Also,  there is some debate about using catch cans vs. "cyclones" or other
oil  separators, so you might want to check for other alternatives.   There
are threads on S2forums and the 20V Kruemmer list, if not every other  20V
list.  I want zero chance of oil in my intake and I have a  dedicated track
car, so I made my choice.  It has worked fine so far  although we
underestimated how quickly it would fill and it overflowed,  dripping oil in
front of my tire on a wet track.  Besides being  environmentally unfriendly,
I couldn't understand why my brakes would lock  at even the slightest
pressure.  We have adjusted the service interval  schedule accordingly.
Nicer catch cans have a sight window or level  indicator.


 What makes your catch can fill up so quickly? I had a catch can on my  S4 
and after 6 months there were only a couple drops in it.
