Postby Shockraiser » Wed Nov 10, 2010 3:33 pm

Hey Guys,

I had to recently Take out the Throttle Body to give it a Good Clean as it was Rotten with Oil and Dirt :oops:

Anyone have any Suggestions on what type of Oil Catch Can or Tank I Could use ?? Where and Price Also ??
Im looking for a Nice Tidy one that Looks Well 8)

Just so long as it fits in a good location it should be fine...a can is a can at the end of the day! Some of the really expensive ones have a mesh inside to catch bits but that's about it!!

Ok Guys just to update, I finally got myself a Cusco Oil Catch Can a while back & came around to fitting it today....

I have to say it was alot harder to find an appropriate place to fit it than I thought :oops: I eventually fitted it to the front area of the engine bay directly behind the right hand side Cooling Fan closest to the ECU Box.

I mounted it from one of the exsisting bolts on the engine itself near the pulleys using the provided mounting bracket, the Can is out far enought to Just Clear the rotating belts & Directly under the Top Radiator hose leaving enough room between the two.

Hopefully it should work out good there but as long as it doesnt move its perfect....
Ill add a few pics to show you guys soon :D

Ya I was thinking of putting mine there alright but I changed my mind because I thought the intense heat would'nt be great for the can as it would be just above the exhaust manifold :roll:
