If I ran a 3 port catch can in that setup would it be better?

Or would there be a better way of routing it?

Thanks David yet again!

I was told Normally the pcv goes into the manifold, but can run the crank case pcv into the intake before the turbo on a turbo car as it sucks it back through the engine for emissions

So does that mean you can plumb both the crankcase pcv and rocker cover to the intake pipe before the turbo which also has your air filter on the end? I.e.

Sorry I'd love a diagram I'm more a visual learner

Or alternatively just fabricate a turbo manifold at head port height like a higher mount turbo..

Sam suggested trying a high mount compressor on top of the alternator and try and fab up something for that on the drivers side.. Onwards and upwards

Thanks yet again David wow that's cool I didn't know it might be possible to get it all in there.

Any idea who did the custom opposite side install I'd love to have a chat!

Hi all just wondering if anyone has fitted an ac compressor on the alternator side of the engine block as opposed to the manifold side where the stock bracket would have gone?

This is what I mocked up and now got laser cut in heavy grade steel for the standard bracket but I was hoping to see if it's possible to move it to the other side of the block

Trying to work out how to position efi inlet and turbo and see if its possible to run ac as well.. Yes I know.I'm.asking a lot! I suspect the oil filter will get in the way

Hi all Ive been trying to gather information about preparing my engine for mild boost. From what ive read Nissan have done a good job of building stock strong. People mention lowering compression to prepare for boost via pistons head gasket or both..

Just wondering if someone could suggest a head gasket to use? And explain it like I'm 5 re what lowering the compression does?
