If it's setup AT ALL like a DSM, look for a hose coming from the cylinder head into the intake pipe before the turbo. Like some kind of breather hose for the valve cover . On our cars we have one and what happens is that...

The engine will throw a little oil, it gets into that breather hose, then eventually runds down into the intake and gets forced through the turbo and out through the intercooler etc.

A simple fix is to buy a 5 dollar fuel filter and cut that hose in 1/2, place the fuel filter in between it, then the oil will run into the fuel filter and sit there instead of cycling through the turbo and intercooler etc.

Look here for a diagram for what I'm talking about.

If you got the skrilla, you can buy a 100 dollar greddy catchcan... I just used the fuel filter ;)

Just make sure the line you're cutting is some sort of breather line man! :shock:

That little mod will keep alotta oil from coating the inside of your intercooler, and also out of your throttle body, etc etc. VERY worth it IMO. I don't know why there isn't something similar installed from the factory as it would be so cheap to put in there anyway?

After a month or so you'll notice it gettin' a lil' oil in there too.

My guess is that it'll look markedly similar to the link I posted for the pics of the install on the DSM :oops:
Cuz it is based on it...and thanks to you! :wink:

It is inline. There are arrows on the filter for the flow. Depending on which fuel filter you use, the angle maybe different but it all inline with the oem setup.

If ones points where I could improve things, thanks, and I will take serious note of it. :wink:

uh. it is inline youre right. i'll qualify. your setup sits nicely in the engine bay. i think i'll see if i can try a filter like the one surgeon used (different i/o placement). heat may be an issue w that tho. i'll take a look in the morn.

The filter I saw had an inlet on the bottom and outlet at the top so it is clear that it's inline. I was gonna go for that but I did not want the oil to be also "inline" or along the path of the flow. But I can't prove that it is better or worse.

I use a similar filter, the one in the diagram kinda lays "on it's side" and I wanted the oil to actually fall into the can and be trapped etc. So I chose a filter that was slightly different. Same thing though, Silver's filter is just as good and I dig how it sits off to the side rather then right in the middle of the line.

Here's the one I'm using... The old one I had was the same, but totally transparent.

That's the one I fost picked. Then couple of transparent ones too. Regardless, I wanted something that would sit the oil in the bottom away from the in/out paths.
