Hi there. I'm new on this forum, as I just bought a 2016 SH Pajero. I want to install a Provent 200, but I'm a little bit concerned about one thing: I saw some videos where people were complaining about crankcase pressure problems after installing this thing (not on Pajero). Is this something to be concerned? Did you have bad experiences? There are users here that had the Provent 200 installed for some time now, so I think you should have a clear opinion by now.

I'm already convinced that the filtration offered by the Provent is real and is good for the engine, it's just that I'm afraid not to have a bad influence on the air system, as this is something intrusive, not considered by the development team when the engine was designed. Thank you for your replies.

The pressure drop across a properly installed quality catch can would be minuscule. Should not be any issues at all.

Were they genuine Provent catch cans, or one of the cheap copies?

Were they installed with large bore hoses and elbows, or small hoses and restrictive elbows?

Were they properly maintained i.e. filters changed / cleaned on a regular basis?

A genuine Provent installed with properly sized hoses and fittings, then properly maintained, won't cause crankcase ventilation problems.

Sorry for not replying in a while. In the meantime I managed to find a Provent 200 and install it. I'm very happy with the final result. There is not much oil for now, but as the cold weather came, I can see some oil combined with water (I guess condensation) which I'm glad it's not going in the engine anymore.

An interesting fact is that even if MANN is an European company and the ProVent was designed in Germany, it's almost impossible to find it in Europe. I barely found one in UK. And I had to build my own installing kit, as there is none available here. I tried to order one from Australia but somehow it got lost on the way, so after several weeks, amazon returned my money.

Are there Isuzu trucks in Romania? They have a factory catch can that is very similar to the provent. Only difference is that the inlet/outlet are swapped
