not very good pics, but, I followed the directions sent with the can specific for a 5.7 hemi, installed between the hard plastic line that goes between the back of the block to the intake tract off the airbox

regardless, the piece of mind my throttle body isn't getting gummed up was worth the money
Well, after looking at your photos, here are my thoughts.

With the engine cover installed, I cannot see where you attached the black hose, or where the white hose attaches either.
I do see that you have a notch on the left rear of the engine cover that I do not have on mine. (Where your black hose is coming out).
My Catch Can is installed like this:

Left hose running from the PCV to the can, then the right hose from the Can to the intake.
With the engine cover on it looks like this:


If your can is installed correctly, but not collecting any gunk, I agree with you that the gunk is probably unable to be pushed up the hose into the Can.
Which means it is collecting in the hose or in the PCV valve itself, which I believe is not a good thing.
If you remove the hose from the PCV and gunk pours out, I think you will need to lower your Catch Can.

Just my thoughts,
I am not an expert and I didn't even stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, either.
