I'm looking for something cheap simple and effective. I don't really want to do any modifying. I came across this and would probably replace the filter so i have two lines going to the valve cover. anyone have a better suggestion?

Doing tech inspection for the HMSA these past few years has caused me to re-evaluate a bit here. While i'm all for a properly baffled can, particularly on high specific output forced induction applications, it would blow your mind how many of these rich schmucks with priceless historic race cars use modified aluminum water bottles, like the kind you'd buy in the Outdoor section at Walmart, or perhaps something even more ghetto.

Granted, this is mostly on normally aspirated stuff that's decades old, and again i'm all for a properly baffled can in your case, but my point is that at the end of the day it just needs to a) not leak b) be secure c) be in a location that is easy to drain and check level and d) depending on the engine and catch can configuration, be properly baffled. I feel like you are on the right track here and could probably make your own fairly easily and economically.

I got the one in the first post for $40. It looks like a nice one. I've seen other companies remarket it for as much as $180. It's design made the most sense to me out of the many cheep ones I looked at. I will be connecting the filtered port to the intake manifold and the other two to larger modified valve cover ports. It will be going on a not turbo 4g63. Even the nonturbo cars have valve cover gasket failures that cake the whole bay with oil. I'm trying to avoid that with the larger ports.

With that herrendous shipping price (2 months via china-post no less) added to the price, you could have gotten THIS from JMF.

No, I got the same one in black for $39 shipped. Still from china though.

I ordered some hose barbs for the valve cover too. 1/4"npt x 12mm (1/2") id hose

I just shaved a valve cover and removed the baffle to clean it. I'll drill and tap for the bigger fittings today or tomorrow. Will also drill and tap for new pan head screws to hold the baffle back in and smooth the inside of the valve cover. Its a very rough cast. will post pictures when I have some progress to show.

I noticed that the bottom half was very clean but the top half was filthy. I'm pretty sure this is because the port for the pcv valve is half the diameter of the one that goes out the side to the intake. That or the pcv valve was clogged.
