Hello, I was wondering what the advantage of fitting an oil catch can are please and are they definitely worth the money?

Have a read of the threads, basically the hot oil is off tyhge crank case and then gets sent through the turbo, intercooler, then through the manifold and gets burnt in the cylinders.
So it raises intake temperature, helps to gunk up the manifold (especially in conjunction with the egr), and will slightly decreases efficiency.
