Ooh ok, that makes sense. I thought you were referring to one of the pre-made intake kits Spectre makes.

That kit will basically allow me to reconnect the PCV cleanly, I may grab it instead of gutting a stock PCV value.

Spector kit just makes it so you don't need to buy a PCV and hollow it out. If you already bought a PCV to hollow out then you don't need that Spector kit. I thought you were still trying to figure out how to make that work...

You still need 1 small breather filter to remove that soft rubber line, this is separate from the PCV... You have ordered everything you need it seems like. I think it will make more sense once you get it

Yea, I just ordered the kit and canceled the PCV valve. It was only a $2 difference and it'll look much cleaner.

Wheres the other soft rubber line coming/going from? I'm sure once I open the hood and get working it'll make sense, but I'm at work and this is better than what I should be doing haha

Mist...that's why some put a catch can inline with the passenger side setup. Keeps this oil mist from contaminating the intake, whis is where Ford routes the tube.

There is a PCV valve in the head cover; as member ronnie has pointed out, the large 3 manufacturers got a PCV valve "certified" to use as a crankcase ventilation system a long time ago. It allows the gases from ring blowby to venilate through this valve, and back into the intake to be reburned. It also allows oil mist, which over time, can get onto the backsides of the valves, causing poor performance. I never thought much about this until I made a catch can. I now empty about a teaspoon of oil out of it every 3 to 4 weeks.

PCV Looks like this:

Both do it, passenger is worst because it's got manifold vacuum on it. The other one doesn't have near as much vacuum pulling oil out.

Here's a picture of it on a thread I started a few months back:

Oil Catch can

I used the stock connectors from the tube that is already there (on right/passenger side), then used the stock tubes right angles (already molded) to connect to the barbed brass connectors that I screwed into the water catch bottle (bought at Lowes) used for air compressors).

Have you taken that on a road trip or something that would expose the unit to high heat for an extended period of time? I would just be worried about it melting or something like that... Maybe the plastic is thick enough that it is not an issue. After all, people are using those cheap plastic trash cans for an air box and they don't seem to have problems... Any input?

I have put well over 15K on this home made unit. No distortion, melting, or disfigurement. The unit is far enough away from the exhaust (as the picture shows, in the same location as the stock tube it replaces).

Road trips? I do them three times a week: Daytona/Orlando to Tampa, three round trips a week. I average 600 miles per week on my Mustang. Blew the 36K warranty long ago!

The maf adaptor needs that black piece that slides in with a section cut out for the MAF sensor. Add that to the adaptor and it will work fine.

So now instead of actual cold air coming into the stock filter you have a filter sitting above the header pipe?
Interesting

Its not a good setup unless u run breather filters on both valves. Otherwise u create a suction and ur letting unmetered air into ur crankcase

I don't think you would want to run a breather on the PCV. It's going to clog with oil.

Or do you mean something else by "both valves"

You can run a breather on the pcv, its fine, you need a breather on the other side of the intake manifold as well. I chose to keep my pcv just to try to keep the car as stock as possible. There's no benefits to breather filters, just losing your unburned gases
