I put a Mishimoto can on about 2 months ago and poured a couple ounces of oil out of it 3 days ago. It seems to be well built and well engineered. That's the only one I've seen, so I can't compare to any other brands.

If you're stock, don't waste your money.

What is the best way to install this...I did a quick look after I ordered mine and it looks like a bitch to get to the lower connection. Any hints to make it easier?

It's a simple installation, but you're right about the lower end of the PCV line. I saw a youtube video of a guy who reached in from the top and did it, but I had to get the car up in the air and go in from underneath. My hand just wouldn't fit in there from the top. It's nothing complicated, just hard to reach.

Anything that catches oil from your intake valves on a direct injection is s plus, whether stock or not. As for brand, I went with UPR dual catch. It mounts on the nice open side of the engine bay and comes with high quality hoses.

Yes I'm sure it is. However ALL cars have a PCV system that recycles oily crankcase gases back into the engine for emissions purposes. The amount of oil you displayed unfortunately has no context. You say less than 2 months and you collected that small amount. Well how many miles or engine run hours was that? If it was just 100 miles worth of driving, then yeah that amount of oil may be worrisome. However if that's 1000 miles of driving it's not anywhere near excessive. While it's true that boosted applications usually create more crankcase vapors than a naturally aspirated motor, that small amount of oil is not hurting anything and has zero impact on performance.

At stock boost levels there's really no need for an aftermarket oil separator on these cars. You're wasting your money.

I bought and installed a JTL catch can from American Muscle. It's nothing special or exotic, but does work and helps keep the oil out. Cheap and easy way to help keep the engine running in tip-top shape. Be patient and don't get frustrated taking off the lower hose. It's a pain in the butt. Find someone with long skinny arms to help you.
