Anyone here even added a catch can to the 7P5 Treg? Looking into it but this baby has me on the hop. Fitted a prefilter/water separator and that was a challenge all of it's own. Now wanting to fit up and install a Provent 200.
Any pics, videos or advice appreciated - plumbing and location of Crankcase breather system would all be very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Vic

Why not? They have more crankcase pressure than equal sized gasoline engine.
You know all those leaks on older diesel's,
It's due to crankcase pressure a bit to high.
There is usually a BREATHER in diesels (ever see in old 12v and 7.3 diesels blowing puffs of smoke by the oil pan?) But pcv relies on engine vacuum, of which a diesel produces none
