    So does anyone have a non-stock turbo system that runs an oil catch can and if so how do you run yours?

    I have heard routing the PCV valve to the Catch Can to the Preturbo intake. Then capping off the intake manifold port where the PCV tube originally went.

    or alternatively you can bore the PCV valve out with this setup.

    On my turbo'ed escort im just using a supra pcv valve to an air tool oil filter and then right to the intake manifold. The supra pcv seems to close off completely under boost so its not pressurizing anything and you can pick up the air tool filter for like $10 at walmart.

    What kind of car are you adding the oil catch can too? The name turbo lude makes me think its a prelude. If so I also have a turbo prelude. (Found this on honda-tech posted by BB6racer)
    This is the process I was told by inlinefour.com. Theres a vacuum line that connects your valve cover and intake manifold, you'll need to remove it. Decide where you're going to place the catch can in the engine bay, and make sure you have enough vacuum line to run from the valve cover to the catch can, and from the catch can back to the intake manifold (I used stainless steel lines). Secure the catch can in the engine bay (some catch cans have brackets to secure it) and hook up all the vacuum lines. Remove the lid and place some fairly fine grit steel wool inside (sorry i forgot what grit i used). Make sure that the air coming from the valve cover goes through some of the wool before it can escape to the intake, this will filter out any oil in the air. Put the lid back on and you are ready to go. Hope that helps.

    i have a catch can, DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A CATCH CAN for a turbocharged car they add life and and longevity to your TURBO and if you are a top mounted intercooler like i am to your intercooler also, which in turn helps your car run alot better. so i was kinda confused by your post is this for a turbocharged or non turbocharged car?

    Short tubing from turbo to IC to intake manifold reduces turbo lag.
