you still need to stop pressurizing your crankcase.

So my car idles high because of my catch can routing. For now i pulled it off untill i figure out where im going to mount it. Most likely it will mount near the turbo for less hose. Got the PCV-Intake Mani plumbed and my car actually idles at 800 rather than 1200.

Do you have to have the charcole canister to pass emissions because i ripped mine out

Wow your engine bay looks like mine. Messy

I leak from my oil return also. I didn't use any jbweld or RTV and I tapped the hole badly.

From this page: Emission Control Systems

"Gasoline evaporates quite easily. In the past, these evaporative emissions were vented into the atmosphere. 20% of all HC emissions from the automobile are from the gas tank. In 1970 legislation was passed, prohibiting venting of gas tank fumes into the atmosphere. An evaporative control system was developed to eliminate this source of pollution. The function of the fuel evaporative control system is to trap and store evaporative emissions from the gas tank and carburetor. A charcoal canister is used to trap the fuel vapors. The fuel vapors adhere to the charcoal, until the engine is started, and engine vacuum can be used to draw the vapors into the engine, so that they can be burned along with the fuel/air mixture. This system requires the use of a sealed gas tank filler cap. This cap is so important to the operation of the system, that a test of the cap is now being integrated into many state emission inspection programs. Pre-1970 cars released fuel vapors into the atmosphere through the use of a vented gas cap. Today with the use of sealed caps, redesigned gas tanks are used. The tank has to have the space for the vapors to collect so that they can then be vented to the charcoal canister. A purge valve is used to control the vapor flow into the engine. The purge valve is operated by engine vacuum. One common problem with this system is that the purge valve goes bad and engine vacuum draws fuel directly into the intake system. This enriches the fuel mixture and will foul the spark plugs. Most charcoal canisters have a filter that should be replaced periodically. This system should be checked when fuel mileage drops. "

My fuel mileage has always kind of sucked. Maybe I will "check the filter". I think with our cars though, the canister needs to be replaced?
