I'll put some pics up tomorrow morning. The thread title should read Jaz.. I wonder if one of the mods think they're Jerry Seinfeld or something and edited the title?

what size fittings screw into the bungs? like 1/2" 3/8" NPT?

the two unused bungs...are they just for mounting?

Thats a pretty sweet catch can. Route both of the manifold ports to it and mount it to the firewall, puuuuuurfect.

I bet those arent bungs brainy, probably for mounting.

just wanna make surez. most likely the new car wont have ABS, so i'll have a nice little spot for one now and I'm going to drill out the breather and pcv bung on the valve cover and tap with 1/2" fittings.

The barbs are 3/8" and the 2 mounting holes are 1/4" - 20.

yes. Eliminates the need for a turbo pcv and a breather line.

yea. If you dont want to run a 323GTX PCV valve to prevent the turbo from possibly pressurizing the crank case you get one of these and cap the port on the intake manifold. You right the breather and the PCV to this and it catches the oil that is blowout through the ports if there is blowby.

Personally, I plan on running one after I pick up a Begi-S kit this summer. I'd hold onto it, but I' moving from NJ to CO in May and I've been selling most of my car parts and guitars to pack lighter. Even with an upgraded PCV it reduces the amount of oil and crud that enters your intake manifold and is kind of like insurance if your PCV stops working.
