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.
