Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

I got the Provent 200 in. Geez, this thing is huge! About three times as large as I imagined it. Gonna be harder to find a place for it.

Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

If this is such a big concern, why don't manufacturers include it in their design?

1 more thing for the consumer to maintain and forget to empty till it fills completely full and dumps shots a full stream into the throttle body?

Emissions Emissions Emissions is all they care about.

Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

Zybane, did you mount the Provent 200 yet?

Also, open to anyone, does the Provent actually hold the oil like the Billlet Technology catch can? If not, where do you drain the oil to?

Is the Provent "better" because it has a paper filter element?

I will hopefully get it put on one of these weekends. I am going to run a rubber line to the bottom of the engine area, and "plug" it will a removable plastic plug. That will allow the oil to fill the drain line and bottom of the provent. Come oil change time, just pop the plug and you are good to go!

Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

I've read into these for my current/soontobeprevious WRX, but then found one from Grimmspeed that was just an air/oil separator that takes the idea of the catch can, but dumps the oil right back into the oil fill tube (it's a replacement cap that routes the PCV line to it) For reference: Air/Oil Separator - Turbo Subaru - GrimmSpeed

Is there anything like this out there for this motor? No more need to empty the can!

Unfortunately with the Grimmspeed design if you corner too fast you can have oil slosh up the fill neck and be sucked into the intake. (There are threads on it on NASIOC and IWSTI).

I myself mounted Moroso Dual Catch cans(STI, have to empty myself) however you can look into the universal Crawford Air/Oil Separator, it has lines to run coolant through it to prevent freezing and it drains back to the oil sump...it is pricey though

It was a universal one and I had to get my own hoses and fittings, also made up my own bracket, I've been having trouble with this catch can leaking so I'm looking at installing a provent, just need to work out where to fit it (dame there big)

Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

Thanks...Yoda42.... I've been thinking about installing one but I wasnt quite sure how it's to be installed. I wish they made one for the 3.0L diesel thats was just a bolt on with directions.
