Re: Oil Catch Can (JimLill)

I was just thinking about this, as I ordered an FMIC and a DP. I figured if I'm going to be taking apart that much to swap those parts out, I might as well get one of these and install it, along with the R Kelly intake set I've been sitting on hehe!! Yep, I did search, but I couldn't find anything. I do not have the 1337 searching skills that our resident expert has. So, I await your results Magoon <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Steve<p>EDIT: Just realized I never actually asked a question or anything. Any write-ups that anyone knows about WRT oil catch cans and the R? Found a bunch for S40/V50 crowd, nada for the R. Probably ain't too different, but just in case someone has already done one and made a write-up it would be nice to have. TIA!<BR><BR>

Re: (chinaonnitrous1)

Neither do I and I am very interested in installing one DIY. Just need to figure out proper connection points, confirm fitting sizes, and confirming that these connection points are reachable as DIY.

The one listed in the ebay post, it doesn't mention if it has baffles or not. It doesn't seem to make sense to me to install a can with nothing for the oil in the air to impinge on and to 'fall out' of the stream. Or maybe I'm missing something<p>Also, the last pages of that thread had some other posts/offers for other catch cans.

It looks like <A HREF="http://www.perrinperformance.com/shared/PERRIN/documents/instructions/universal/asmeng600.pdf" TARGET="_blank">this Perrin one</A> might be a good choice. Inside there is a hose running down to the bottom so you could stuff it with something to act as a baffle, and it has gotten good reviews, it's just made out of hose, instead of metal. But i like the idea of the inside hose.. that's not a bad idea at all and might work well for any other can.<br>

Re: (JimLill)

Part of that gaggle of hoses seems to include some kind of "water heated" thing per VADIS.<p>Perhaps one of your Volvo Techs could comment

clamp#12 connects to the thermostat and the coolant routes to banjo bolt#11. It supposed to keep that pcv hose/tube from clogging with ice.

Ive got on on my R. Its a bitch to run the lines. Idk y but I haven't had to empty is yet and It was installed last May. I haven't seen any positives or negatives from the install yet. For anyone else that has one installed, how often to you empty it?

not the same car but very helpful<br><A HREF="http://www.honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=1970101&highlight=vented+valve+cover+thread" TARGET="_blank">http://www.honda-tech.com/show...hread</A><br> vent the valve cover(as long as there is a baffle on the inside) some dont care though (more oil in the can)<br>if you run it off the block...you need a valve to slow it down.(pvc box) if you run a hose from the block to an external can..youl get oil pumped out like crazy just like a turbo oil feed line. <br>so. all you have to do is vent the valve cover<br>1 or 2. if your going to create massive power like tony palo 1600hp integra youl need as many as you can get.
