    HPF oil catch can

    Seems like something some of our S54 guys might be interested in:

    There is very little room in the E46 M3 engine compartment to fit an oil catch can and we've dialed in the perfect spot whether you have a supercharger, turbocharger or are normally aspirated. The HorsepowerFreaks oil catch tank "kit" is a great way to keep oil blow-by from lowering the octane rating of your fuel. The crank case pressure on boosted and even non-boosted motors will often exceed ambient air pressure outside the engine. This causes the oil vapors to leave the engine and enter the combustion chamber. These oil vapors can lower octane ratings by as much as 2 points. The plug-n-play oil catch tank by HorsepowerFreaks uses extremely large and expensive 12AN Earls fittings along with Earls Pro-Lite 350 High temp oil resitant hoses to allow this pressure to quickly and easily flow out of the engine without restriction. The oil vapor hits the densely packed coil area inside the catch tank where the oil is separated from the air allowing the air to be burned safely by the engine and allowing the oil to accumulate so that it can be easily re-used. This oil catch tank is located in a safe place away from heat using the mounting bracket provided. The main oil catch tank simply twists off by hand just like an oil filter and allows you to safely pour the oil back into the engine.

    Here's a link to the kit on our site... http://www.horsepowerfreaks.com/part...anks/E46/16619

    HPF Oil Catch Tank "Bolt-On Kit" $495

    yea sorry to take this off HPF's and this is the s54 section, true. i just click unread posts Click here to enlarge u can make my pics clickables so it doesnt distract.

    if i were to make a thread with all my mods and pics it would be huge, i guess kind of like the build threads here but toned down to a 335 Click here to enlarge i guess i could make a build thread when i get my chra's, instead of just a turbo upgrade thread? would you guys really enjoy reading an epic post like that? instead of a sole review of the upgrade and figures/numbers hopefully.

    Man you can make separate threads for every part on your car if you want, I won't mind and neither will anyone else.

    So now get that damn oil catch can thread up so I don't have to move your post and do it myself! Click here to enlarge
