Yeah my Pcv was blowing out too,but i fixed that and now the breather is..i think that its blowing out because the grommet is to loose and it is a meg shifted set up...lol...im thinking if i get the right grommet and breather i think i should be ok..Im also making double the boost you are...im at 14 psi....

not at the moment. drilled two big holes got some groments and some 90 degree elbows from lowes (lol) got some rubber hose and clamped them on to the catch can. i think theres a thread called "let me see your catch can set ups". there should be a lot of threads on the subject

A hole in each valve cover. There's like a rubber thing the with a bolt through it. When you tighten it it expands out and plugs the hole tight. Can't remember what it's called

i got one of the breather tanks from racepartsolutions and ran a -12 line from each valve cover to the catch can and plugged the intake where the pcv goes. couldnt tell u how it works cause its a turbo mustang who has one that runs lol on a side note i didnt have access to a welder at the time so i used jb weld to put the -12 fittings in. seems to hold up fine when its on jackstands lol i'll prob find two more driver side valve covers and redo it eventually
