I use one catch can that connects to the PVC's on each valve cover.
The vents on the back of the Stillen plenum (inlet manifold) are connected to what I can't remember now. I'll have look later and edit the post if I work it out.

Which catch can are you using?

That back connection is the brake booster

Yes one is for brake booster and the other connects to both the (smaller) hoses on the valve covers via a T piece. The larger hose which on one valve cover actually connects to my catch can.
Not sure of brand as my shop fitted mine and there in no brand name on it.
I'll try and take a pic later.

Currently I have a filter on all 4 outputs on the valve covers, ideally I would love a soho coolant/catch can combo but I just can't justify that $750 price tag for one.

Yea that price is pretty steep!

So breather filters on each hole on the valve cover? How does it run? Any issues?
Which model filter did you go with?

Same thing on the passenger's side (hidden by the stillen manifold). It's a bit janky but it works good enough, not "beautiful" by any means. However, if you are the LEAST bit sensitive to fumes/smells I would highly not recommend it, try to get the filters or catch can as far away from the passenger side cabin air filter as possible.
