Can you post a pic up of how you've connected it?

Whenever i've seen a catch tank steaming its been head gasket, but let's not jump to conclusions yet.

I plumbed it in as you said, block off s shape pipe to intake manafold, block off pipe that goes to air in take, leave cams connected an take a pipe to the catch tank from the right hand side cam an put a filter on the other outlet of the tank!

The steam or smoke (steam i think!) is coming from the filter on the tank, i think pissing out is abit strong, its coming out though, more than i expected? Il try an post a pic tommorow night as im away at the mo!

Yeah still steaming, but with your idea it would be, as its hot air being released into cold air?!

You will get some steam, especially if there's some vapour in the tank which will evapourate as the tank gets warm.

Sounds like its fine.
