Brother, I hope you don't feel we Hijacked your thread I think is some good info for all of us


I had my drain into the left cam cover, the main problem was that the heat was killing the hosein addition to oil leaks and it was a nightmare to connect and disconnect, but NEVER had any problems, recently I changed the turbo and decided to change the drain system, now is from the turbo to the case ( former drain plug)

First problem

* with 9 qtrs of oil the car was smoking like crazy

* with 7 qtrs of oil it seems OK but I don't want to run that low on oil

* with 7 qtrs of oil if parked at my driveway for a few hours it will smOKe again

In a nutshell I can't stop the thing from smoking and I don't like it one bit, thats why I'm looking at this catch can which I feel will allow me to put more oil and will avoid the smoke ?
