How are you overcoming the oil surge filling the catch tank ?

Not sure yet still work in progress....defo replacing all lines to tank and venting to atmosphere.....still not sure where the oil mist on ns subframe is coming from ....almost like sump seal blow. Didnt have an issue after level settle at a 1/3 on dipstick.

I'm going bigger on the catch tank. Current 0.5 litre, so can just fit a 1 litre tank in somewhere. Didn't notice at Combe, but mine filled the tank up to 3/4. I've had this tank since I bought the car and with previous engine and this engine it never had any oil in the catch tank.
The vent pipe comes straight off the oil filler cap, so pushing this engine higher up the rev range, clearly pushes oil out of the engine.

Its a strange occurence and my theory that mine was being assisted up by vacuum as my catchtank is plumbed to front turbo...seems to be discredited by the fact yours vents to atmosphere....
It seems to be a 1 shot fill as opposed to oil misty slowly filling up tank almost like a slosh of oil on right hander blow up....oil filler tube....get yer self a penny washer for coombe lol.

well my master cylinder stopper arrived....i thought it was a cusco item from tegiwa....infact a poor made chinesse dog turd from Tegiwa....it now fits and should do the job but if you find em on ebay be prepared to retap threads, supply your own washers and bend the brackets to fit....else itll look like this.... :D

tightening up the bolts just pulls it further out of align.
