    and just a fyi , when winter comes you better drain that all the time. alot of condensation builds up in them>freezes> then when the pcv has no where to got it will exit somewhere else( in my case my dipstick )

    VTA = Vent to Atmosphere-
    when removing the PCV you can have 2 different types of catch cans VTA or recirculating.

    K so what is the point of having it installed apposed to just having your PCV Valve ? just trying to make sense of it to see if it would apply to my car an any way.


    oh would this reduce oil in my I/C tubes?

    LOL... ya google is great, usually quicker then waiting for a response. As for the catch-can I find my car runs a little nicer but you can definetly smell it with the VTA. I'm glad I got mine after seeing the shit that would have been sent back into the engine.

    Jason did the install and it was installed pre K04 but the drain was after.
    I think I will be going by and having him do a pressure test on the engine.
