The measurements are 3/8 NPT by a 3/8 barb.

I will take some pics of where I plan to install it once I find a 3/8 NPT to a 5/8 barb..grrrr.

I am interested in this mod as well. I have the 2012 Titanium. Would the dealer have a problem with a Catch Can.

Nope...if you were to have a problem they have to prove that whatever you installed caused the problem.

Is that pretty easy to get your hand in there to remove the can to empty it? Nice looking setup.

Nice install Greg,

I'm just thinking it work better running it into the actual PCV hose vs. the breather side? The PCV hose runs from the left side of the block (facing the front of the car) off of the oil separator that is on the side of the block and then into the intake manifold (so basically sits in the little bit of space between where the intake manifold curves down and the side of the block). Unfortunately, both sides of that hose are pretty much a PITA to get to from up top. I'm waiting until my 1st oil change is due to see if its easier reached from the bottom (and to check how efficient that factory oil separator is). That tube from the valve cover to the intake duct is the breather hose, which shouldn't really have anywhere near the amount of oil vapors the PCV side would have.

Hmmm....I am used to V8 mustangs and obviously they are different but on them OAS's are installed in the same places to catch the air as it is sent back into the intake...

On my mustang I have 2 elements plugged into the VC holes you can see the vapors coming off them with the engine running.

Maybe I put it on the wrong tube?
