Hi all,
Recently got a sickspeed oil catch can I'm trying to decide where to put it. I was just curious where others have out their catch cans?

The factory spot is perfect. Just replace the existing can with your new one and keep all the connections in the same spot.

I put my Oem oil separator on the firewall where the old abs canister was.

If you put the catch can where the ABS was, how did you run the oil drain line to it from the turbo side without it getting close to the turbo?

I used high temp Gates Racing hose and directed it as far away from the turbo as I could.

That was my first thought, but unfortunately the stock bracket on the air cannister makes it difficult to screw in and mounts tilted. I suppose I could make a new mounting bracket on the cannister

I made a plate to mount to the firewall where the abs canister was, and then mounted the oil separator to the plate. Got some high temp silicone hoses to run the lines to and from it and routed them from the valve cover along the firewall to it, and the other 2 down and away from the turbo and exhaust as much as possible.

My catch can is the ground.

Some pics of these relocations would be good. Interested to see how they have been mounted & how the lines have been routed.
