Oops, fixed the link, thanks.

This is the catch can I have. Mishimoto made it for high flow diesel pickup engines. I haven't added any extra material to it. It's quite a bit larger than the other catch cans I've seen people use. If you're interested, I actually have another one that I couldn't get the bottom can portion to thread off. Mishimoto threads them on SUPER tight from the factory. I had to use a strap wrench and put the head of the can in my vise to get the can off of the second unit I got (that didn't work with the first unit). You can have the first one for cheap if you're interested.

Large Mishimoto Oil Catch Can

To FaRKle on your post of 17 Dec 18 at 1:43, I too have the large Mishimoto oil catch can for my 328d. How did you mount it? I had been looking at two options: on the passenger side, using the existing heat shield screws; or on the driver's side near the front fender. I am in search of 25 mm ID hose today. Any help you can send, I'd appreciate it. My catch can is identical to the pic you posted on 1 Jan 16 at 11:49. Thank you!

Here's a pic of my mount. I made a mount that clamps to the pinch weld right behind the headlight. It's quite secure, and the bottom of the catch can is touching/supported by the wheel well liner below.



I'd skip trying to find 25mm ID hose. That's difficult and expensive. I used some 1" to 5/8" (25mm to 16mm) straight silicone reducers to pair with the AN10 hose. I also tried looking for new fittings with smaller ID barbs, but Mishimoto used a thread on these that's not terribly popular for barbs...

Thank you. I will work it and see what I can do. Time to adjust and adapt.
