This is a bad idea. the whole point of the catch can is to collect oil by letting the vapors cool and condense. It will be much more effective in a cool place.

This is where we mounted it on Funge's car. It's easily drained here without removing it from the car. You can't see it's shiny bling (the main reason why most people get catch cans) but it's 100% functional.

If there is a baffle between the two in/out ports on the catch can there shouldn't be a big problem with the oil condensing. Thi is where I have my Ebay Special TRD Catch Can mounted:



Edit: Btw I have now blocked off the port on the throttle body and ran the line down to the turbo intake pipe so it looks like this:

I think BBZOOLOO has a very nice setup. (Custom baffels to handle the oil vapor, and return only air back to the turbo, and trap the oil in the tank where it can be dumped back into the pan, or otherwise removed.

I have had zero problems with my atmosphere vented "catch can" to date.
