So I dealt with the cold northeast winter weekend and finally installed my Forge Motorsports Twincooler [Intercooler] kit. While disconnecting the stock hoses I came across my worst fear. For all of you CATCH CAN haters and non-believers out there, here’s another example why a catch can may help us out or at least catch some of this oil buildup. These pictures below show the oil build up after 5K miles on a 2011 MKVI. I know the next item on my list will be the -Forge Motorsports Transverse TSI Oil Catch Can- for sure! I used paper towels to clean the small pool of oil out and then stuffed it inside the hoses to get out as much of the oil coating as possible. Needless to say the paper towel was brown.

Sadly, this item is not yet listed on our website in a US-spec version.
I will do my very best to have our web guy add it to the site within the next few days.
Please bear in mind, however, that we are currently out of stock of the kits. We have a batch of 60 in production, however, I don't have a specific ETA as to a completion date at the moment.
Bear with us.
I was actually able to install this kit last weekend and installation is pretty easy. Also I was able to run the tubing from the Africa plate to the can without cuting the engine cover. Just used a little toy to cover the hole where the oil pcv used to be. Lol.
So I'm going to post my full review later here and in a seperate thread that links to my Forge Twintake and Twincooler reviews, but I wanted to give a quick heads up.
The fit and finish of this system is top knotch. I could tell right away that the Africa plate was a huge part of the cost. It really is a quality piece to bolt on top of your engine and replace that POS plastic PCV system. The greatest satistisfaction came from looking at the stock plastic PCV system on my garage floor after the install was complete.
Now, I have one question for those who have installed this kit already in their MKVI's.
When you screw the Africa plate down with using only 9 of the 10 original screws, did the one screw at the top of the plate closest to the firewall not tighten all the way down?
In this picture below, the top most screw hole does not get tightened down all the way. Has anyone else noticed this?
There is a gap between the plate and the underside of the screw head.
I don't think there will be a leak but I may try shortening this screw to screw it down tightly.
Also did your clip on plug with the three available holes come with a lot of pink grease?
Did you leave rhe grease in there? I dont want any grease to eventually pass through my boost gauge tap.
