G'day & Welcome Mate!

I'll move you post to the technical section. Not sure about your engine but fitting a catch can is usually pretty easy. Just find the valve cover breather hose (which vents the crankcase and returns the air to the intake usually before the turbo) redirect that hose, or a replacement hose if not long enough, to a catch can and then the catch can outlet hose gets plugged back to the valve cover breather.

Here's an example from my Triton with a ProVent catch can:




The catch can is the black object just to the right of the radiator.

Errr, no he won't! :icon_redface: I've not actually had a look for the PCV vent myself (and car not available to have a look) . A quick flit around with google didn't show much either.

R5oss may be the one to contact- see this post.

Provent 100 catch can (sold as FlashLube Catch Can Pro). Had to make an external reservoir for it, as the volume it holds, wasn’t enough for what it was collecting.
