I'm just wondering if it's worth fitting an oil catch tank to the engine breather on a standard tune engine. It looks like the breather is just a connection between the top of the cam cover and the inlet just before the turbo so any oil mist and fumes will contaminate the turbo, inter/charge cooler etc.
If anyone has fitted one does it take out a significant amount of oil and make a noticable difference to the induction system and what type/make is recommened.

If you take a look inside the cam cover you'll find it has a fair bit of oil separation built in.

If at first you don't suck seed, try drier grain.
