I wouldn`t do that at all and contaminate the oil. you will be putting more water than oil back in not good.

lets think for a minute if the main objective of this mod is to eliminate the milkie build up which comes from condensation there should be no condensation compare to with ccv. all the pics that guys have posted of the oil after they drain the can not one mention about water in the oil especially with the higher vacuum condensation is only in the winter haven't seen it in the summer i could be wrong but that's what i'm seen

winter time is where I get a lot of water in the catch can .its a smaller catch can but im emptying it twice a month 90% water 10% blow by oil. so I wouldn`t want water dumping into the oil
summer time I hardley see any water. its the winter especially here with -20c on average through out the winter.

E53 mod?

While it is too late for mine, is this something that could be done on an E53?

My apologies if that's an ignorant question.

There have been a few threads where a catch can was part of modification to the CCV system.

D'oh!

I'm sorry, I have the 4.6 M62B46 engine. For which, I assume, the answer is "no".

I wouldn't say no, someone must have done it, or something similar, you just have to dig.
