    Provent in T5.

    Very easy to install in T5 no elbows needed just use silicon hose which is more flexible than rubber hose.
    The bracket is fixed using existing threaded hole that also holds the added Anderson plug for connecting CTEK battery charger to charge the battery since I do many short trips during the day.

    So you have a tube running from the bottom of the provent that has a stopper in it? I am reading the items list but unable to see the 12.5mm tube in the pics but see you mentioned it. Are you draining the oil through this pipe, and is it effective?

    Clean install again it must be said.

    Yes, just 12.5mm clear vinyl tubing forming the loop and long enough to hold a small amount of oil. The other end of tubing is just bend and tied with the plastic

    tie. I check the tube weekly; drain it probably every 3 months. So far I’ve done 65,000km. Top up between 7,500km oil changes is around 1/2Lof oil; I top up

    only when the oil level gets bellow min. mark on the dipstick.

    I believe that changing the engine oil more frequently has positive effect on the amount of the blow-by gas since the clean oil will give a better piston seal

    hence the less of the blow-by gas.

    I got mine from HSY Imports in Adelaide and they are supplied by Man Hummel in Sydney. I think it is cheaper to go directly.

    Yep, I have to go and see that filter before committing myself for this job. I wonna see if it can be mounted somewhere in the front near EGR valve... They are in Blacktown, might go there this Saturday morning.
