Nope, Viper, bought directly from them and sent down to CT, then had it Powercoked inside and out.  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/smile

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

Then I think that the same ppl that make WC branches for the 20v make the same for viper. My branch looks exactly the same as yours and the welded nameplate is on the same spot as mine.  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wassat

If you bought it from Wildcat in Diep River, then no it's not the same, my buddy bought one from Wildcat, the runners are different they seem to be more oval than round. But they design is similar.

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

@ice 20v
Do you get a noticeable gain from fitting a branch to a 20v ? When I had a 16v, fitting a branch made a difference, but Ive been told by many to keep my standard 20v branch on my 20v coz it makes the best power..is this true or false ?

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

Guys, previously I had configured the OCT which was connected from the PCV > OCT > Throttle body without any breather. Then the valve cover breather port (near the distributor) had a breather filter connected to it. I had this setup for like 3 months and it did manage to collect some engine oil.
Then I modified my OCT to have an additional breather and changed my setup to PCV & valve cover port > OCT > breather
I dont have any picture of this setup but I will try to post em up. Note that using this setup will release toxic gases out to the atmosphere and if your firewall is not sealed properly, you could smell the gases in the cabin. However, using a longer hose facing below the gearbox and attaching the breather to it will minimize the gases from getting into the cabin.

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

Here's a sample of the one we made just wanted to know if anyone is interested.

http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h80/twincam-wp/oilcatchtank.jpg

This one has no return to the intake (Guys running open throttles) Breather filter goes on top

These a drain plug at the bottom to drain the oil (this needs to be done with every oil change)

Also making up the bracket to mount the tank will post a pic when fitted

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

just a question on this ...
is it advisable to dispose of the oil that collects in the catch tank or let it drain back to the block???
should only be oil vapor which drains back ... correct?
so in essence your 4AGE SHOULD NOT be USING oil if you drain it back to the block from the catch tank???

Re: DIY Oil Catch Can

so you recon I must rather throw it away???
never looked @ what it looked like to be honest because my assumption was that it was just oil vapor and condenses back into oil and drains back into the block ...
car never needed to be topped up with oil again since I had the catch tank ...
