    ok, i got to compare my 04 to an 02/03, and i have a sensor or something at the end of there C and D are. so i can only have A and B in my oil catch can. i am just informing everyone. but ive had my catch can in my car for about 500 miles and the little white filter is full of black and brown crap.

    I TOTALLY RECOMEND doing this oil catch can. so far the return vac line to the turbo inlet is clean. it has a little residue, but thats to be expected. i would say 98% of all the crap is in the filter and the catch can. but i would leave the white filter in the can, it acts very well, and i would install opposite to the arrow on the line, because that way the oil is pushed through the filter and not pulled through.

    is this safe?

    when i bought my compressor thing it says
    "warning EXPLOSION Avoid synthetic oils, chemicals, solvents, paints, which may cause bowl failure.
    If damaged replace bowl immediately." so is it safe? cause i'm using synthetic oil, is anyone else using synthetic oil? no problems? plz tell me ur experiences with it, how many miles using oil catch can?

    about 2500 miles now, and no problems

    i mounted mine near the passenger strut tower, and the oil/ other crap was cool enough not to damage the can, i don't have anyproblems.

    question, when adding the catch tank, should i put in a bit more oil or is that not needed? will the catch tank work with full syn oil?
