    Not completely happy with how much catch can currently is, just looks a bit untidy... Going to reposition/reroute it but just wanted some inspiration from you guys before I make any decisions, would preferably like to see different vent to air set ups.

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    had to be the two most overkill catch cans didn't it!? ha ha! . . Looking good though lads, Andrew that is in absolute monster!

    Not sure I'm looking for anything quite that extreme to be honest, would rather not have to relocate my battery anyway! . . Still, both have given me something to think about. Thanks! :thumbsup:

    Anyone else wanna show me theirs? (stop it!). . . And please don't be shy even if Andrew and tuffty have made you feel inadequate!

    I suppose I was literally asking for it! lol

    Matt, like your set up there... Is that a 90 degree off the cam cover onto the T-piece? Hard to see form here

    I did use a t-piece but i felt no need for it so i used the black metal pcv piping that was already there.

    I did have to modify the catch can slightly because it had no baffles inside

    Think you saw mine on another post but i used the original black 90 off of the oil cooler and ran a pipe to a t peice one straight to the cam cover and the other to the can
    The outlet of the can goes to the hockey puck but I'm thinking of blocking the hockey puck hole and sticking a vent filter on the can

    Here's mine...little bit different again. I've now got the pipe and will be running the outlet from the can down and to the rear of the car as I find that the little filter leaks a bit of oil, which the cheap can perhaps is to blame for, and the oil dripping on the ending eBay and components is something that isn't ideal.

    Sound's like the beginning of some sort of riddle/tongue twister... "what can a catch can catch if a catch can can't catch a can!?"

    Sorry, I'll stop being silly now... But as shan00ble says: oil vapour from the head. . . . And crack case

    Yes Josh mate, I did indeed see yours in another post... That's whats got me thinking mine needs a tidy up!

    I like what you've done but I'm wanting to vent to air. I have a similar design catch can as the inlet/outlet are so close together it's tricky to get a breather on without it ending up looking like Gmac's. Sorry, no offence dude but that's exactly the kind of thing I'm trying to get away from! 10/10 for ghetto modding tekkers tho :o.k:
