Oil catch can install 2014 2.0t

Hi guys I’m new here I’m considering with everything I’ve been reading on catch cans to install one. I was just wondering what’s the best way of doing so I want to do it on the turbo side I know to run the breather tube to the catch can but do I run another tube from intake to the catch can too?

The sight tubes are worthless. I take mine out and plug the holes. They just get all dark and you can't see anything through the tubing. This one does have a drain plug. Most you need to take the bottom of the can off to drain. With a drain plug you can add a hose and extend it to a convenient location for easy draining at oil change time. I just have the hose tucked up in front of the tire behind the plastic.

Many want to pay big bucks but they all do the same thing. I use cheap ones form ebay.

Essentially you just take the smaller hose that goes to the intake piping and put it in the catch can and then put a hose on the intake where the hose was before and hook it up to the catch can tooo??? And is it really necessary to have one for now I just plan on a sri and axle back [/QUOTE]

Yes they, if using 2, just go inline of the existing hose. No they are not necessary.

Well if you want to maintain it the best then you need one.

On my cans that use 3/8" barbs...

The 3/8" fits the PCV valve but the Intake barb is 1/2". Metric really. A 3/8" hose should slip inside a 1/2" hose and then all that is needed is a hose clamp. The turbo side, IIRC, the valve cover barb is closer to 7/16".

Should I get a 7/16 hose to be safe or should I be all set?

If the catch can is properly baffled then it should be fine. I personally am not a fan of all the generic made ebay ones. As for installation there a few write ups on this very forum on how to install it. Nothing has changed in that aspect.

The two biggest factors with a catch can are Low and Cold. Low for gravity drain and cold for hot gaseous condensation.
