GReddy Oil Catch Tank catches the oil and moisture in the blow-by gas that causes carbon and sludge build-up in the intake system and the engine. It keeps the engine clean even under hard driving conditions. It is also an excellent engine dress up item, gives it the race car look with the polished aluminum tank.

If this is how you really 'talk', you should write ads. :nice:

why do people use them and what do they do. I know they catch oil but things work fine without them don't they.
If things are pretty close to stock, things work really well.

Higher rpm/better breathing motors can challenge the stock pcv system.

so how do they hook up
You put it in series in the line after the PCV valve. It's stupid simple.

No, not callin anyone stupid at all. The install is stupid simple (meant as encouragement to anyone who wants to install a separator, Jaz can, etc). You're right on about the routing.

The quick version (last one I did was on my '94 so YMMV, but you know the 5N95's anyhow). Get some 3/8" fuel line (I used hydraulic line, which was a pain since it is so stiff. I was concerned with fuel line crimping as it goes around my STB). Grab a separator of your choice. Grab fittings (my separator had 1/4" NPT threads, so I used a fitting with 1/4" threads and the other end had a 3/8" barb. I used fittings that turn down 90* for packaging high on the SN95 firewall). Remove the OEM hose from the PCV valve. Run new line from the PCV valve to the inlet of the separator. Run a new line from the separator outlet to where the OEM PCV hose used to connect (A tee fitting behind the plenum, in my case). Mount the separator (there are two bosses in the top of the unit I used, so I tapped one and made a bracket to hold the separator and mount it to an existing firewall fastener).

Like I said, I removed the element in mine, as after about a teaspoon of oil was caught, the element started to clog.
That's about it.
