Look at Summit or Jegs. They have several including one that fits the hose coming off the oil tank filler (that went to the air filter).

I can post a pix tomorrow.

I've made a few now. this one here is for my GLH turbo dodge. The second, not pictured yet is for the Porsche, after I removed the factory airbox. Instead of just putting filters on the end of the oil vent pipes I'm putting a small catch can on with a filter on the top. I may also change it from a filter to a fitting to attach
to the top of the air filter..pics soon

I've done quite a few of these, Peterson Fluids Systems makes nice cans. Proper crank ventilation commonly overlooked. In kit form, Jim Patrick of Patrick MS has a good deal going and specific to Porsche.

Serviceable with internal baffles, drain plugs and lightweight aluminum etc...

Just made this the other day..It does not replace the one by the oil tank but is
used for 2 hoses that normally hook up to the factory airbox. Some people just put little filters on them but I figured I'd make something small but neat

Try searching for Moroso products at Summut and Jegs. It's not called a catch. can but something else. Overflow tank maybe?

1" hose connection

I have been looking for a tank with a 1" ID hose connection. I would like to not reduce the vent size from the oil tank. What is the ID of a #12 an fitting. Philip

-12 is just under 1" as I measured mine, but it fits perfectly. No need to squeeze down the hose.

AN fitting size

Going to a chart on the web, I see a 12 AN fitting has a inside dia of only 11/16. The oil tank breather hose on my car measures 1" inside dia. This is more than a 25% reduction in ID. I would like to find a can with at least a 1" connection. With the new breather assembly/turbo drip tank that am installing, the vent from the drip tank will not be hooked up further more eliminating yet another way for the oiling system to breath. Any input on this guys? Philip

I held a tape measure to mine. The outside of the threads are ~15/16. The ID is ~12/16.

I can take a picture tomorrow.

Yes, my mechanic also agrees with the 1" theory... without it, could cause pressure to build in crank case...
