if you decide to go dual catch can, this is how it is set up...
**** off with your candy paint jobs and spoilers that are 8x too big , I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let... lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may.
If so, then if you connect a can inline with that, it will catch the oil vapor when the valve is open. If the valve is not open, then there would be no flow through there, but the other can will remove the vapors from the crankcase(during periods of boost). I don't think there is a need to connect the second can to the intake (always at vacuum), simply place it in between the crankcase port and the PCV valve to remove oil vapors when the valve is open.
If I am wrong, please correct me, but that is my understanding of how it all works.

What type of filter media is in the new filter?

Yep that it does... That would probably make a good medium for filtration. I'm heading to HD or Lowes in the am to pick up my parts.

this was pretty easy, thanks for the write-up. I used the same filter that the OP used, bought it at home depot.
I noticed a small drop of oil on the rim of the inlet hose when i took it off, so im glad im putting this catch can on.
Ended up using the stock inlet lines though, just cut a small piece from it, and attached the hose on both ends. looks pretty clean. i will get some pics of it posted this evening.
now, on to de-badging!

do i really need this? if i have a cool air intake? + full muff? does everyone need one? even a stock wrx?
The theory is that you might fractionally extend the life of your turbo by keeping a tiny amount of oil, water, and fuel mix from making its way into your intake. You'll be fine with out doing this mod.
On the other hand if you believe that it does something significant, then YES, it will have the same benefits for someone w/ a stock WRX as it does for a modified one. So you should probably do it. Maybe.
Besides, if you don't do it and your turbo dies prematurely you will always wonder if it would have saved you.
Hope this helps, T.J.
