Apparently less than 1% of the users on this site care about a clean turbo and want to extend it's life. Wow.

I believe AGP can best answer this from their own thread quote:

"The 4B11 in the Genesis Coupe is a high horsepower turbocharged engine and runs a significant amount of piston-to-wall clearance. The cylinder pressure from the forced air creates more heat in turbocharged applications when compared to non-turbocharged engines, thus the "World Engine" was designed as a "loose" engine for added safety and longevity purposes. Unfortunately, a byproduct of an engine that allows a lot of blow-by is oil residue makes its way past the PCV system and ends up in the intake manifold, and many other places.

Oil residue in the combustion chamber of an engine is bad news, and can lead to really bad news with respect to how your engine runs. We have been using a real solution for over 3 years now that actually separates the oil from the air flowing between the PCV and intake manifold. It sounds easy enough, as many people have tried to adapt simple catch cans and industrial water valves to remove the oil from the air. Those products do work OK but only separate a small amount with respect to how much oil is actually passing through the system. Enter the AGP Oil Accumulator.

Our three chamber oil separator gathers the airborn oil particles through the middle chamber. Oil is separated from the air through the filtering media and drains through a perferated aluminum plate on the bottom side of the middle chamber then accumulating in the bottom chamber. As this oil gets filtered through the middle chamber, clean air is then filtered again and exits through the top chamber. This three chamber system design provides the best protection against unwanted oil making its way to the combustion process.

The bottom of the Oil Accumulator has a threaded 1/4" NPT bung and a plug to allow the user an easy way to drain the oil.

The Oil Accumulator is completely constructed of aluminum and is highly polished to provide some extra 'bling' to your engine bay. This fits the Genesis Coupe perfectly and comes with hose and hose clamps for an easy installation."

Just noticed a decend amount of oil on the anodized horn of my GReddy Type RS BOV. I really need to buy this. I might add myself to the list, how long do we have to do it? What is the benefit to both of them?

Starting all over with TurboXS

More places to catch oil and it'll look cool . Hopefully someone else has more technical reasons.

So aren't they both the same thing/used for the same reason just one goes back to the intake and the other one don't??

I can't believe that we are unable to round up just 5 people in all of the web to get on board this great deal. I don't get it...

Yes, in a general sense you are correct, but.....

Here is the details of the breather:

Instead of venting your oil vapors back into the intake system, they are rerouted into a fully tig welded and polished breather system. Using the same filtering media as the popular Oil Accumulator, this breather vents to the atmosphere through a washable/reusable air filter but it separates the oil from the air. That separated oil collects in the bottom chamber of the breather instead of finding its way through your intake, turbo, hard pipes, intercooler, etc.

If you read the info above regarding the catch can, it seems to me that they work in conjunction with one another. Either is helpful, but both is even better. From my understanding, the catch can filtrates the air accumulating the oil residue that is in the air into the bottom of the can. The breather will get then receive the air & filtrate it once more, but release it back into the atmostphere instead of sending it back through the system.

I've never owned a turbo, thus had the opportunity to see these products at work. So, if I'm way off here, someone please correct me.
Thanks

Tufast thats all right... It keeps the oil out of the turbo blades (builds up, unbalances, etc etc) and out of the throttle body (who wants to burn oil? when we need clean air and fuel for power?!!?! lol)
