Besides being illegal, I see a few things that could go wrong:

-Oil/Sludge getting into random parts of the engine
-Dirty air getting into the engine
-Not sure if the system is pressurized which could cause some issues in the long run.

How much oil is everyone getting out of their catch can? I have the Token OCC installed on my vehicle. I just drained it for the first time after 4K miles. There was roughly 1.5-2 oz of oil in it. My vehicle has 80K miles.

Any idea when you'll have more cans in stock? I really like the stealth/OEM look of your kit. If not, could you tell me what size CC your kit uses?

I'd pay the premium for a plug and play kit. If anyone has one they'd like to unload, PM me.

So bought this ebay one that actually comes with filter and WOW!!! For the price its very impressive very compareable to a Mishimoto, one here are some pics of my set up... And since you can take the can apart I drilled an extra hole and used a rounded bracket to bolt in and then bolted that bracket to another one I mounted on the ECU housing and it looks great.... One other thing because of where I mounted my OCC I had to modify the eng cover to run the lines through as you can see in the pics but this can is well worth the $20 IMO im very surprised its only $20 from the craftmanship and how well its put together with the filter in the middle of the can it should be priced around $100
