Can anyone help me figure out how to install this catch can? It is this one



I have searched and searched and found so many different ways to install it I'm not sure the correct way.

I know the concept, one hose goes to intake? and one to PCV or valve cover, or something like that? Just not sure exactly which ports to connect the hoses to.

Thanks, I would buy that but am trying to get tuned here in a couple days so I can drive the car since it's my DD. I'm hoping to not have to order anything else if possible.

What about following this diagram? Would it still work even though my catch can has a breather?






Where is the "pcv valve port, and the OEM PCV system Vaccum Source" specifically, any pics?

The OEM PCV valve is located on the black box which is on the back of the block. Here is a pic of it.

When you switch over to a catch can this should be removed and the holes will need to be plugged. You will probably need the fitting setup like Steve posted. More than likely the place tuning your car (if they specialize in Honda's) will stock these since they are pretty basic.

You can probably hold off on installing this (and doing it right with the right parts!) until post-tune, as the catch can probably won't be a factor in the tiune

Ah okay good, I wasn't sure if the boost during tuning would put too much positive pressure in the crankcase and harm anything

So I went to put the catch can in, I got the fitting kit you suggested, but after i jacked the car up and looked for the black box I didn't find anything? I was looking to the right of the oil filter. There have been two previous owners before me, am I looking in the right place?

I managed to snap a pic and labeled it. All 3 of these holes are plugged.





Is that the right place, and is the lower plug already filled?

I made a drawing of a pic I found, do I do something like this?

Yup, someone already deleted it... so replace the plugs (NOT the bottom one that is indented) with the prelude fittings and that is where your hoses go

exactly...

one more piece of advice: use the best hose clamps you can POSSIBLY get your hands on.... i ran into problems 2x with clamps i got at Harbor Freight

which motor? odb2 LS motors don't have the blackbox, at least my 2000 integra didn't and it was stock when I bought it.

Wait actually why don't I just do something like this if the PCV is already deleted from the back and on the valve cover only? He removed the pcv and put a L fitting on there
