CCV side caught 3 .oz of oil and PVC side caught 1 .oz oil. If not would have went into the intake.

My only beef with the Mishimoto setup is the silicone hoses. Turns out, silicone should never be used with oil. The oil sweats through and makes my garage stink. I guess this is obvious to materials experts (I found out after I googled it), but I didn't know that and I'm guessing Mishimoto didn't know that either since I'm on my third set of hoses from them since I got the system (they didn't charge me for replacement hoses, but they do charge shipping). I'm going to measure all the end diameters and buy the three gauges of rubber (oil compatible) hoses, some elbows, couplers, and a T connector, and just make my own hose setup for it. Braided stainless steel would also work, but I'm not sure this application actually needs them. Sure would look nicer, though, although I am partial to stealth look of black hoses.

Definitely let me know the measurements then so I can just build my own setup if you don’t mind! I’d rather not spend 450 bucks if I can just buy my own hoses and buy a couple cheap baffled catch cans. I found oil in my intake so now I’m incredibly paranoid lol

Why install a Catch Can? I read up on it and it seems like it's only something of value to run the car into high miles.

They released a revised hose set that supposedly doesn't weep, if you're on your third set from them I would think they would have sent you those by now. I have the original silicon hoses and they weep a little, but not to the point where it really bothers me a lot. Still, would love to get my hands on the revised hose set.

Braided lines would look sweet.

Which zzp one? Don’t order the cheap one! They have a new one out. If so get one for the CVC and PCV side. I went with Mishi Moto. Good! It’s worth it. Remember if you drive hard the system will catch the vapor. If you drive easy you might not see as much, either way you don’t have to worry about oil going into the intake. Double check it’s installed right as well. I made a correction on YouTube to the install if they don’t send you all the parts.

Here are some pics . Speaking of weeping my zzp larger throttle body came with a silicone elbow that had oil droplets on the outside of it before the catch can install . Is it ruined or what ? Can't post pic file size to big . I don't have time to play with this crap .
