    Oil Catch Can/Tank?? TDI

    Hi People,

    ok after cleaning my egr and intake etc - i have a A4 2ltr TDI 170 de dfp and stage one chipped.

    short drive and had to take the egr off to address a small leak on the manifold ( was too safe on the tightening ) but there was a lot of oil knocking about coating the anti shudder and egr

    should i install an oil catch can? benefits? recommendations

    Wouldn't make much difference IMO. I'd just have the EGR mapped out and blank it off.

    thats the plan when this egr dies - im just concerned about the amount of oil that is in the intercoolers and piping to inlet manifold. know it will burn it off but seems like adding more to the cocking effect.
