crankcase breather setup

Anyone know for sure if -10an line will be a big enough breather hose for my breather setup?...I was planning on welding -10an bungs onto my valve covers and then running a hose from each valve cover to a breather tank.

I have read in other threads people using -10 and it working just fine. I went with -12 just to be different. If you need pics let me know.

I used -12an also. I welded two -12an bungs to the rear of each valve cover and tacked in a Moroso oil deflector underneath. Each side has it's own breather catch can in the wheel well. When the turbo kit gets installed the end of this month I have a GM electric evap pump that we are going to plumb into the pass side between the catch can and the valve cover. the pump is going to come on at 3lbs of boost, Racetronix sells a complete wiring kit with hobbs switch. All it needs is key'd 12v, ground and vac/boost source to mount the Hobbs.

ok cool thanks for the info guys...pics are always good if you have some...Although i dont think im going to get that technical with a pump and all. I will be spending enough money on the fittings, hose and catch can. Try to keep it fairly cheap and the regular lines to a catch can should work fine for my app.

You me both! I hope to start it up next Sunday the 22nd if everything goes well. The cam corder will be running.

Doing a lot of wiring this weekend. My head hurts. If I were color blind I'd be screwed.

Is there a build thread I missed somewhere by chance?
