    I nearly did this to my Golf then decided against it (More like couldn't get the hoses to fit).

    Looks good though.

    I used 19mm internal diameter pipe into a 22mm joiner and then I 19mm to 13mm reducer pipe to
    my 15mm catch can.

    19mm pipe just pushes on the crank case outlet and other 19mm pipe pushes into genuine. Pipe

    Can someone explain the advantages of having this, I'm hopefully going hybrid soon and this seems like a cheap mod?

    It cost me about £160 ish as i had full silicone hoses made in red

    its stops oil going i to the intake which ends up in the turbo inlet which is bad
    also stops the oil from there then reaching intercooler hoses and trust me it works ive had mine for about 8 months ive empties a full load and its about 1/5th the way full

    Because the standard system is designed to be maintenance free, whereas this method will require you to monitor it and empty it when full. The average motorist isn't going to want to do this, or even know how to.

    I'm sort of tempted, but the new common rail engine hasn't used a single drop of oil. Unlike my old BKD A3 which needed topping up regularly.

    Because most people here dont really have a clue what it does so if they dont know i doubt they will empty it so not worth the hassle by audi also
