Here is the one I installed, hoses it came with were useless, just used gas hose I had laying around.
Easy installation, I just had to make the bracket.
Also put an expanded spring inside the hose that makes the bend to keep it from crimping.

Getting expensive!! Especially for unknown gains if any.

You don't have to have a fancy catch can. You can buy one off eBay for $20. Remember no moving parts, just a collection container for the bypass crap. You won't see any remarkable changes in MPG or the like. You gain the knowledge that your valves and plugs will stay cleaner longer.

Say whatever you may, depends on whether you want this going through your intake, valves and cats. They work and they're cheap insurance. It's also another way to keep an eye on overall engine health, just like my "stupid" direct pressure oil gauge. AN fittings would add a professional look for sure.

It was mostly for fun, and I understand fully the dubious benefit(s) if any, but it is the only intake system I even considered purchasing. The trade off is the increased intake temps while sitting still, otherwise cruising temps average the same as with the OE intake (+10f over ambient). What I can say with certainty is, with that and the other changes I have made, my mileage averages 19+ consistently, and I'm positive I could do better if I could keep my foot out of it.

For me, not being able to do much Fabrication , keeps me from getting bored.
I am surprised you can find decent hardware from EBay ,Amazon and other vendors.
I will still have to do some machining and got the wheel chair recharging.
Not sure how much blow by there is on my motor but it has been worked hard so I don't think this will hurt and add some good however small.
It got expensive when I decided to run two catch cans.
AN fittings are expensive .Actually bought some rather cheaper than the normal . Quality?

Not sure if I will use the separators but is a good way of seeing the oil amount caught.
To empty the canisters you need to unscrew the the bottom from the top.
Need to loosen clamps to do this then readjust to tighten.
Takes too much time so will use ball valves to empty. Much faster
