Re: oil catch can

Have you towed anything, mountain driving, really pushed the ED with the BMW CC?

No towing with the new separator but I never "baby" by jeep. Drove to Toronto at 70-75 mph all day long. Had turbo spooled up to 20psi several times and went through 2 regens on the trip. As I said before I would see a pending code almost immediately with the standard catch can without even pushing the engine. I have had no pending codes with this unit. Here's the oil out of it after 1000 miles...ImageUploadedByTapatalk1431048328.298964.jpg

That's great news. This is a much more elegant solution than cobbling together stuff that kinda works depending on how much steel mesh you have in the canister. Looks like it does a good job of filtering oil too.

The funny thing is the VM Motori 3.0L has a centrifugal oil separator, guess it just doesn't work "that" good

That's for sure! I'd hate to see the oil blow-by without the so called "on board separator"... It's a great engine. I'm just disappointed that they didn't install a separate oil separator like most turbo diesels have these days. It's unfortunate that they decided to build the engine only to get through the warranty period. I've heard of turbo inner cooler issues with these around 50k miles because the inner cooler filling up with engine blow-by... At least now we all have a solution that is easy to install, with no CEL's and works great.

Re: oil catch can

Finally got around to installing my catch can. I based my install on Peter.T's design in terms of the custom bracket. I didn't want to use any hose connectors so I replaced the billet cans barb connectors with ones that directly fit the different diameter hoses.

Re: oil catch can

Yeah the port holes are about the size as my previous install and it was too restrictive. Hope it works!

Looking at your picture it doesn't look like you have the extra sensor on the PCV valve (in front).

Are you in the U.S.?

Without the extra sensor guys have had success running more restrictive separators since the system isn't double checking the flow rate between two sensors.

Also looks like you don't have the particulate sensor on the blowy intake tube. At least from the angle of the pictures.

Let us know. Thanks for sharing!

Re: oil catch can

Update, no codes as of yet. Confirm not from the US, the extra sensor you guys have to deal with would explains your problems. I was thinking it was a software metric.

Thanks for confirming. Yes, not having the extra sensors is the reason for your success with no CEL's.

As for now (unless someone else finds another solution) the BMW N54 from Berger Motorsports is the only can that will work (without additional modifications) on a U.S.-emissions Ecodiesel.

Re: oil catch can

Ugg!! BMW catch can, 7/8 inch hoses nice and large for no restrictions and CEL already. I've spent like $500 on catch can related materials so far and no luck LOL.
