The previous owner had a catch can setup on this blacktop sr. I assumed it goes back to the intake, but its open and leaks nasty shit all over the place.

I looked at the inlet pipe and the dude drove a fucking rod threw the opening for the piping.

I'm curious as to why the previous owner had it like this, and what can I do so its not leaking in the engine bay.

Previous owner was an idiot. A simple catch can goes between the valve cover and the intake pipe. Just buy a new one. Or be a baller and do an exhaust scavenging catch can to create a vacuum in your crank case to seat the rings better

How would I exactly set up an exhaust scavenging catch can? I know the concept of it, but have never seen a picture or diagram.

First, empty the catch can!
