Oil Catch Can

Several folks have determined that oil in the intake tract of the 1.8T is from the poor design of the PCV system. Some have attributed MAF problems to this oil leakage. Oil in the intercoolers is also a clue. Upon taking the sytem apart, there was indeed oil in the venting system. I installed an Air compressor filter as a catch can. All output from the valve cover travels through this catch tank before being routed to the intake or PVC system, Total cost $35. All parts available at Home Depot (natch!)
