  13. Run some more hose from the oil catch can to the PCV valve. Cut to length and attach with the supplied hose clamps, using a flat head screwdriver to tighten. I ran mine to the passenger side PCV valve.

  15. For upkeep: use the hose on the side of the catch can as a fluid level reference to let you know when to drain. If the line is over halfway full, it is time to drain it out. To empty the contents, unscrew the drain plug from the bottom and reinstall once drained.
