Default Please Help on my Catch Can Install

I cant get my Greddy catch can to collect anything I installed it like this because the amount of line they gave me allowed me to hook it up with as shown. I bought more line so I can route it to other places now.

Do you have any more pictures showing the overall routing of your lines? People seem to have their own opinions on catch cans. IMO, the best set-up is two catch cans: 1 for the valve covers and 1 for the crankcase. However, you should use baffled type catch cans to separate the oil properly. The problem is that most catch cans (including the greddy cans) are just an empty can with no baffle. You can modify the can to add a baffle plate - that's what I did with my greddy cans.
Here is my setup:

You will not instantly notice it doing its job. It will take some time. One way you will know is when your hose starts turning color.
Hopefully you put some kind of material in the can to hold the oil and debris. I cut up some dish washing sponge/ scratch pans for mine. A lot of people use steel wool.
I done a complete write up with pics if you need it pm me I will provide it to you.
From your pics looks like you got it right.

OK, the can installation looks good. The valve cover vents are tee'd together and then they run into the can. The outlet of the can goes to the turbo inlet. Just as it should be. Unusual can placement - I like it.
As far as the cans not catching anything - don't worry about it. My catch cans haven't 'caught' anything either.

If I put steel wool (no soap) in the Catch Can will it break up? Should I use some thicker kind made for dish washing that is oval shaped? Or should I use a sponge? Now I want to see what other brand/models have an inside to catch the residue.
These are first time pictures of my car on NASIOC, its very exciting for me.

Use the stainless steel steel wool. I use the dishwashing sponges with the green scouring pad on one side. I cut it into thin slices and stick them into the catch can. Never had any problems.
i will be posting a new writeup on the installation of a catch can with pics after work. Keep an eye out in the 2.0L motor section.
