MINI (2002-Current)
A New MINI Engineering Catch Tank is machined from billet 6061 aluminum alloy and anodized for stealth and added surface durability. The NM tank catches the oil and moisture in the blow-by gas that can cause carbon and sludge build-up in the turbo, intake system and the engine. Every piece of the kit can be disassembled for thorough cleaning and servicing.

Fits following Cooper S models with the N14 Turbo engine:

2007-2010 R56 MINI Cooper S Hardtop 
2008-2010 R55 MINI Cooper S Clubman 
2009-2010 R57 MINI Cooper S Convertible

The NM Engineering Catch Tank kit also features the Patent Pending Locking Clip system for securing the billet adapters to the OEM plastic fittings. It allows installer to simply slip the adapter onto the OE fitting and the clip will snap in place keeping the adapter from backing out. The kit includes block-off plug for the rear PCV port.

Not-So-Fun Fact:
MINI dealer service charges 5-6 hours ($600-700) to clean your intake port from carbon build-up caused by the oil/moisture circulating back into the internal. This procedure is 'recommended' around 60-70,000 miles, after your warranty expires.

Some states (like California) have ever tightening requirements for emissions testing and inspections. Always check your local regulations on compliance for street use.

 
 
Question:
I've been having problems with the catch can quick connector on the passenger side PCV hose on the engine. It's leaking badly and have had to disconnect it. The top of the valve cover has been having oil seeping around the top and down the back of the engine. At first, I thought it was because the valve covers had gone bad, like 3 times but as it turns out the connector was to blame.
Answer:
NM engineering the manufacturer of the catch can has offered to adjust the clip and replace the o-ring on the connector at no charge if you would like to send it to them.

According to NM, there are 3 possible reasons for the leak

1.  repeated on/off of the hose from the valve cover wears the connector over time, causing it to leak.
2. new vs. old valve cover production tolerance
3. OEM vs. aftermarket valve cover tolerance differences

"To know whether the clip is seating properly is simple, do a tug test. The clip should sit flush inside the channel and the billet fitting will not come off without removing or spreading the clip first. Also inspect the o-ring, make sure it is not damaged. "
