    Identify this part...

    Maybe a newb question but i was wondering what the four lines coming from the valve cover going into the tank on the firewall are for? It looks like a catch can of some sort but i really dont know.

        two out the block? isnt there only one pcv valve back there? And is this necessary for high power or something? I see it a lot on 300+hp cars.

            the pcv valve and black box is removed when your turbo and the hole is blocked up. theres a whole about 2" higher and one about 6" to the side of that one and thats where you vent the block.

                where does the vacuum come from to vent the block and valve cover to the catch can?

                  when your turbo usually you use a vented catch can with air filters on the can. on this particular setup im not sure if its vented or a closed system since it looks custom. if you use a closed setup then you need to tap in your pipe before it enters the turbo so that you dont boost into the can. not sure if that answers your question.

                          i ain't very knowledgeable on turbos or even vtec rides........but i've seen this done b4. and what i have to ask is..... the 2 fittings in the front of the valve cover are made in locations where there isnt any baffling correct? cuz i've inspected the gsr valve cover of one i have sitting at my shop....... and that far down on the valve cover does not have baffling. if thats the case, what is the point considering it can be sucking up oil. its suppose to be a breather in a sense to ventilate pressures up there, but oil gets splashed around on purpose in those areas. and the baffled portions of the valve cover is where the pressure/air go...... so isn't that were most air would be and that is where u'd wanna install a catch can?

                                    Most elaborate catch can setups like that one have a return line. It's usually on the bottom of the can, and it's tee'd into one of the lines coming from the back of the block.

                                    The stock PCV system is designed to pull blow-by gases out of the crankcase, correct? Well when you introduce positive pressure, you have to completely separate the crankcase so that it isn't pressurized along with the manifold. Since it's all alone, you can't just seal it up, because it needs to "breathe", or release pressure/vapors during high rpm situations. Those places on the valve cover don't see a significant amount of standing oil, which would overfill a can of that size.
