  6. JBR makes one for the Focus ST. It will work with the Fiesta ST also. You may have to fab. a bracket. Mine is mounted in the scalloped corner of the air box resonator/silencer (lower half, 10:00 looking down at the air box from the front of the car).

    I have mine mounted, just not hooked up yet.
    I just ordered the hoses I need so I will get it done next week.

  9. Sorry, I got a little carried away with the Aeroquip catalog. The can is out of frame to the lower right, under the airbox.

  11. Let us know how much you find in it. I only got about a tablespoon out of mine in 3K miles.

    D1HL - it looks like those hoses use the factory connections??? were did you get them? i would love to do the same thing, please talk us through what you used. M7 is that the guys that make the mini cooper parts?
    please tell us the parts you used. It would make it a lot easier if the hoses were plug and play.

    It is not important that you ONLY got out a tablespoon of oil in 3K miles.
    What IS important, is that you GOT a tablespoon of oil OUT.

    I never thought to do a "How To" on this project so I didn't take photos along the way.
    I used the M7 catch can because I bought it for a previous car and never used it.
    I chose to place it in the rear corner, right side, of the engine bay because it fit and provided the shortest hose distance.
    I ordered an additional OE PCV hose because I wanted it to look as close to OE as possible and it was only about $12.00.
    Cutting the original hose and adding pieces of the second one, I was able to route the hoses as shown above.
    The longer hose was coupled together with a 5/8" to 5/8" hose barb then covered with heat shrink tubing.
    The connections at the can are just the hose slipped over the nipple with a very short piece of silicone hose inside to make it tight.

    Yes, the M7 Catch Can was originally purchased for my Mini.

  14. Do you happen to have the p/n for the stock hose? I can't quite get my engine cover back on with the Aeroquip hose I have now. I have re-plumbed everything to fit under the cover but I am going to need some new stock hose ends.

    Hi Dave, I just bought the same M7 Oil Catch Can you install on your FiST. There isn't a whole lot of info. out there on installing a catch can on the FiST and I'm not the most mechanically incline. Would it be possible for you to post a few more pictures, detailing the install? Or at least post a few pictures that I can get a good idea which hoses go where an which one I should cap. Thanks! -Tim

    @D1JL - Dave, I just purchased the same M7 Oil Collection Can you installed on your FiST. I'm not the most mechanically incline and there really isn't a whole lot of info. out there on installing an oil catch can on the FiST. Would it be possible for you to post a few more pictures detailing the install?... Or at least enough that I can get a good idea about which hoses should go where and which hose needs to be cut and capped? Thanks! -Tim

    So all I've seen are the oil catch cans between the valve cover and the intake manifold. What about the pcv hose between the valve cover and the intake tube? Wouldn't it be good to protect the turbo from oil?Sludge build-up?

    Yes it will keep the turbo and FMIC cleaner in the long run..
