Hi Gary,

Looks nice, they look to be about a 1/2 quart bottle with a breather on top of it? I need to buy or make an oil catch for the TT in Detroit and I'm trying to decide whether to buy a nice one or go the cheap route and make one out of a plastic bottle. My mind is telling me I need something shinny and my pocket book is telling me a plastic bottle.

I was just curious if their was a min. size catch tank that they were looking for.

Hey Msiert.
Here in Australia,for track use. 2 litre minimum capacity catch tank for under 2 litre engines and minimum 3 litre capacity catch tank for over 2 litre engines.
Yeah,i know you might loose a bit of power by the engine burning the fumes,but would rather that than to smell the fumes or drop oil on the road.
On race cars on the track,we just vent the fumes into a bottle with holes in the top.You cant smell them at speed.
By the way Msiert,great car,and great video as well.

Good thread here and just in time for me. I have the long dangling hose that spews oil all over the place, but keeps the car semi rust free What are opinions about the breather filter over a catch tank? I am going to be attempting a 1500 plus mile trip north in a few months and would like to loose as little oil as possible on the trip. I like the breather idea since it would be very easy to install, but the catch tank seems just a simple. What are the goods and bads about either option.

Hi Robert just saw your post,

I found a catch tank and am waiting on a bracket to install it. I will be installing it on the driver's side (left side) right next to the MDS controller and coils. It has an internal baffle to keep the fluid from being blowing out the filter but I was wondering if iit will still get everything slimmed around it?

I found that a 1/4" OD hose fits nicely in the peacock so draining it should be some what easy.

Here some pic's of it.

In Australia minimum size catch tank for competition for 2 litre engine is 2 litres.
In practice it only gets a few millimeters of oil after several events
