A quick cruze through ebay showed once you get to cans that have removable tops, your getting close to the already baffled can price.
I put baffles in my free-be can I got from a friend a long time ago- I guess in my younger days I enjoyed a days worth of DIY, JB Weld, runs to home depot etc. Now... psssh, I'll spend another $15-20 to get the thing properly built from the start.
Bleh, one could go into further detial, and there are sites with pictures and explanations on PCV internal design and how it regulates flow etc, but this should get anyone caught up to as why one uses X can, and why they have it plumbed Y way.[/QUOTE]
pic's of the 3.4 set up? i dont have a can,,,,, can you dum it down also, running a filter on the pcv valve like every other ricer is bad for the oil

Nice break down lol. I guess the rest of the break down is: No baffle- for race car in a vent to atmosphere setup- or ricer underhood bling. Baffles- street car.
I'll get pics shortly. Its next to the cruise control box on the passenger side, intercepting the plumbing from the PCV valve over the exhaust cam cover passenger side, that goes into the barb just post TB.
What you catch? Here are some google pics:
This one didn't even have baffles, would have caught lighter colored crud if it had, it only caught heavy drops of oil
Mmmm MMmmm good.
That Greddy on the top caught a little dark fluid, just like the Greddy/copy on the bottom caught also. Cans with baffles catch more thoroughly and get the milky mixture, and a lot more quantity.
Here is what a Michi can caught
Thats all the crap that would just condense back into the oil if you do a vent to atmosphere setup (as very little actually vents to atmosphere), or what goes into your combustion process in OE configuration.
I had one of those BIG Greddy Blue fakes that was an eye sore in my stealth OE like engine bay (NRG has black ones but they come at the NRG price tag). The blue can did alright as I spent a lot of time getting mesh and scrap together, cut, put holes, attach etc to make some baffling. This can is good to go from the start and I expect to catch even more fluid between oil changes.
I'm gonna resurrect this thread with a new, somewhat related question.
How are you guys blocking off the oddly large throttle body ports?
My 3rz is in an offroad buggy, & hydro locking the engine after a short stint on it's side far trumps any normal PCV systems benefits. I'm looking for a decently clean way of blocking it off though. (So no "shove a pipe plug in a hose" answers please )
