    I ended up getting this valve https://www.modernperformance.com/pr...o_oilcatchcans. Shipping is absolutely ridiculous but I paid it anyway.

    Thanks! Just placed my order. Yeah the check valve and shipping is pricey but for what I paid for the catch can, the whole system price is not bad. To put this in perspective I paid around $100 for a custom catch can for my GTO.

    Do you need the check valve.

    IMO you need it more than the catch can and is the main reason I'm doing this mod. It prevents boost from back feeding into your valve cover/crank case and causing problems. With the check valve, air goes into the throttle body but not out.

    Never a bad idea to throw a loofa or something similar in the catch can as well, helps keep the oil in the can.

    Good ones come with a type of steel wool inside already and sealed shut. Lower quality ones use a mesh at the top and bottom to separate the oil from the vapor.

    Yea I never spent the $$ for the good ones, haha. i just bought the cheap ones off ebay and put a loofa or steel wool in it myself. I also would seal al the nipples with superglue so they dont leak, which some have on me before. You get what you pay for :/
