Busy little night in the batcave doing some engine work to the GT. Let me ask you a question? Do you lay awake at night worrying about how much ganky black gunk your engine's crankcase breather system is spluttering on your precious, carefully engineered, state of the art, precision machined hybrid turbo's impeller wheel?
No didnt think so..lol. Well in my ocd world i do i am afraid.
I was sitting on the flight yesterday from visiting family amidst screaming rug rats, and i came up with a cunning plan. Which today i executed.
A while ago i bought a 19mm blanking plug for my GT's TIP. I also had one spare mini catch tank, piping and a K&N breather filter. So started to make a few sketches of how i would reroute the breather fumes and gunk out of my Turbo's way. Sometimes things don't work out how you think they will, but today i think they did.
I cleaned the TIP, blocked the inlet hole with my alu plug. Redirected the hose, adding more length, and also added a second catch tank o the system, which finally ended up connected to the new K&N breather filter discreetly and strategically placed down below above the wheel well shroud hopefully where the breather fumes can escape, without being caught in the down draught of my cars cabin airflow system.
To be honest it wasn't exactly rocket science, more a matter of using what i had in my car things box stash.
This solution will do for now. As the master plan is to use the newly acquired "Evap scavenger valve" that will be incorporated into the front part of my wizard stainless exhaust system when it is built. But for now i can rest easy knowing no more crap is getting blown onto my precious turbo or gunking up my FMIC and induction pipe work. Happy days.
