    Hello everyone, Looking at getting a Catch Can from the K5 store and id like to know which one you all recommend to use.

    I have a brand new Saikou Michi oil catch can. After serious consideration I think I may not end up installing it.

    Has anyone installed a pcv catch can in a 2016 2.0T yet? Since the pcv valve is in a different location I thought I'd ask since I haven't seen pictures for a 2016 install. Is the hose diameter larger than earlier models too? I didn't pull the hose off to verify, but it looks like it could be...

    I'm seeing many posts recommending check valves between the OCC to the Intake Manifold. I've called every fittings and plumbing business around and they have no idea where to get this item nor do they sell them. Where can I get 3/8" check valves for the Oil Catch Cans? What type? What brand?
