yes thats me.... lol

anyway. in the engine bay theres a monster can with a pipe going into it.
is it an oil catch tank/can?


im not sure. if it is my pipe that catches the oil and puts it into the air filters broken. so im going to get some pipe and do this, as its illegal for a manufacture to vent it into the atomsphere buts its not illegal for you to modify it to do so? (confusing)

if its not an oil catch tank then what is it?

thanks (hope that makes sense)

its an intake, see that hole in the light, its just taking air into the engine.......
i think its called a ram intake or something lol
the stigster
no its not and intake, the intakes the massive pipe going to the middle. and yea its called ram air.

im on about the monster can in the red circle and the pipe thats next to the red line.

looks like its a catch tank for oil. unless its the big silver box above it cause that goes into a different bottle
