Default Elite Engineering Catch Can Hose Connections

I have searched the forum and haven't found a good set of install pictures for the Elite Engineering Catch Can on the LS7. My big question is how the hose connections go. From the top of the Catch Can to the engine, does this connection go to the top connector or the bottom connector on the LS7? I do not want to mix up the connections. Do the hoses line up (top of catch can to top connector on LS7)? Then the two bottoms to each other.

Which person has their connections correct? It seems by searching on this forum, I can find people installing their Catch Can hoses both ways.

Top to Top



Top to Bottom

Are you guys using the clamps that came with the can? It is easy enough to install them by the catch can connectors, but by the engine is got to be really tough.
