    Get a catch can before any mods. With updated pics.

    Well I posted pics last time of my ported manifold and you could see the oem one had tons of oil so no brainer to get a catch can.

    Well changed my oil today and be surprised at what came out and it still drained more out after this. This is less than 3k miles.

    i got mine from catchcans.com

    Install at most 10 minutes.
    Here is how it hooks up
    One line goes from rear driver side valve cover to the top of the can
    I used teflon tape (remember to put tape on the right way)

    Other line goes from the side of the catch can to the top of the manifold oem connection.

    As you operate your vehicle the engine produces crankcase vapors that are released through your valve covers. The more you get on it, the more you will produce. This pressure has to be released to avoid engine foul up due to the vapors containing oil, fuel, carbon and moisture. Instead of venting unchecked vapors back into your intake manifold and air intake tube, install a catch can in between. The catch can will catch the fluids and particles and can reroute vapors to your air intake in order for the vapors to be burned.

    Do we have a "How to" on here for this mod? it looks pretty straight forward if what is in your pic is the extent of it. Except for the fact of where the lines terminate which I can't see.

    Ahhhhk, I always ask questions before looking my myself. I'll go searching for it and post a link if I find one.
