    This is how I did mine...

    Ill take pictures once its in; I just ordered it with NPT hose and fittings, which should be a little less bulky.

    I looked at the GAS CCV; they have a finalized design for forced induction, which they say theyd produce if enough people expressed interest. Im going to express interest; perhaps you should, too.

    Sort of off-topic, but I think my engine has been heating up faster with the GAS CCV.

    Hmm... someone needs to post about this in the FI forum on e46f... I'm sure there would be some interest over there... not a lot of FI cars here

    First, sorry to hear that happened. 2nd, a bit confused, if you go FI no need for CCV, so what is the product?

    John, Im buying an oil catch can because even with FI the car retains a PCV valve (in the S/C) and a PCV hose between the valve cover and the S/C. My suspicion is that the valve froze up with the mayo/gunk, causing positive pressure in the crankcase and leading to the valve cover gasket failure. If I can eliminate the gunk before it gets to the PCV valve then the chances of the valve freezing become much lower.

    John, might be something to think about since you have a TS too. I have mayo in my system and its pretty warm here...its pretty simple to pull the hose at the PCV and check.

    can you post a picture of the PCV hose routing on your motor? just thinking about BMW's 'fix' for this on the E90... well, the CCV was inside the valve cover, but they also have a wire heater that wraps around the hoses... perhaps that would be an easy solution here. although that doesn't help you trap any oil condensate and keep it from entering the intake/SC, which is pretty important.
