    diesel catch can?

    Morning ya' ll,

    Was having a chat with the lads last might about simple tdi mods,and the mention of a tdi catch can makes a vast intake improvement, now I have heard this about petrol turbo cars but never a tdi, it looks like this thing Darkside Developments - M&H ProVent 200 Oil Catch Can / Breather System
    Anyone tried it and had good results?

    I can see why it's better to burn clean air. But I can also see why its beneficial to mildly oil the cool side of the turbo.

    Well with a catch tank, you stop oil vapour going into the turbo, inlet, intercooler.
    So with a catch tank you burn cleaner air. But there's less oil on the turbine on the cool side of the turbo.
