    Mine smells like arse inside anyway haha, I'll run it as far down as I can and hopefully it will all go underneath as apposed to above. Prawns car always used to smell oily and smokey inside too, I wonder if this is why.

    I'm removing the catch can, leaving the T piece and PCV hoses hooked up as they are. And then using the output on the old T Piece which went to the catch can to run down to the bottom of the engine bay where I will have it vent to atmosphere without a filter.

    I'll remove the PCV puck and fit a 19mm bung in its place.

    This is mine on its winter wheels.

    Notice how narrow it is in the back, waiting longer wheel bolts so I can mount the 20mm spacers

    And now it start to seem that the winter wheels will be necessary ;)

    Right its been a long time, the sun was out the car was clean-ish it was a good time to get the Lumix out and get some shot of my car everyone is asking for, I managed to get a bit of video with the new GoPro but there not the best as i'm still playing with it. I didn't use full throttle shifting so i took it easy if you would like to call it but the test was from 70 to 140

    Look forward to seeing it mate. Was that video taken down on the m1 by any chance on the stretch towards the post office? Also the liquid gauge, does it display oil temperature on apy s3's?

    Bit late to ask maybe, but whats the benefit in doing this mod to the catch can or is it a purely cosmetic mod to the engine bay?

    Me I'm guessing.

    Do you mean in the fitting of the catch can, or the removal of the catch can?

    I could have done that but then no one else would benefit from it, and as its just an extension of the convo being had I didnt think this would bother anyone. I hope you agree that my question and its answer would be valid to all new comers or those who have not carried out this mod.
