Where do you live? Looks like a lot of condensation in that can.

Wisconsin...

Yes, it was a 50/50 mix of oil and water. lol

My e46's ccv system actully froze last year which caused the crankcase preasure to reverse and spit all of the engine oil out of my valve cover starting my engine on fire. Luckily the only damage that was done was to a couple of wires and the valve cover itself. #alwayscarryafireexstinguisherinabmw

I cannot wait to plug the intake ports and be done with the original pcv system.

I figured had to be a northern state! I'm very familiar with the can full of "snot" as I like to refer to it as. Have to empty mine every few fill ups in the winter in NC. For whatever reason, I'm still hesitant to plug the intake ports.

Once you go External PCV there literally is no reason to NOT plug these ports... as at that point they serve zero purpose in life. Unplugged they are a "ticking time bomb", albeit at very low levels in the grand scheme of the worlds problems... but still get it done when you have the opportunity. It is always reversible as well if you wish to go back to stock, sell car, etc.

I remember you saying that plugging the head isn't needed with the rb pcv low/high side?

Anyone know where to get a mount for the Mishimoto catch can? Mine is just hanging on by a zip tie.

You have to be careful to interpret words correctly as it is not "needed" for the external PCV to function as intended. The masses seem to get very confused when vendors write things in certain ways, as the next vendor will say "It is not needed for our setup as it is the other" in order to make one fitting superior over the other- when they are missing the entire point. The thing is regardless of what adapter you are running in this location, whether it is an external PCV fitting, PCV delete fittings, or even an aftermarket valve cover for that matter... it is just silly NOT to plug the intake ports asap otherwise you are leaving a vulnerability exposed. Please remember you can NOT plug these ports with the standard internal PCV in place, this can only be done when using an External PCV setup OR by using a PCV delete fitting for VTA arrangements.
