Re: Catch Can on VM Motori Diesel?

At which point do you want a clean turbo, inter-cooler, and inlet manifold?

Re: oil catch can

Well I fitted a simple, cheap catch can, modified by stuffing it full of stainless mesh (scourers actually- it was just an empty can). It is all done with large radius bends and no restrictive small...

Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

Zybane, just wondering about the latest on your catch can as I'm thinking about fitting one too.
Did you solve your error message problem?
Is it catching much oil?

Thanks in advance.
