It comes from under the inlet and goes up to the breather pipe on the rocker mate

Take a look at this, you can get silicone replacement that replaces the white one on the right and the T piece



The replacement

In the pic above it shows the pcv facing the front of the car. On mine it's to the left of the t piece right next to the pipe with a 90 degree bend . So my pcv is before the t piece facing the passenger side of the car. So in the pic above where the pcv valve is its just straight pipe.

I've replaced the upper and the one below the upper pipe (the wiggly one) and it was quite annoying to replace due to the lack of working space. Also the one-use clips are a bitch to unclamp. Havent replaced the one facing the front.

Have you still got the pcv valve in place.

Yes, the silicone replacement for the first below pipe only replaces the T-section

I have none of that crappy pipe work left. I removed it all and put in a catch tank which now vents to atmosphere. Benefit is no more oily crap going back through the intake. No more boost/vacuum leaks because the Pcv system that's left is totally separate. But be aware if you don't use a catch tank with 19mm inlets to match your current pipes from the rocker cover and oil filter housing you risk doing some damage as the pressure builds up, I tried and fired the dipstick out along with a load of oil.

Don't you get an oily smell in the car though. How hard is it to fit a catch tank.

Im not using a Catch can, but have rerouted the upper crankcase pipe to a aluminium joiner which connects to piping under the car (in proximity to my cat).

So I've disconnected the hockey puck thingy. Check the clear braided tubing in the pictures below.
