I should probably put everything in one place on this, but here are some links to help you along

Cal. Air cleaner or cold air intake?
catch can & cold / hot air intake how to

Keep in mind that the Cali turbo sits quite high compared to the other models, so you may have some fitment issues with a turbo that sits lower on the engine. Also mine is in a 107 chassis not a 123 or 126 so that may present some other issues as well.

I'll bet you could easily adapt the poleshady solution with my housing strategy
