    Catch tanks are good, they stop oil vapour going in the engine and causing carbon deposits which good for the engine, cleaner spark, lower emissions

    Personally think for a £40 tank that's good

    every car is different some pass more vapour and oil back into the intake than others which is getting pushed back into the inlet, simple mod but its keeping your intake cleaner dont vent it back on to the intake either stick a filter on the tank or run a pipe down towards the floor

    The standard airbox had a drain at the bottom to let out any oil vapour / water that collected in the airbox. The catch can is there to collect the oil vapour in the air and stop / reduce the amount going back through the intake and your turbo
