    Catch tank - my new toy to install

    This came first thing in the post this morning, just waiting on my fuel hose to come to fit it and proper jubilee clips.

    is it a tank that catches the oil/vapours and stops them entering the intake manifold. this helps keep the intake manifold cleaner and a cleaner combustion.

    looks like a tidy job mate, what have you done just extended the pipe fron the rocker cover and the return still going to the dipstick tube? what did you do with the ccv? just plug the hole?
