I've been looking at the MED catch can & rocker box kit, for potentially one or both of my Minis.
I'm currently running CCV on both, using timing cover, transfer cover fed into the inlet (using SC injection kit)
Now the engine is fairly high spec, 1312, forged omega pistons etc, and i've read up that these forged pistons use abit of oil.
I've been dailying her for the past few months, and noticed im going from max to min on the dipstick in about 250 miles.
Now I think i've got a slight leak from the timing cover, and temp sensor on the oil fitter is misting, but im just a little concerned its alot? I've noticed the oil cap has a slight bead of oil on it when checking, through the breather hole.
It is a road car, but both get driven hard. I do lots of high revs aswell, usually sitting above 4k for a good few miles each day, aswell as regular blasts to 6k+
Im under the impression ccv works best at low revs / idle? and maybe im not getting enough breathing when im on the move, so was considering a catchcan setup? Im conscious of the fumes from this though, which is a concern.
I've checked the breathers, their clear and not gummed up, compression is good across all 4, and done both that and a leakdown test before and recently, both being fine.
Am I just worrying about nothing with the 250 ish miles max to min?
My other engine is pretty similar, but then is driven hard too. It's not smoking, on wide open throttle, or on overun.
Any advice ccv or catchcan welcome, just wanting to see how others have found both setups on hot spec engines?
