Allisport oil breather Tank experience?

Did some searching and didn't find much to answer my question.

Is anyone running one of these on their Defender 200TDi. What are your impressions of this product. Is it really better than an OEM or Genuine replacement part? Allisport advertises that the baffle is superior to the gauze type. Thanks for the info!

I am running one on my 200tdi. I really can't compare to OEM as I swapped mine before the instal. I have no complaints.

I'm running one on my 300 tdi , the oil plastic one was leaking so I replaced it with a new bright metal one. No complaints so far.

Any other reviews on this thing? Noticed some oil on my filter by the recirc fitting. Assuming my standard one isn't cutting it. Don't really want to spend the money on it but with my increased fueling and boost, kinda feeling like I don't have a choice.

Generally the factory one leaks because of the o-ring, simple "fix" is to upgrade the o-ring. I've used the O-ring #407087 from Napa, which is essentially a thicker-style o-ring for A/C setups. It's a cheaper fix @ $0.63, and solves the biggest complaint with the cyclone breathers:

See mine isn't leaking (unless an air leak is making it not perform it's job correctly). Oil isn't dripping where it inserts into the head. Oil is making its way through the recirc hose to my air filter. Not a lot but some.

I dunno I just ordered it along with the PiperX air filter. I'll report back.

I put one on 200Tdi when I did the swap. I also did the radiator, electric fan, expansion tank and intercooler as well as hoses. No complaints.

You want in? Still have a few grand in parts to go ($3032.40 as per my spreadsheet)... under body protection, lots of SDO bits, upgraded turbo yadda yadda... and that is if I don't go for air conditioning or a soft top.

I'd need to find a way to part with one of mine. 😜

The plastic one need (as mention before) new o'ring once in a while. You can also clean it. If, along the years, gunk come blocking it, you will get pressure and, the paper air filter will get oily. If both action are properly done and you still get an oily paper air filter... Might be something else (blow by pressure?)

My opinion regarding this is, the cheap plastic one should do easily the job.. the bright shiny metal one is.. the bright shiny one...

My 2 cdn cent.

This is a good topic for us that are still running gas engines. I've been kickin' this idea around for awhile. I've thought of taking the mesh breather out of my pass side valve cover, cutting it down short, removing that dirty 'ol mesh, welding the top back on and running to a catch can then run hose to the intake. This I hope would reduce the normal amount of oil and water vapor going into my intake and gumming up the works. Sorry to take over any/or butt in on the thread. Just thought while the topic came up I would try for a little feedback.

Thanks Lav, I need to try this^^. My breather tube is currently directed to a dry spot inside the engine bay and I'm getting barely any seepage. I mean barely anything. I've been wondering if this could be because my unit is not properly sealed. Skinny Pete and I tried testing it once and it didn't seem to hold pressure.
