It's really not a 930...

But it is a turbo. Without a catch can, I had nothing but trouble with the exhaust side seals. The turbo is an old Rajay, with a pretty restrictive drain, vs, say, the old 3LDZ I have lying around. After several configrations, I basically solved the seal problem with this after-aftermarket catch can (photos are the prototype; I still use it, just with prettier AN lines now).

Now, the 930 has a pretty stout setup with the mechanical scavenge pump (mine is electric), and those K27's and the newer style turbos tend to drain fairly well. As long as you have a good pitch to the can out of the drain, you should be OK. BTW, I don't have a vent from the can...had one, but it would tend to get somewhat messy.
