Default Oil Catch Can

A few triton owners I have spoken to have all recommended the fitment of a catch can setup to the DID engine. Basically to stop oil fowling the intercooler.

Although I have not had a good look as to where you could install one and the best way to set it up.

Looking on ebay and it appears they go inline. (eg) Hose in and house out, so no fumes are released and the oil is trapped into the canister. Unlike the one on my performance car, which vents to the atmosphere, via a filter on the top of the catch can. Which is not technically legal

Has anyone else with the DID engine gone down this path? Or care to offer an opinion. thanks

Plenty if not most members that fit oil catch cans here use the closed system ones.
The problem is not burning crankcase vapour but burning oil.

Make sure you get a decent one. The cheapies can increase crank case pressure which is bad.

What are you looking at? The Provent 200 is a great unit.

Cheers for the link.

Looks like to provent is the best option, rather than one of the catch cans with the steel wool.

I want to fit a oil catcher, who has done this as I would like to know
where the hoses connect out of and where to if possible.
And a few pics would be great assistance.
Please dont refer me to the Pajero forum as its a different motor

I spoke with my mechanic today and he thinks that using a catch
can will stop the oil from lubricating seals and bearings in the turbo.
As Im not knowlegable in this area perhaps some one with greater
info can advise.

Default change mechanic!

I am surprised that your mechanic thinks the Crankcase Ventilation inputs on the intake side of the turbo.
Turbo has it's own pressurised oil supply.
CV inputs after the turbo outlet and before the intercooler.

cheers, old Jack.

Sounds like the sort of thing the local Mitsubishi mechanic here would say before he engaged his brain.

Interesting theory...... Your mechanic obviously hasn't noticed the oil feed and return from the turbo.
