a catch-can would be a much better setup... you'd still retain proper PCV, and eliminate any dirty, oily residue that would have entered the intake without the can.

it's hooked up like that for a reason; the PCV requires a vacuum to operate properly... by disconnecting the breather from the intake, youre removing that vacuum.

if this mod is making a difference in power, i'd say its so small that you wouldnt notice. i know youre claiming that you 'can feel a difference', but i highly doubt thats the case. a quick trip to a dyno might prove you right though. there are people on this forum that sware every day that they 'feel' a power difference in some insignificant mod they did... your mind can be VERY deceiving, and its hard, if not impossible, to feel an extra hp or two, using only your senses, and no actual measurement tool.

All a catch can does is separate the oil mist from the crankcase gases before it goes into the engine to be burned. So your throttle body and intake manifold stay clean. You have to drain it every now and then but thats it.
