Polished aluminum with anodized fittings and liquid level vial for checking can oil level. Can be modified for dual crankcase breather lines by swapping inlet to a "Y" or "T" fitting. Bottom-mounted drain plug and ventable to atmosphere or back into engine via vacuum line below TB butterflies. And $60... seems like a fair price.<ul><li><a href="http://www.pdm-racing.com/products/imag/pdmcan3-large.jpg">PDM catch can</a></li></ul>
I wonder how much it would flow as compared to ours? I wonder if it's too restrictive? I wonder if the Audi guys knew something we didn't? I wonder if we used that would our engines find alternate pathways to vent? I wonder if ALL the French really do hate us?
But no way of knowing what the internal diameters are but you're right... the question begs asking. Tho they do recommend this on a turbo application which even at .5 bar boost would push a HELLUVA lot more blow-by than we can. Still kinda pretty tho. Maybe I'll give em a call tomorrow, do a little fact-finding.
The light blue thing behind the WI pump and under the reservoir.
Let me know when you find the answer to that French thing.
all the same features of the other one. Double the bucks tho.<ul><li><a href="http://www.ipsracing.com/engine/accessories/greddy_oilcatch.html">Greddy Catch Can</a></li></ul>
"..that gives a racecar look."
I used one of these on the final drive in my SCCA B Sedan/GTII National Datsun 510 back in the early seventies. Had no idea they were still around. Even more money... maybe thats why they're still around.<ul><li><a href="http://www.ipsracing.com/engine/accessories/cusco_oilcatch.html">Cusco Catch Can</a></li></ul>
directly into the plenum and throttle body where the engine eats the oil up.
Basically, it keeps your engine internals cleaner and with fewer carbon deposits and allows only good ol' clean air into the engine with the drawback that most oil catch cans vent the gases minus a lot of the oil into the environment.
However, some vent the "cleaned" air back into the engine (obviously requires a third hose back into the intake system from the catch can).
a mental midget to become president. They hate that we threatened their economic interests in Iraq. They hate that Bush's version of diplomacy equals "it's my way or the highway--the U.S. will neither respect the interests of other nations nor even fake respect of their interests."
However, the French also hate Saddam and understand that only brute force or an assassination would have torn him from power and restored human rights. They would have preferred the simple assassination, but, given the necessity of brute force, they expected the most militarily powerful nation on the planet to demonstrate an equally powerful intellectual and diplomatic effort and feel disappointed that we could not negotiate ourselves out of a paper bag on the world stage.
For the French, it's not about Saddam, it's about respect between neighbors and business partners. Bush has burned bridges in his fanatical efforts to knock the chip off the family shoulder, benefit his financial supporters in the military/industrial complex, and defeat the success the Euro found in foreign oil markets which began switching to the new currency and weakening the dollar as "the" world oil market currency.
It sucks to live in a bold new world.
I know you did not want an answer to your rhetorical question, but I am tired and have an attitude tonight.
