has anyone pressure/vacuum tested their catch cans? There are several different models being used. I'm planning to seal mine up before install. Sounds like it isn't the end of the world if there's a leak on these connections

Thats why adding a check valve as a precaution between the OCC and intake manifold is a good idea.

I haven't yet but I KNOW that there's pretty sufficient vacuum on the 3.3L system. I have the single can by ADD1 that catches BOTH sides of the engine and even at idle there's pretty solid vacuum. My can has a dipstick and when I take it out you can hear the suck and it'll pull the stick out of my fingers and back into the can if I'm not grabbing it firmly. LOL

I am thinking about installing single or double (not dual inlet) oil catch can on mine. Anyone seeing any oil in CCV catch can? Not planning any intake, exhaust or tune. Just as it is with thicker sway bars.

I am not sure if I should get single or dual catch can from SXTH.

I read this

Once you increase the boost you will start accumulating oil on the breather side as you will start getting blow by, due to the increase in pressure.

in this thread (post from [MENTION=321]robz32[/MENTION]).

I might do intake and cat back exhaust in future. Not planning to tune or do any other mods. Do I need dual?

If you are staying within the factory boost specs then you can get by with the PCV side only.

But if you are planning on adding a piggyback later on or an ECU tune, then dual is recommended.

I got a single can that filters both sides from ADD W1. V3.3.
