Silly stupid question.

OK, I have a maggie and LS2.

Got around to installing my funky custom corvette catch can with a custom made bracket. It's a nice billet piece with a colour that's an exact match to infrared.

I used the pcv return tube that typically goes into the side of the intake tube on the LS2.

Valley hose went to the top of the can through filter element and had a return tube going back into the side of the intake tube.

Is this correct? Can't seem to find any other return hose after throttle body on the maggie that I can use.

Trying to figure out just how much oil is blowing by.

Help always appreciated.

Not too sure how its connected on an ls2, but I can tell you there is a lot of oil blowing by. This pictures shows how much oil was collected after about 10 days on my ls6 with a maggie.

Ermmm.... Googled on this like 12 year old with his first laptop but no show. Not a single pic or walkthrough,

Someone must've put a can with a maggie. I mounted the can just fine, just curious as to how it's routed with the maggie and what return line was used and if any sort of check valves were used.

Seems this is the closest anyone's ever come, and it's on a vette;

Thanks.

Go to the FI section on ls1gto.com. All kinds of info in there.

Thanks. Not a great deal but it has been done. Seems a bit more complicated than an install without the maggie.

Looks like I may need some valves and a couple of catch cans on the driver side.

Sorry for the delay, was raining the last few days, anyhow here you go. This is how I have it on the ls6. From the driver's side valve cover into the catch can then out (bottom hose) to the passenger side of the maggie. Remember this is on an LS6 motor.

Wow, that looks totally different from mine. I don't seem to have anything going into passenger side of the maggie. Did you use any check valves at all or anything above regular hoses?

Do you mind taking a pic of your driver side also and marking the hoses like you did in the pic?

Are you catching any oil?

I'll have to go take some pics.

Thanks from that.
