    Default Need Help Fitting Oil Catch Tank!!

    Got my oil catch tank today from ebay, with that hose that they have bend over 5 times and kinked it (I will remove them with hot water).

    I just don't know where to connect them :S

    Do I fit to the big fat pipe going to the throttle body and one to another pipe?

    I'm a bit clueless at the moement and would appreciate some help!

    Thanks guys!

    Plenty of pictures on here mate, but the pipe that goes over the top of the engine down the front of it is the one you need to intercept and fit the catch tank to, as this is the outlet from the oil separator and the inlet back into the air inlet line...

    I did look at the pictures but I couldn't make head or tail of it! Do I Tee into it, or connect it straight in.

    Or do I just basically replace that pipe with the oil catch tank and the 2 hoses?

    Sorry for sounding like a dumbass!

    Pipe goes in one connection, comes out the other and carries on to the inlet at the front of the engine. You're making the hot gases go through the oil catch tank then carry on where they were going, hopefully with less oil inside them...
