    Hi Mate yo fit it to the pipe that comes off the cyclone on the rear of the cam cover, a rubber hose comes off that attaches to a metal transverse pipe that then goes to the inlet after the MAF.


    On an Atmos venting system block the metal end at the rear with a piece of 15mm oil proof hose, and then feed the hose from the cyclone to the catch tank then vent a second pipe down to the bottom of the bulkhead.



    On a closed cycle system, vent from the cyclone via the catch tank, then back to the transverse pipe on the left so that fumes are drawn back into the intake stream.

    Vehicle : vectra-c

    Trim : sri

    Engine : cdti

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 98,000

    Default

    To vent to atmos simply attach a length of garden hose into the end of your circled hose (part where it goes into the metal pipe on-top of the engine), Then part the same metal pipe/ rubber hose at the other eng (front of engine) & blank rubber hose as shown earlier (with a large bolt or short term i used a short length of 15mm copper pipe with the end bent over).
