    Well, after reading Ian's build, he got my thinkin about my need for a catch can on my motor when it comes in(hopefully they'll be done this week!!).

    Heres some quick diagrams I threw together. This is similar to Ian's, but I added a Tee fitting on the black box and left nipple.

    Will this work? I think this is what most people do...

    Or should I do it similar to Ian's build, buy buying the Prelude nipples and stuff? :

    Heres some I found for turbo motors...

    Hate to bump an old thread, but I'm still needing some help.

    Do I need to setup a vacuum on the catch can?
    or can both lines just run straight into the can, like my first drawing?

    I'm trying to find out where the fittings are for the back of the block(if I need to use them?)

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Yeah, but D series only have 1 valve cover breather. B's have 2.

    I plan to eventually do an AN setup, but I need something soon

    B's only have one valve cover breather...what Cypher did is drill two holes in the front of his valve cover and put AN nipples in them.


    Here's a great writeup oh the catchcan/breather/whatever thing that I used...it's for a B-series, but everything is more or less the same. Honda Acura Forum - Tech Performance Forums : Civic, Integra, Accord - DIY Oil Catch Can -- How to

    My engine was set up like the first diagram. For a turbo setup, I would want to make sure that the oil drain has a straight shot DOWN to the catch can.
