Catch Can set up

Well I am in major need to install a catch can or two to my stang. I'm currently running 11lbs on my dss 331 engine and am getting a little blow by. I am running breathers on both valve covers with the pcv blocked off. My question is.... Do I need to run two catch cans? Also where do I get the fittings that will go into the holes on my valve covers to go to the catch can? I was just going to run heater hose. I have the popular "Ford Racing Valve Covers" Thanks for any help.

Try this or search "catch can" in the Turbo section

What size catch can lines and fittings?

Alright I just ordered the same entire setup as you. Another question... is the breather on the Morosso tank large enough to compensate for both valve covers ventalation?

Yes, it's plenty of ventilation. You won't have any issues. Unless of course you have some sort of excessive blow-by. But it would have to be pretty bad.

Perfect. Yeah I dont think there is too much blow-by but my vc breather sits right next to my down pipe so whenever I get into full boost it will smoke. Cant have this anymore too dangerous. Thanks for your help the serial numbers you posted made things much easier.

No problem, glad it helped.

Did you make sure to order two of each hose end (2 straight, 2 90's) and 3 total male -12 bungs? You need one bung for each VC and one to add to the catch can since it only comes with 1 from Moroso.

I think I specified all that in the post but could easily be looked over.
