Anyone running a catch can or oil separator on there Pro yet? Wondering about clearance above valve cover for fittings. My rig is 5 hours away from me right now. Was looking at the ALBA fitting just not sure how much room I have.

You dont have to route it back to the valve cover . If you use a good air oil separator you can route it back to the intake without worrying about getting oil in your intake track or intercooler...this way you still utilize some of the scavenging effect.
If you do want to route it to your valve cover then I would look at the EVO separator ....way expensive but nice

If you want to save some money and get great results ...check out this thread .

Not sure I am following how you wouldnt have to go back to the top of the valve cover. The EVP kit you showed goes back to VC as well. Maybe I am over thinking. Also just an FYI, I have read that 2nd link you posted before, and I was able to find that same separator on amazon for less the $50 if anyone is looking.

You found a generic knock-off for that price, not the same thing.

Read the article I wrote and it explains why you want it routed to the intake side.

i'm running an AA catch can, it sits above the drivers rear, i just reach up and open the valve and drain it into a small cup or whatever i have handy. no need to fight with trying to route it back to the engine.

Well I guess I had it in my mind that an inline separator style setup would be a better system than a catch can. Sounds like most of you just run a catch can.

That $50 listing is the replacement filter.

I'm pretty sure that aa catch can for the pro is part of their aluminum j-pipe. Pretty sure there is a port going to the pipe for scavenging affect.

@fastman-99 A catch can unlike a air oil separator will still let oil vapor into the intake. This will cover your sensors and intercooler in oil residue and reduce intake charge efficiency

Not that I've seen... it's got a small boost reference line that goes up to the boost controller, otherwise just the 1" line going to the can.
