Cyclone Breather Pipe on a 200Tdi

What if I just ran a pipe so any residual oil fell to the ground instead of plumbing the thing into my air intake?
Am I missing some logic as to why it needs to be plumbed into the air system?

Not so green but why not a catch tank?

The way I understand it, the vacuum drawn from the air intake to the cyclone breather helps reduce crankcase pressure. That said, I don't think you are going to hurt anything if it's not connected to the intake, but I don't see why you wouldn't just leave it connected. That way no contaminants can get into the valve covers.

On the 19J motor(2.5DT) the residual oil is drained back into the oil sump. Another option might be to connect a tee with the turbo oil return line.

I modified my 200tdi's configuration and replaced my intake tee with a short tube point to earth.

In reality, nothing actually come out of my cyclone. The drain tube isn't even oily.

I think there's a difference between when the intake is essentially sucking oily junk out of the valvetrain and when it's open to atmosphere.

I personally don't see a good reason to suck oil into the intake. It seems like a dumb idea and I don't understand why it's done.

My issue is how/where to tie it in with my intake system.
I ordered a tee from a place in England for $48. I'll be able to tie it in that way.
Thanks all!
