Oil catch tank
« on: December 06, 2004, 09:42:54 AM »
Morning speed freaks,

I have purchased a nice universal oil catch tank, to dress up the engine bay and also to catch some oil. I have a single turbo set-up and i reckon it does blow a fair bit oil through the pipes.

Anyway as a mechanical novice, i was looking for advice on where to place it and where to make the connections, pictures would be helpful.

Cheers,
