Is there anyway to hook that thing up the way you have it without replacing the turbo pipe?
I spoke w/ Jeff at Perrin today. He explained the idea, I added the install details.
Here is the easiest/safest method to add the crank vent tube (PVC vent) to the oil catch can, w/out buying the Perrin turbo inlet
This assumes you already have the basic catch can setup (on the valve cover vent).
You will need:
1- 1/2" vacuum T connector
1- 1/2" vacuum connector
1- 1/2" vacuum plug*
1- vacuum glue (for extra peace of mind)
6- hose clamps (for 1/2" hoses)
1 ft. 6" of 1/2 hose
*I substituted a 1/2" vacuum connector w/ a 5/8" threaded other end and bought a 5/8" threaded cap. I used plumbers tape and glue, and screwed on the cap; and then used glue and a clamp on the hose side. There is no way that plug is coming unplugged :wink: , and it's way too big to get sucked in. Brilliant!
EDITED for EASIER INSTALL (10 minutes)
[Hint: Crank vent hose is the furtherest forward (toward I/C) connection on the inlet pipe, it is a 1/2" tube and has a little grey electric clip on the top of it.]
1) Unplug the crank vent hose where it connects to the turbo inlet pipe. Unclasp the clamp holding the grey plug to the PVC hose. Remove the grey plug and the clamp from the hose.
2) Cut a 4" piece of spare hose and attached this grey plug to it, using the same clamp.
3) Cap off the other end of your 4" piece w/ the 1/2" vacuum plug (or connector w/ thread and cap); use glue &/or 1 hose clamp, to secure the plug. Securely capping this plug is crucial!
Set this 4" piece aside until step 6.
4) Using a 1/2" connector and 2 clamps, take the (now) loose crank vent hose (in the engine bay) and connect it to a 1 ft. (ish) piece of spare hose, using 2 clamps.
5) Using a T connecter and 3 clamps, hook the other end of this newly extended crank vent hose into the (valve cover vent) hose, which is going to the catch can.
6) Now grab your 4" piece of hose (set aside in step 3), and coonect the grey plug back into its inlet pipe clip.
NOTE: You should not get a CEL capping this tube, as the electric clip merely verifies clip connection-NO measure of pressure or flow.
You now have both your valve cover vent and your crank vent line going to the inside of your catch can, and then going from the catch can back to the turbo inlet (where the valve cover vent orignally connected).
