PROVENT 200 OIL CATCH CAN

Q&A
I just found oil in my air intake at the point where the intake joins the turbo inlet. Obviously this is coming from the rocker cover breather and I'm getting a bit of blow-by. So I'll need to install a catch can but would like to hear from you guys that have installed one as to where the best location for the can is and what the best receptical is. I would also like to plumb it back to the air intake so that emission control is maintained

It was the Mann-Hummel Provent 200 got the most consistant good reviews. So that's what I fitted, and have been very happy with it. The Provent 200 is a purpose built crankcase ventilation filter, it is designed to plumb back to the air intake. It can also be set up to self drain the captured oil back into the sump. At the moment I just have a length of hose with a tap on the bottom for draining captured oil, but I'm going to set it up to self drain when I get time.


Where you fit it depends on what is already in your engine bay. Mine is fitted in the left rear corner. I know mine is a 3l and your asking about a 4.2, just means your plumbing will be different.

Crankcase vapours going through your intake wont really hurt anything (although it wil reduce the efficiency of your intercooler), and your turbo is lubricated internally. If your engine has EGR fitted and still working, the carbon particles in the recirculated exhaust gas can combine with the oil mist to form a sticky black muck that will coat the inside of the inlet manifold and intake ports reducing airflow.
