Is it better to run the fumes back to the intake manifold or just release them to the atmosphere (ground in my case)? :?
Definately run it back into the intake.

sadly, we do

I saw the one writeup that had them point it at the ground... and I was thinking, why on earth does this person even have a catch can? They should just run a straight line to the ground. But when I do this tomorrow, I will be sure to run it back into the intake manifold I'm just trying to figure out how to do it with my ga16de, since I have two lines coming from the valve cover... one to the intake manifold and one to the intake pipe.. should I plug the one part coming off the valve cover, plug the pipe coming from the intake and run the catch can on the other side or what?

And what is the purpose of that 3rd line?

yes I know. Doesn't the

yes I know. Doesn't the other line do the exact same thing (the one that runs to the intake pipe) ? But its worse since it has to travel through the throttle body as well?

You only need to do the one

You only need to do the one going to the intake manifold, I think the one going to the arm only carries fumes and not the other crap.
