look into the Krank Vent mini system, i used this on the last turbo build i did and it worked very well. Cheap, easy to install, doesn't take up any space and very effective.

well since u're open air to crankcase emissions either with a breather on the valve cover or on the catch can thats "defeation of emmission control system" and thats $345 ticket... http://www.et-performance.com/

check them out...I believe the mini vent system doesnt use a breather or a can

I always thought the CV releases pressure, not sucking in air?

You need to use a closed system which burns crankcase vapours through the intake by using the the pre turbo as a vacume source. This is how I have my system routed.
A pic showing the baffle.

A couple of fittings, a tbolt clamp, drain and she's ready for installation.

One hose goes to the valve cover the other goes to the black box/oil seperator on the back of the block where the pvc valve used to be plugged in then through the baffle in the can then out the other side to pre turbo. The hose laying on the valve cover in this pic goes to the black box.

Installed on firewall


This is just one example of how you can vent your crankcase and still be legal.

i assume you mean the VC Charles. The breather does suck in air to help push all the vapours out of the crankcase through the pcv port.

Look at the arrows in the picture, it helps explain it a bit better.

What I ran was: breather on the VC and the pcv line was connect to a catch can, the other line was connected to a pre-turbo slash. Worked fine I guess. As long as your pcv line is connected to a vac. source its cool.

Personally if I was to do it again and wasn't worried about emission I'd do an exhaust slash..

the crank vent mini basically replaces the factory PCV system that was never designed to see boost. Its basically just a glorified PCV valve (actually 2). It uses two valves, 1 replaces the factory pcv valve that works in vacuum and then closes in boost, the other valve in the system goes between the valve cover and to either atmosphere or pre-turbo, this valve never sees boost and stays open while the other one is closed (to not let boost into the crankcase) to allow pressure out of the crankcase.
IMO it works very very well, is uber-easy to install, and doesn't add a bunch of hoses or an ugly (IMO) catch can under the hood.
These valves can hold up to like 120psi (or something rediculous like that) and are guaranteed not to fail.
