Paulass, a quick comment about the catch can and a friendly to Fabspeed, you, and the many others that think/thought that venting the crankcase and oil tank into the engine bay (heelllooooooo, there's a powerful, sucker fan in there!!!) is a good idea.

If you look on the right front of the engine bay, near the shock tower, there is a significant open space in the chassis - OEM a/c hoses run through there and there is also supposed to be a tar covered foam block there that serves as an air-stop. You can run a vent hose through there (from a catch can or straight from the oil tank - will send a bit more oil mist to the ground if you do that), and as it travels down, ends up right near the right side anti roll bar mount (which you can use as a point to secure the hose with zip ties). Make sure you make an appropriate cut on the tip of the hose so that it is angled away from the airflow under the car.

I've been running like this for about six months with no problems.


* That cylinder/head oil weep signature is fairly typical - nothing you can do about it anyway without removing the heads and cylinders - wouldn't be concerned about it.
