    Okay, from what I understand, I'm gonna have to do the following:

    1. Buy a catch can
    2. Tap the back of the block and install a nipple
    3. Run hose from nipple to catch can
    4. Run another hose from catch can to intake manifold

    My questions are, is there any other way to do this than tapping the block? I know that on CRV's the hoses run from the valve cover...Could I just tap my valve cover and put a nipple on it, run a hose from there to the catch can, and run from there to the intake manifold?

    Also, what exactly is a PCV valve? Do I need to get one to use if I use a catch can?

    Thanks in advance!

    Why do you HAVE to do this?

    Postive
    Ventilation
    Crankcase

    Valve

    PCV Valve

    Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve

    I know what it MEANS, I'm asking WHAT on the MOTOR is it? IS there an actual VALVE, or is that just referring to the entire system?

    yes its an actual valve. on my d15b its a little inline valve on the intake manifold. it looks like a nipple; threaded on one side and nipple for the hose on the other. about 1.5" long and .5"-.75" wide
