    Made the car feel much more smoother to drive, and already started to collect oil vapour and i only drove about 15miles
    the best thing is the nice red hoses in the black colourless bay

    It was custom made by derby performance hoses, cost me£50 for the hosing i will have to check what sized hosing i used i cant quite remember but its custom made by DPH, slowly progressing towards a turbo dynamics stage 2 hybrid, next on my list is a backbox delete

    The gases coming out of the can goes back into the intake system & not to air, which is good as its illegal anyway & not good for the enviroment.

    They should of fitted a level indicator aswell.

    As said.
    A lot of people use tiny filters and just vent through that to air. They are sold as catch can filters.

    Ive run catch cans on previous cars, and always vented to air through a filter. A sight / level gauge is very handy. Though once you work out roughly how quick yours fills, you will know when to empty it ;)

    Thats looks awfully similar to the Allard version, I would maybe attach a sensor of some type to the can, to light an led in car to know when to empty.

    £50 per effing hose, you were robbed tbh for that hose length, I know silicone hoses arent that cheap, as I bought 9 metres of 5mm ID hoses today for £30 approx, but thats very long length & yours are 1ft each if that for a what 20mm id, damn he was rubbing his hands together.

    Nice! This is one I would like to do...

    Does the cover fit back on? Guess it'll need a trim where the pipes come out to the can

    I think its a pretty nice bay could do with some more colour or design but thats up to the owner, get a CAI or do some wrapping in there or install a catch can theres always room for improvement

    Catches the oil thrown out the breather hose, that goes into the intake system, through turbo & into intake manifold leaving thick buildup inside manifold & generally making a mess of egr, imf etc.

    Just measure the internal diameters & buy some silicone hoses.

    Best to measure the rocker hose and intake pipe mate i haven't had time due to working then just measure the coolant tank inlets and get some hoses made

    If there's no catch can, would the oil end up going through the turbo and out the exhaust?
