what pipe is best to use when fitting an oil catch tank on a x16xe engine?

also once i move the pipe from its original place to the oil catch tank, do i block up the hole where i move it from?

Yeah you have to block that one up or fit it to the other pipe on your catch tank

but if you fit it to the other connection on the catch tank, wont it be pointless of even fitting a catch tank at all because the oil will just go into the catch tank and then out into the intake?

infrotn of oyur dipstick the 2 pipes connecting to the rocker cover...
leave the larger one, this is you block/crank breather.

the smaller of the 2, disconect the pipe, block it up.. run a new length of pipe from the rocker cover to a catch tank.

Youve got the right pipe there, the idea of a catch tank is to catch the oil from going into the inlet, in theory you should get oily air going into the tank, the oil stays in the tank and the breather gasses go back into your inlet to be burnt.

Although it is perfectly acceptable to just leave the other pipe on the catch tank open and vent it to atmosphere and then you would need to block up the pipe as you have with the red tape. Sometimes you can smell oil though when you do it that way
