Default Purchased used Catch can, need advice installing

I Bought this used Billet Aluminum CC off Craigslist today for $20. I am Installing on my 2012 Hemi


Do I need to buy some hose? If so what Diameter? I can deal with changing the diameter of fittings on my catch can, just need to know what size dodge uses and what kind of fitting am I connecting to?. I want to purchase the parts I need before I start pulling out the tools. I will figure out the mounting as I go. Speaking of go, I have no idea where the hoses go which leads to the next paragraph.....

I have a screen/brillo type filter in the top area of the catch can. Where do I run/connect the hose to on the truck that connects to the top of this can shown, which has the extra chamber and filter as shown below? Once I get that end figured out I suppose the other end goes???

I just measured the factory piece I pulled off the truck. Its 1/2" inner diameter. It connects from by the firewall under the plastic engine cover and goes to right beside the intake.

I would run from the firewall to the top of your catch can , and then come out of the lower fitting to go to the intake. If you hook it up that way and forgot to check the can it would fill to the lower fitting and run into the intake like stock does.

Hope this helps. I could go take some pics of mine tomorrow if need.

Excellent.

All complete, just as it got dark and thanks to you. Appreciate the help and response. Rep to ya!!

Engine a tad dusty, just got back from a camping trip last weekend. Quick pic of a quick install and test. I am going to redo some clamps as they are horrid looking and too larger but other than that I am not to concerned what it looks like. Was a used CC anyways and I rarely lift the hood.



What excites me is... I think it took care of the pinging with my BD tuner.
Short test run and it was SMOOTH AS BUTTER, fresh and crisp. Amazing MOD for my setup
