POD install - vent collector location?

Getting ready to do the POD install. While waiting for parts to arrive, I'm trying to visualize how the crankcase vent breather and collection bottle get connected and where does the filter and collector mount?

Also, how many people go with just the breather filter and skip the collection bottle (and how much oil ends up coating the engine if the proper oil level is maintained)?

I just used a PVC valve tapped back into the pods.

Do you have any pics of that setup?
Any special considerations/instructions for tapping the pods? I assume you split the vent hose after the PVC, and tapped both POD filters, is that correct?
