Default Oil Catch Can suggestion?

I think the next thing I need to get for my new-used 2011 Mazdaspeed3 is an oil catch can. I have searched around for recommendations but I am still unsure, and my requirements may be a little bit different.

My plan for the car is to keep it mostly stock (as it was when I got it). I am only replacing things that are worn out, or for preventative maintenance, which is where the OCC fits.

Since I do not plan to do anything to add power, I don't know if I need any of the fancier options out there. I am just trying to keep crap off the intake valves.

The other two considerations are
1) I don't want anything that sits too low or requires me to cut a hole in the plastic underliner
This seems to be the case with the Damond can I was considering. I actually don't have an underliner right now because the original one was destroyed due to a transmission leak. When I replace it I am considering an aftermarket aluminum one for protection.

2) I plan to use the car in cold conditions, and I hear that some cans are prone to freezing and clogging the PCV system. Is there a can that is more resistant to that happening?

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Get the DM kit, very quality kit. You don’t have to cut a hole if you don’t want to.

But then how can the can be checked/drained?
I still have the stock intake too, which makes some areas harder to reach.

Then you take the whole splash shield off when you do. Pretty much every kit out there mounts below the air box.

if you don't plan to mod your car, don't want to mess with triming plastics and finaly drives in freezeing conditions, just don't install an occ.

the crap on your valves is part off oil vapors but also from egr returns....reducing oil vapors won't help the egr.

And occ lines fulled of some oil + condensed humidity will freeze, block the breathing path and then, the engine bottom will take any other possible path to release the pressure. This include shooting oil from dip stick all over the engine. and oil + red hot manifold catch fire....Ask me how, i know...(my 2007 was totaled by fire because of this)
Turbo snowmobiles have the same issue and now, company started to use heated line to carry occ fumes, 1 metal tube carry vapors and the other carry heating coolant beside like our throttle body.

If you check for leaks and you didn't made a test under compressor pressure, you aren't done checking for leaks....
