    Hi guys
    Has any one put a breather on the rocker cover? I've seen a seat with it so was wondering if it's worth doing?
    I've had a look at mine and I don't quite no how I would do it as the 19mm hose turns 90 degrees then attaches to a metal tube,
    Any advice would be appreciated :) thanks

    I think its another way of doing a catch tank.when fitting a catch tank to my engine,I used a 19mm hose to the turbo intake pipe which acts as a breather,so im guessing its the same principle

    You wont want to put a breather straight on the rocker cover, a lot of fumes come out of there when the engine is on full chat.

    People fit an Oil Catch Can (search it) to catch these fumes from the rocker cover, seperate the oil from the fumes and then vent the fumes either back into the boost system (into the engine) or out to atmosphere (cleaner way).
