I previously installed the catch can mod in my e39.

I have installed a M56 valve cover with integral CCV in my e53. This seems to work really well. I am not using much oil, and don't have to worry about the CCV under the intake manifold...

I'll get some in the next couple of days. I thought I already had some, but I can't find them.

just keep in mind that will all this I noticed a small oil leak that i had thought was from the OIL Level sensor- it wasnt, it was from a split RUBBER Cover to my OIL DIPSTICK TUBE.
5k into the MOD and I chickened out thinking it was my RMS or OIL PAN GASKET.
Went back to our conventional CCV factory set up with 5-30 Supertech FS.(yes-thats right)

So far 1/2 quart low .2000 miles in.SWitch to Rotella next.
I wouldn't expect much by changing oils. Before I did the mod I tried various weights up to 10w60 and had no appreciable effect on consumption.

yep , im back there again - i still have my set up though and ive become adept at taking off and installing the conventional CCV in our cars that i dont mind it at all now ...current consumption is "acceptable" to me but i would like it close to the negligible Bavarian moD result like i had...
