Blown 3.2's: Oil Catch Can?

How are you guys venting your oil tank?

Have you plumbed it into an Oil Catch Can of some sort?

Some Catch Cans have a breather on top. Are these any good?

Where did you mount your Catch Can?

How many breather hoses are you venting into your catch can?

This looks OK, and has an oil level indicator too:

I used a Canton catch can. Initially I vented it into the engine compartment but I have since routed the vent under the car because the blow-by gasses were getting sucked into the heater and stinking up the interior.

update

After installing my catch can setup, and a few drives, it really has to be vented outside. Any engine fumes entering the cab are not needed. Philip

Thanks guys.

Are you only venting the one port from the oil tank neck to the catch can?

Any other engine case hoses need to be vented to the catch can, or is that the only one?

i think its mostly steam, because i am running a clear hose to the catch can/ vent and i can see tons of water vapor building up/ forming, but is does have a car motor like smell, not sure what i would say it smells like exactly, but it smells like something

also, no smoke out of the exhaust or anything, i can check the plugs, but i think theyre fine. basically just wondering, how much is normal?

thanks

i think this is a honda or something like that, but this video description says he has cracked rings, which worries me. my smoke/ steam amount is comparable to this, maybe a little less.

yep, it will do that, especially if you have worn rings. I like sjf911s solution, I'll go that way and try to get it under and to the back of the car.

ok, thanks. its actually not quite as bad as the car in that video, i think i might have overreacted a bit.
heres a video of it, but its just kind of like a steam (and not much of it), so the camera doesnt see it very well. it take a little while for it to warm up before it starts putting out the steam

MVI_4175.AVI - YouTube

im assuming that on an ideal engine there will be nothing visible coming out of this filter?
thanks
scott

also, "bad rings", im not planning a rebuild soon, should i consider one. i dont have any smoke out of the exhaust, and i havent really seen any other indicators

OK. please pardon my ignorance, but why is this can necessary, and should I add one to my 3.0 SC that I turbocharged?
Thanks

Ditto any pics of the smaller (before) intercooler? Mine looks very similar.

Awesome, thanks for the pics! I'm working on that exact setup with same small IC. How efficient was it in your opinion? Hoping to have mine installed next week once new silicone couplers arrive. Have already removed rear condenser in favor of the fender version. great minds think alike aparently! cheers!

It seemed to work pretty well but I never logged pre and post temps or pressures. The full bay does create more of a heat-soak issue on hot restarts.
