Question How is this PCV Setup?

I've done some searching and everybody seems to have their own idea on how to setup the PCV system.

What I was plannong on doing is plugging the PCV line going to the intake manifold, then run the PCV line from the oil separator to a catch can then from the catch can to the intake (to create a vacuum). Same thing for the valve cover breather, run it to a catch can, but then just put a valve cover breather filter on that catch can.

I was just thinking that for the PCV line, it would be much better vented there than to the intake manifold since when in boost its going to shut the pcv valve and not allow the crank case to vent causing undue pressure.

Are there any downfalls to the solution i'm thinking of, other than overkill?

As long as the engine can breath freely you are good to go
