's connected to the OEM hoes) on the backside of the intake manifold. I'm sure you'll figure it out since you'll have to remove it anyways to run the new hoses.

It's a black tube is attached to the back of the intake manifold. The tube is connected to the hoses that goes to each heads, left & right. Then the center portion is connect to the hose that runs under the manifold to the intake tube.

I'll see if I can dig up my tube and take a pic of it this weekend.
