    usually a little bit of oil accumulates there between oil changes/
    if you look at a 'regular' catch can you can see that most of them have a little screw or something alike at the bottom to empty it/

    Well, if it's an oil catcher, it is designed to collect oil. So one might inquire how to empty or remove the collected oil at some point? ;)

    If you're concerned enough about oil in your intake tract to install a catch can in the first place, being able to drain any accumulated oil makes sense.

    I'll be curious to find out how much oil your catch can catches.

    I had two options in mind either remove the breather filter and just snake in a small hose attached to a shop vac and suck it out, or I tap in one of these valves in the middles. I'm probably just going to shop vac the oil out since I'm assuming it will probably fill up maybe once to three time a year?

    Maybe after a few weeks of testing it in the summer heat I'll consider putting out a small series.

    Oil vapors comes from the hose attached to the top of the valve cover which is push out by positive crankcase ventilation. In the OEM set up that is usually sucked up back into the engines intake causing oil to build up within the intake manifold.

    Here's a better explanation of it Oil Catch Cans | Everything you need to know and more!

    Same here, the amount varies mostly on the health of your piston rings.

    I'll let you guys know when it actually fills up. (y)

    The only way to satisfy someone like that is to put a supercharged V8 in a Prius. Oh wait, that wouldn't satisfy them. Instead they would ridicule the Prius with a supercharged V8.

    looks great! I have had that back bumper on my ebay watch list for the longest time, lol. it has always been that, the seibon CF one, or #secretstuff. But im glad someone on PC has finally got the all around kit! Im excited for the finished product!

    If I may weigh in my 2 cents, I think itd look sick in a matte color. ;)(y)
