Thanks to Manscaped for sponsoring today's video. Get Whacking! 20% OFF + Free Shipping @Manscaped at
This week on Money Pit, we’re getting to the bottom of all those oil leaks from last week’s track event. We’re going to have to go through our PCV system, and we’ll also install a cool set of catch cans.
We have a new channel!
Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

      When did that nipple get onto the crankcase vent? I went back as far as the oil cooler episode and always saw the nipple already there...

    if you want to benefit of the full potential of the Venturi effect, why not route the outlet of the catch can to the exhaust directly ?

    Add some methanol injection in the car because you using a turbo to create dense air you need some sort of vapour fuel right. Use it and go to the track.

    If you just put a PCV valve on the intake manifold, the catch can will not see boost. The valve cover on that same can will still relieve pressure and the system will still function under vacuum similar to stock.

  87. Know Bull5hit

    Im gunna say you had way more of an issue with your boost pressurizing the crankcase than blow-by, with a turbo engine you shouldn’t route a PCV to the intake manifold or charge piping. That usually leads to non-stop issues

    the vave cover niple could also vent to atmosphere without being hooked to the intake tube, it should in no way being caped off. this niple sucks air at low rpm with the help of pcv valve and pushes fumes on high rpm when crank speeds are high and pcv cant do much.
