I don't know if anyone else has tried this but how much air turbulence do you get coming out of the oil filler car when you open it while the engine is still running. I never did this when the engine was new so don't really know how much air should be coming out of it. I'm just wondering if I'm getting some blowby.

Sweet I thought it was just me. typically I was just being paranoid.

Where did you get your catch can from? Did you plumb a line back into the oil pan for a return line? I use to use the old oil bottle trick in my Rabbit but that somehow doesn't seem appropriate somehow for a new Golf.

Gosh, imagine that! Maybe you're hearing the camshafts actuating your valvetrain, considering the fact that they're right there?

i got it @ a local off road parts store, its made by a company called "JAZ"
it has a valve on the bottom of it and i just drain it every few months as it fills slowly. there are nicer shiny ones made by greddy & moroso, but seeing as thier legality in CA is questionable, i went W/ this one for its low profile
