    After 30hour use,- in this wintertime, I pulled my IC and hoses for cleaning purposes
    I have only a very very littel bit oil-"creme" inside - but I think about...

    The IC is aluminium metal.
    I remember my motobike manual from BMW - there is often written a
    warning, to keep the engine oil for more than one year inside the
    aluminium engineblock. Specially the old oil deposits are very aggressive
    to aluminium metal.
    Can be this old oil deposits harm the aluminium from the IC?

    I have my catch can from Jerry since 2 year on the shelf - I think I will install it now.

    Update - done >

    Do you guys think you need a catch can? I just put a crank breather right on top of the outlet, like you would on a car a valve cover. Please respond with "I Think" if you do not know!

    good call, was noticing "rogue oil" in the bildge. Must be it cuz you cant see it under the air plenum. I cant stomach the $150 ish for a filter and reservoir or ruining my new IC. there must be a cheaper solution.

    Dont want to sound rude because it's not the intent. If you can afford water toys, you can afford $150 and not blink a eye to it. $150 is a drop in the bucket, it's like saying the cost of oil filter too much compared to automotive. This is a pay to play hobby, if you are not prepared to pay. Probally best to get out now.
