Hi Guys,
Has anoyone installed the above ? Was think it might help minimize carbon build up in a log run.

Thanks

The N20 had a much cleverer oil mist minimisation strategy then its predecessors and a better recovery system...I looked at in detail and even on opening up the intakes found at 50k miles little to note when compared to say the N54s..
