    so can one of you just tell me what to buy? i know how to put it together just confused on what i need to buy.. do i buy exactly what that guy did in the first post?

    i dont want to spend 50 bucks.. id like to stay at 22 like BAB said.

    3/8" hosing
    2 fittings
    catch can
    hose clamps
    and teflon tape/paste stuff?

    thats it?

    wait, do i need the t fittings?

    also, what goes into the valve cover? just stick the hose into the end???

    no fittings needed. just put the hose at the end of the PVC, attach the catch can, then hose the other end to the intake.

    22 bux will be VERY hard to do.

    he should be able to do it.

    make sure to get a glass can not plastic. that will probably be the most expensive part. u can even get them at walmart next to the air compressor parts. i bought the hose at a mom/pop auto parts store and it was like 50-60 cents a foot. and the rest is chump change. might even have it if ur like me and have a box of misc bolts, clamps, hoses etc.

    you should be able to pull the hose off the PVC valve on the drivers side of your valve cover. If it is like the 99, it will have a plastic hose on the valve. Remove the plastic hose and put on the rubber hose.

    my catch can was near the firewall in that pic. I dont have it on the car anymore.

    I wouldn't be much help. Mine is an oile separator system for a pan-evac system that's made from compressor filters and garden hose . . lol

    k well i got some hideous red hosing (nobody seemed to have black? wtf right) and i got the barb fittings as well as the hose clamps.. but what i didn't get is the main part lol...

    nobody had glass filters or w/e.. they were all plastic and could only stand up to 125*..... soo i guess its time to start lookin at the internet.. idk if any of you have heard of Northern Tools but im hoping they will..

    I have the plastic one from lowes. I have had no issues with it. I have had it for 3 years...been on 2 turbo cars, one SC car, and now my 99. You will be fine with it.
