Default 4.7L Catch can install help!

I have looked every where I can possibly think of on this site and others. I don't see any pictures that explain how to install this can. Could someone please post some pictures of their setup and where the location of the PCV valve is. I understand that I can't use their setup for the bracket and I will find one tonight. I would like to install this tonight so a few quick pictures would be appreciated!

Thank you in advance.

This might help- Ya gotta look close because everything is black but I think if you click on my picture it will enlarge.
After you remove the engine shroud you will see a black plastic tube that extends from back to from of engine (has a couple of soft plastic elbows to help it mate up.
Remove that plastic hose and run long hose from back of engine to catch can- short hose from catch can to front of engine. After you got it all plumb'd- you can remove the hoses and trim to fit. Reinstall engine shroud if you like.
I just noticed that you have a 4.7 and not a 5.7- this may be of no help- sorry

I believe the PCV valve is located right on the top of the passenger side valve cover. Super easy to find. You might have to take off the stock air tube and resonator to get at it.

Obviously you know that all you need to do is install the catch can in between the PCV valve and the intake. As far as mounting goes many people put them in different places.... really it can be wherever you find most convenient. On 4.7's the most common place I've seen them is up beside the rad on the passenger side.

My assumption is you have a 5.7 hemi if not... never mind
Pretty bad assumption seeing as the title of the post says 4.7L catch can install help....

This might be a stupid question but what is the "rad"?

Radiator. Sorry, I'm just used to calling it rad for short.

I guess I am still confused. Here is what I think is the PCV valve and the interesting hose that seems to be too small. Am I missing something or is this not the right thing?

The PVC valve is located on the driver side valve cover, it goes to the back of the intake, remove your resonator box and you will see it, unplug the PVC valve from the tube that goes to the back of the intake, put a vapor tube from the catch can to this tube and the other tube to the PVC valve on the Valve cover, the plastic tube between the PVC and the Intake is hard plastic and you will need to cut it, cut it after the PVC valve connector then remove the plastic leftover on the PVC Valve.

maybe these pics will help

Asur to the rescue!!

Sorry, what I was referring to must be the intake for the crankcase.... I never looked that closely to see which was which.
