TB breather pipes and oil breather on turbo car?

hi just wondering how do i go about piping these up? on the back of the throttle body there are 2 little 4mm tube bits that suck air in when started and the oil breather blows air out.

how do i go about piping these up?

i have a little KN filter to go onto the oil breather but what do i do with the other 2 little sucker bits on the TB?

cheers

gaz

Oil breather filters are now an MOT failure

Re: TB breather pipes and oil breather on turbo car?

if it still falls within the required emissions then they wont fail you for it. babzs car went through the MOT with it and although they told her that it should be ducted bback into the system, they wont fail it because it still meets the required emissions level.

Re: TB breather pipes and oil breather on turbo car?

On the turbo cars the two small vacuum pipes are not needed, you simply connect them to each other witha bit of silicone vacuum pipe.

As for breather system, the cam cover breather should be linked round to the pipe which the air filter is connected to. You can put an oil catch tank in place if you wish in this somewhere, I and Emma both have catch tanks of slightly different design, but in roughly the same place. Mine is where battery used to be making it very easy to fit, Emma's is a square one which actually fits between the battery and strut brace bar, tho I can't find any pics of this. I wouldn't runa car with it venting to air as it smells and can leave oil residue on anything below it as remember turbo cars will have more crank case pressure than a N/A car.

Found my pic of the oil catch tank, quite a bit different to Aaron's. It sits in there quite nicely as i don't plan on moving the battery at this point in time.

Since those pics were taken at the trial fit stage, the tank now sits square in the corner and not against the throttle body/accelerator cable before anyone says its fouling against stuff
