It has an inlet and outlet? You need vacuum to make it work? Catch cans are the same theory. The internal filters or elements may be different. Oil separators (grimmspeed, Crawford) are a different ball game.

Post a pic of your catch can. I think i the "nipples" are side to side they can be used either way, interchangeable, either one could be vacuum. In my setup, one nipple to attach the hose is right above the other, not side by side, & instructions clearly say that the port being used for vacuum (on my setup) is the bottom one.

The time you've spent trying to get an answer you could've installed and troubleshot if it was working correctly. Or you simply could sell it as you do not need a catch can.

It probably doesn't matter which port you use.

Left is inlet.

Right is outlet.

Unless it doesn't work right. Then:

Right is inlet.

Left is outlet.

Nope.

But those are the only two ways to install it. Just go install it and drive around for a week. If it gets stuff in it, you did it right. If not, switch the lines. It's not going to hurt anything.
