Hi, After seeing how oily my AFM/induction pipes/butterfly etc get I think it will be a good idea to fit an oil catch tank and vent the nasty gas to atmosphere. So has anyone any pictures or words of wisdom or encouragement on fitting one to my GTSt?

Not looking for :gay: anodised coupings or highly polished pimp-fodder tank, just something sound to get the job done.

...Wonder if this Evian bottle will do... :)

Cheers folks.



Edited out some poor spelling :rolleyes:

I was thinking of the inner wing where the IC was... or maybe seeing if the old filter case could be butchered and fitted the other side to cover something up, at least it would not be so obvious

Fit it so that is has a 'vapour' pipe leading back to the inlet side of the turbo (the existing pipe). That will stop any nasty oil / petrol smells in the car. Gary P (GT-ART) I think still does a nice catch tank that replaces the washer bottle (has washer tank built into one half) not expensive either:)

Thanks Pidge,
nice to know there are folks out there who have been down the subtle route. Has anyone used headlight/ windscreen washer nossles to evapourate water off the IC though, just a thought

Paul

water injection would generate too much obvious pipework wouldnt it?

Ordered

The Cusco catch tank from takakaira.com a few days, keep you all updated on how it goes once it arrives!

On the DIY front, been building an Intercooler water spray system using bits from halfords, seems like an interesting project. Should finish it tomorrow. Bought myself several washer nozzles, about 20 feet of pipe, some wire, a washer pump motor and some assorted bits and bobs, and a 5 litre plastic petrol can and set to work. Switch wired into as blank in the dash then under the gearbox gaiter to the boot where the motor is screwed to the fuel can. Hoses run out thru the OSR wing drain over the diff and along the OS left bodykit screws to the intercooler but about 1 foot short at the moment. Finish it off tomorrow afternoon and will post some results after a good test run!

Anyone tried this with any results?

Think they tried

to deliver today, but was at work. Got the Parcelforce card thru the door. Either its the catch can or the Boost controller cos all the delivery guy wrote was that it was a package from japan.

If its the catch can it will be going in between now and sunday, shall keep you posted!

PS

Robopope...

Finished the intercooler water spray system a few days back..... Not noticed much difference on my GTS-T. Think there is a little gain in boost pressure, but not a lot. Spoke to a cleverer person than me who lurks in here who confirmed my supicion that it won't make a noticeable difference, esp on my puny RB20DET. Might be worth a go on a bigger donk though!
