Catch can for single turbo N54?

Looking for a new catch can for my build. I will have a single turbo AD kit and was wondering if the BMS can is compatible.
I know AD makes their own can but $450 seems pretty steep for a catch can

I went ahead and got the BMS one.

I had to trim one hose which is expected but otherwise it was a quick and painless bolt on affair. Combined with my RB PCV I have no more smoke spewing out!

What causes the smoke in the first place?
And thanks for the update. Guess I'll get a BMS one as well.

Oil being pulled into the intake and then burned off in the cylinders. The catch can separates the oil and air so only the air recirculates back through the intake.
Every so often you will want to empty the catch can. I have heard this is good to do every oil change.

Thank you.

I would like to ask you the following since I am in the boat you were once in...

why did you choose the RB plate, and not the Motiv plate? I also heard with the delete plate you can run external thermostat.
