    Well i finally fitted my catch can, surprising how much you end up ripping out!

    Ive got a question though since some of the can threads dont seem to have an answer...

    The pipe that come from the inlet manifold is the brake booster line i believe? Now mine has got 2 one way valves, one near the inlet and one further back near the firewall...do they both need to be there? Or can i do away with 1 and be happy?

    It'll be fine with one, as long as it doesn't fail

    Have you noticed anything in braking performance? If not: you should be ok. Could be as safeguard (if one fails then...)

    Nah seems pretty standard at the moment! I was a bit worried about that when I started but it's all good!

    I think the initial one way is from the inlet and to prevent anything going back into it that comes from the PCV system. I need to get some more silicone hose first before I chop it out.

    Cheers guys, onto the SAI next when the blanking plug turns up :)
