    Catch Can location

    Wondering where you guys have fitted your catch can's to.

    Get some pics up.

    Seeing pictures from what the petrol boys empty out of their catch cans, thinking the diesel is a more oily engine and seeing the amount of oil seeping out of the EGR blank, I thought it would be a good idea.

    not sure.
    It needs to be accessible so you can drain it but at the same time I don't want pipes all over the engine bay making it look messy.
    I did think about under the plastic battery tray but not sure i'd drain it or the running of the pipes.

    Just had a quick look at my bay,it would maybe fit near the power steering res,theres a space there on mine.
    S for draining,how about some sort of quick release bracket so you can lift the can upwards then put a bottle or something under it?

    thing is, they are cheap enough on ebay.
    I don't want to start redesign it and costing me more than buying a cheap unit.

    I'll take a look tomorrow at mine. I might be able to hide it under a cover.

    Why not just setup an oil seperator and pipe it back to the sump? That way, the blowby gasses are "filtered" and the oil drops out of suspension and runs back to the engine, and theres nothing to empty.

    How would you put it back to the sump?

    I don't think I got the room for a pipe in, pipe out and then some where for it to filter.
    It all seems a lot more work than a catch can or even a vent to atmo.

    wouldn't a vent to atmo lead to oil dripping onto the road though?

    Not necessarily as the catch can should in theory 'catch' the oil and just release the vapours it would only throw it onto the roads if it was getting quite full or over flowing.

    Yeah but its never an oil slick that pores out the back.
    I would not vent to atmo any way.
    I'd rather a can or back in the engine.

    BMWs still use a oil seperater today.

    Might be an idea to see what oil separators I can use.

    Yes. forgot to post.

    My can will fit below the coolant bottle.
    Loads of room and easy to drain as well.
    So I'm going to put it there, need to get some pipe ordered up and get it routed.

    I got some 19mm stainless steel pipe work here to go with it.
    need to convert the 15mm inlet and out let on the can to 19mm and get the pipes ordered up.

    There is a bracket on the wing that you can bolt the catch can bracket to.
