update ccv gone oil catch installed with pcv valve shown in above pick .took on highway for about an 1/2 or so no codes and engine runs nice and smooth. will keep you updated on this experiment. will keep an eye on oil levels and hoses colapsing (which they shouldn`t I have reenforced them for that issue).

She is running smooth? What do you mean by reinforced the hoses?

Where did you mount the can? If you can take a pic that would be great, I have the cold weather CCV parts on my workbench but I am seriously considering doing this if its more reliable and easily serviceable.

Just re-read the Bimmerforums post, is it really this easy?

-Plug the port on the dipstick tube

-connect VC to catch can outlet, slightly uphill to catch can if possible

-connect hose to the PCV with Y pipe connection from air distributor piece (should I cap off one of the air distributor connections?)

-Take that hose to inlet of catch can with Purolater PV1050 PCV check valve in line before the can to limit vaccuum to the intake

-Remove/cap off CCV as needed


Is that it????? And I can drain the can in winter easily without fear of hydrolock? Doru can you chime in here?

I didn`t cap off ccv as it is no longer used. I have lots of vacuum now ,barely had any before. some guys out there using this set up have over 40000 miles with no issues.
connect hose to the PCV with Y pipe connection from air distributor piece (should I cap off one of the air distributor connections?) no need all your doing is cutting the hose off the y connector and installing the 5/8 hose from catch, pcv (Purolator PV1050
-O'Reilly Auto/Microguard PCV345
-FRAM FV345 & FV345DP
-BWD Auto PCV358
-Napa Item MPF39358 or CRB29358) to it. ( I used the fram fv345 from maslack, $8.00)
this set up is really simple. (too simple) .
the only thing I don`t know about this set up is if it would pass emissions test. I live in northern ont so we don`t have to worry about emissions up here. I would think it would pass as this is a non vented catch can.
and for all your other questions your right on.
I used heater hose and from vacuum on the 5/8 hose it would collapse so I went to home depot and bought some 3/8 id x 1/2 od solid plastic white hose and fit it inside the heater hose so there is know way it can collapse now with vacuum pressure. (I wanted to keep my hoses all black for cosmetic reasons. and rubber hoses are easier to go over the plastic fittings like the y connector which you don`t want to break and also the 90 dergree connector you have to cut so its straight to install the 3/4" hose to it from catch can.)
she is running smooth meaning no change in the way the engine ran before with the stock ccv .

it would be a nicer install using the catch can you suggested as you wouldn`t have to use a down sizer on the vc 3/4 hose . but I`m happy with this set up so far will keep all you guys updated .I`m at 205000km on the 3.0i as we speak. this winter will be the big test for this system .
