Cn90 I can place it higher if I remove the hood pad. As it sits now it is slightly touching the pad, when I open the hood there's a very light coating of brown dust on the can and top hose. That pad is pretty damn thick though, if removed id say there would be 2" of clearance above.

I'll post after a few thousand miles of driving. After a couple hundred there is oily watery sludge in the can while the intake hose remains clean. So the can is doing its job. I'll see how much is in there next oil change which is coming up soon. I'm changing the OFH gasket as well since that's the only thing left leaking oil.
