    How are they the best? They don't have any connection to return the oil, that they are supposed to extract from the fumes, back into the sump.

    A lot of people rave on about them? Never heard of emptying the catch can at service intervals?

    The thing is, sometimes catch cans also collect some condensation, you don't really want that going back into the sump.

    I have no experience in hooking up catch cans, but will be shortly... you sure this is the right way to install the lines? Only reason I ask is that I thought it would have been better to have vapours exiting the top, as there would be a chance oil could escape via the lower exit point back to the manifold? Feel free to shut me down.
    Cheers
