Where in line do Oil catch cans go?

Im Finally ready to take my V8 rx7 to the track but need to get a Oil catch can.

Where in line do I pipe it in?
What kind are you guys using?
Ebay catch cans do the job, right?

Thanks

Unless your engine has a serious oil puking problem, just look in your recycling bin for a coke bottle or 1 qt oil bottle. Zip tie it far enough away from your exhaust so it doesn't melt and run a length of heater hose from your valve cover to the bottle. If your track is generally right turns, the left valve cover should be sealed... and vice versa. If you are puking more than a couple drips of oil, loosly stuff a rag in the breather.... these are all old circle track tricks that street stock guys use.

You gotta use something to cover the DOHC V-TEC 5 Valve head.

Otherwise your V-6 rotating pistions will fling oil all over the place.

You gotta do more internet reading................

I learned everything I repete as gospel from there.
