    I'd check the insides and make sure it's an actual catch can, and not just letting vapor blow through first.
    I really like the way aaawelder put it: "do not include yourself in this circuit"

    the mr2 guys reported having problems with the smaller sized openings on some of the catch cans they used, mister3 ended up doing a GB on one that had the appropriate opening sizes.

    Yeah dude I had a cheapo catch can with small fittings, it caused too much of a restriction in the PCV and my car smoked like a biatch.

    Yes, it needs to be at least the size of the PCV valve off the valve cover. An ideal catch can setup will also recirculate the "caught" oil back to the pan.
