Question Oil Catch Can on an 156 JTS


Has anyone tried to install a oil catch can on their 156 JTS?

Here is a link about what it actually is:

If you are getting a lot of oil out of the crankcase, it's down to engine wear ... and did you know you had TWO crankcase vents?

I have one on my ts. It genuinely makes a difference.
The skanky yik that I empty out of it monthly is disturbing.
I feed the deskanked air back into my inlet pipe on the air box too. Less manky smells.

I been searching for a good setup, would like to do the same on my gt jts.
But I haven't found one yet.. And it's pretty tight between case vent and inlet tube. Let us know if You do anything, I would love to see some good solution on how to make one nice and tidy
And are we to catch both pipes? I been thinking of just catch from main pipe, and let the valve one operate as normal. What You think?
