    Default Alloy oil catch tank

    Hi guys, i have seen a lot of alloy catch tanks advertised on ebay for fairly cheap but what i want to know is:
    1. Where does it go? and
    2. Is there any performance gain from it?

    Thanks

    They are designed to be fitted in the engine bay for collecting oil from the mist/vapour that is emitted from the crankcase during ventilation.There is no power gain as,on a 150,the oil is recirculated back into the inlet manifold as a vapour,and,together with soot from the EGR valve,combine to form a crud/gunge,which clogs everything up and shortens the life of the engine/associated parts.
    It's designed to fit inline and intercept this vapour, collect the oil from it,and allow fresh air to mix with the EGR gas instead.Hope this answeres your question.FELIXX.

    Yip it is nevedr going to be as effective as a dedicated system like a Racor CCV400 or Mann Hummel but it is a good assist to the dreadful existing cyclone system.

    The oil mist is recirculated back into the intake pre-turbo, so there is scope for reduced turbo wear and in theory some performance gain but nothing you are gonna feel.
