    engine breather / catchcan setup for a c5/e1 boosted motor?

    i am looking for ideas on how to setup my engine breather or a catchcan so i do not have oil pucking from it or into the air intake.

    with a c3 wheel and a r2 reflash i ran the oem breather setup with the riva breather filter kit.
    know i have the c5 and a r3 and that same setup pukes oil when i stab the throttle.

    can i run the line from the oem breather box and T it into the front line coming off of the valve cover going to the crankcase?

    some peeps have mentioned putting a check valve on top of the catchcan where the filter goes! i am not sure if that would help.......

    for those running high boost or turbos, can you share your R&D?

    if the oil cooler is not getting the needed water, which would cause the oil to get HOT.
    would that cause it to come out the breather?

    What about doing an exhaust evac system? I bet it would work pretty good after the water box

    it would probably suck all the oil out of the crankcase.

    lol, naw.. This has been used on drag cars for YEARS!!

    Look at this: Moroso : Category Display

    The only variable in this application is the water in the system.. I might give it a try, and if it doesn't work, I'll just plug weld the hole. Hell, who knows, the added mass of the water flowing, might make the system work even better!! Vacuum on the crankcase just means MORE POWER!! Most drag cars run right around 15" of vacuum from their engine driven vac pumps. Engines are just air pumps, and you look at the displacement of the engine, but remember, there's air on the other side of that piston too!!
