    I was talking to a friend last night ( who has worked on a few 20v conversions) and he said "just get a can that vents to air ( filtered or unfiltered) blank the hole in the TIP where the breather hose normaly goes and fit a pipe from the "top hat" plastic breather on the rocker cover to the inlet on the catch can??
    is this ok? or a bad way to do it?
    He also mentioned fitting the catch can to the side of the batery box/ tray???

    Same as karl :)

    Mines vented behind the subframe as it's stinky in traffic when vented just under the bonnet

    I vented mine back to the TIP - just easier with OZ regulations and not smell. I am also not tracking the car so getting that last bit of fuel dilution was not as important to me

    I did mount on battery frame as I did not have enough room behind the TIP - fits well and straight runs to the can so easier to install the hose and as I am not venting to atmosphere easier to drain
