    Haha nice one. Make sure it's clipped up tight with jubilee clips. My 1 way valve popes out the hose once and I lost my brakes!

    some people may not like it because it looks cheap although it does the same job as a normal catch can the reason for the clear hoses broke up all the black in the engine bay also can see in the pics all the stuff that would have been going back in the engine.

    Bit of a thread revival but is anyone interested in starting a new group buy for this can, as I bought a cheap ebay jobbie, not happy with it, and want something that looks and performs well. Let me know if anyone else is up for it.

    interesting. If there is some interest I will go back to the guy with some rough costs. Any idea what the costs were last time? I suppose they are in this thread somewhere. Will take a look

    These cans are really good guys. Tam has a non baffled one filled with brilo pads and it doesn't do anywhere near as good a job as these ones.

    Because the hockey puck is ment to be on it, it's ment to keep a negative pressure on the crankcase?

    Although I am tempted to just get a filter on there.

    Well I don't think it's meant to work like a oneway valve, they just maintain a pressure. So I think they will blow down both ways, that or I'm wrong, and mine is broken. Mine hasn't pulled anything into the vary an really, been on there a couple months. But yeah, think il just get a filter on there at some point

    $95 each inc. Shipping to my address at the moment. Will need to see how much it will cost me to ship on. Probably about £4 each? Asked for a price on 10 to see if we can get that many takers first.

    There will be duty to pay on them when they arrive, it could become a complex group buy this.

    Slightly off topic here but does anyone have a part number for the hose that goes to the hockey puck in this picture (with the two brackets attached)? Mine's cracked and the diagrams Audi have are of a completely different look/design!

    right, been doing some investigating on duty and VAT. From the calculations I have made, should come out at around £75 delivered per can. That includes VAT and duty. Wish I had done this before buying the Ebay ****. I will start a new post I think so others know what we are doing, without having to read through 20 pages.

    That image is only usefull if venting back to the TIP which I wouldn't recommend. Vent to atmosphere and keep the boost hoses clean.

    You can put a filter on the outlet of the can, but might make the inside smell of oil or I think most people run a length of pipe from the can to the back of the car venting out the back.
