    Well, since most on-market catch cans are grossly overpriced I've deicided to take on the feat myself and build a real, working PCV system replacement. I currently have an old medical bottle with cotton balls in it placed via hoses between my valve cover and my intake - using intake vacuum to draw oil mist out of my head. The crankcase vent tube (running through a runner support on the IM) reconnects to the intake manifold, and I haven't touched it. I'm wondering how I should run my hoses to the catch can. I don't want hoses flying everywhere, but I want the system to work. Any help is appreciated.

    I've included a little schematic for all you to look at.
