    4BB698E2-82FA-4EF1-99CA-B6203B654AB3.png Hey guys was wondering if anyone is running this plate and if so is it fine to use for a one catch can system with a corksport turbo running mild boost? Thanks.

    Shouldn't have a problem running it, so long as you have a PCV plan mapped up. You would need a check valve or factory PCV valve somewhere since this plate eliminates it at the factory location.

    If you have any insecurities about it, there are plenty of vendors that make them with other configurations (Full Race, Damond, Perm, and others).

    What route would you run for safest and best flow?

    Well... the way I have mine set up now...

    PCV plate (with straight hose barb)...>
    Catch can...>
    90* hose elbow/OEM PCV valve...>
    Check valve right at Manifold.

    The check valve locks boost out of the crank case, and the OEM valve keeps excessive vacuum from being pulled through the check valve by the manifold. Catch can never get's boost exposure.

    I have 2. One on the crackcase/intake manifold, and another one on the valve cover/turbo.

    It might be overkill for a k04 set up, but it's working well on a BNR s4.

    I'm running this, stock PCV setup (with aftermarket PCV valve). Seems to do a good job of keeping oil out, so far as I can tell.
