Ok, I wasn't insinuating your part was bad btw, just that the plastic junk they use with many parts on this car suck...the pcv is one. The check valve either gets broken, carbon built up, or the top diaphram fails, but yes, removing anything boost from it will likely extend it'slife greatly.

I was looking at the ECS one, but heard issues of the hoses not being a proper fit. The way this one mounts seems to be better as well.
You can do the dipstick test, pull it out while the car is running and if the idle doesn't change. That may not mean that it's not bad however. You can also see a small hole on the top section of the pcv off to the side, cover that hole and see if idle does anything different, that can be the source of a pretty big leak since the rubber diaphram is in the top section. Also, excessive oil can be ano there section.

If the intake works with the factory PCV system, I don't see why not as we're using OEM Norma connectors.

To the engine, yes, but the mounting bracket and hose length was designed for the GTI and one for the GLI. The Tiguan has a similar mounting point, but I have not tried it, and it's only a single screw mount vs dual.

What about hose length to aftermarket intake?

So there is a little slack to the lines then? Enough to accommodate a few inches off?

I'm down, it would be the perfect time to compare to the newly installed ECS Catch Can which I listed my concerns on their layout and setup in their product launch thread.

Anyone else want to see a review on this?

Arin?

For the record, there a several major differences between the ECS one I see right off the bat, this would make an interesting run down and review on unboxing, installation and direct comparison to the ECS, 034 and Forge one I've run in the past. Most importantly the major advantages of the APR CC vs. the ECS CC.

APR Presents the MK6 Oil Catch Can System

This is like the ECS CC on steroids! I'm getting one unless it does not fit the IE intake for any reason. Hyde16 reviews FTW!
You got my vote for a review!
