    Thread: Catch Can Setup

    1. 04-30-2012 01:50 AM #1
      I want to do a catch can on my stock 2l 16v. I am kind of unsure where to start. Can i just use the stock block breather and hook that up to a catch can and then run a vent with a filter on the end under the vehicle. And then block the original hookup from the block breather to the intake?

      Do I need to run the valve cover breather from a newer beetle?

      Just some pictures of your setup would help.


      Thanks

      Yes and yes. If your not making a bunch of power or your not Turbo, there is no reason to vent the vavlecover. Just use the stock breather in the block.

      if you are still running stock injection, and a mostly stock engine, leave it alone
