Forgive me if there’s an answer to this somewhere on the forum, but I have spent hours searching and found no direct answers. Where I live, we get -45°C weather for months on end. I plan on putting on a PCV catch can and I was wondering,

1. Is there anything I should be mindful of with the catch can, because of the ridiculous cold?

2. I’ve read time and time again I should vent the breather to atmosphere. A line leading under the car seems sketchy to me when the VT becomes a snow plow, and just a filter off the intake manifold could make a mess. Is running a line to a catch can with a filter on it the only option?

3. Would rubber hose work fine?

I also thought it would be neat to share these photos, from April 10th, to accentuate my point about the crazy North;

That’s what I meant by rubber hose, as that’s all the pictures I’ve seen, thanks for the clarification!

Catch cans may present major issues in extreme cold. In this case your options are leave it stock, vent breather lines under car properly, or breather lines to a heated catch can.
I have a solution in the works for the latter.....

Does that apply to a PCV catch can aswell?

Alright, I very much appreciate the insight! Would there be any worries about venting under the car with snow/salt/road grime?

Only if hose is setup in a way that it would freeze and be obstructed
I know I’m being dense, but would running the breather to a vented, insulated CC close by be a solution? For the breather side of course.

Can ideally needs to be heated by an electrical pad/circuit in very cold weather. Other options would be heated by engine coolant or by the heat in the engine bay in some way.
