    Default Prevent catch can on hdi?

    Has anybody installed a catch can on their HDI?
    Been thinking about getting a provent catch can for my hilux for a while. Now thinking about it being a good idea for my 407 HDI as well. A couple of months ago I had the inlet manifold off a 308 hdi and realized that the build up of sludge in the inlet tract isn't something that only happens on 4 wheel drives.

    Have a look at some videos by Berrima Diesel. Cant go past their info. I am stunned on what my can catches with a petrol engine. I just took the intake off and the inside is spotless with no oily residue.

    Does it help with keeping the EGR cooler cleaner also?.

    The EGR cooler/heat exchanger treats exhaust, while oil catch cans treat intake air, so no,

    The later 2.0 L diesels are fitted with large oil separators (on the front, low down) with a drain into the oil filler pipe and an air vent into the intake system over the transmission end.

    Thanks seasink
    The ancillaries are killing the diesel for me, as far as long term, bottom line economy is concerned........and the clock is ticking also.
