    Default 207 GTI pcv and catch can?

    Recently picked up a 2007 Peugeot 207 gti with 100,000km on it and full service history. It's totally stock but I'm about to fit an MTC intake onto it.
    I don't have any plans to further modify or to remap stage 1 or stage 2. I will Just leave it at the intake kit.

    My question is do I need to worry about PCV delete and fitting a catch can? I've tried reading so much about it but I do not understand. Also is it both pcv needs a catch can? Or just the back one and the front one still feeds into the intake?

    Total 0/30 first oil or if you are giving it a hard time you can go a 10/60 high end castrol but only if you track it also using Subaru upper cylinder cleaner BEFORE oil changes helps

    Its just a street car. Never tracked just driven normally sometimes give it a thrash.
    Do you mean any 0w30 fully synthetic oil? I've also seen 5w30 fully synthetic is good

    No 0/30 ineo first total branded we donít have carbon issues with our cars we service but plenty others around the area do people will tell you itís ok to use xy and z but Iíve worked on these since they came out itís worth the little bit extra

    It's easy to get in Vic. Find a Total distributor and get a carton (3x5L)

    It's a very low ash fully synthetic oil, and it's excessive ash that fouls ports and valves.
