Default Catch Cans on a FI Z

I know there are a few topics about this on the forum, but i didnt see any specific to FI cars. So here it goes:

I plan on running my TS dual catch can setup with my soon to be installed BP turbo kit. Unlike most universal catch cans on the market each TS can actually has three inlets/ outlets. On an NA application one inlet/ outlet from each can attaches and breathes from the intake charge piping, however my understanding is this is a big no, no on an FI build. Instead each can should breath to the atmosphere (please correct me if im wrong).

So Im planning on running the following (as depicted in the attached). The orange circles are remote mounted crank filters, the green lines connect each catch can to its respective filter for breathing, the yellow line connects the two catch cans and the red line connects the each catch can to the respective valve cover.

Would this work? Are there any flaws? Any input would be appreciated.

It's not going to work and you should sell them to me. In all honesty I have no clue, but I love the way under your hood looks.

Must be early for me because I'm having a hard time comprehending your routing. My setup is a little different because of a different turbo set up and I have one can. I have the PCV valves routed to the "In" of my can, then the "Out" routed back to the front of the intake manifold...nothing is going to atmosphere. However the tubes from the outlets behind my PCV valves are routed to another can then to the intake pipe. Sounds kinda confusing without pics. I catch a lot of oil though.
