    Hi m8,
    Standard the breather is plumbed in from the crossover pipe to the airflow pipe between airfilter and turbo (and after the AFM).

    In 1.9CDTi airbox conversions many just put a breather filter on the breather pipe, some plumb it into the lower half of the airbox and some plumb it in as standard (like me - i did but a Courtenay 1.9 CDTi conversion pipe for this).

    I didn't like the idea of the breather pipe only having a filter on the end.

    On having an oil catch tank you's just plumb it back in to the system (camcover to catch tank to inlet pipe befor turbo). You could try just using a filter on the end and see if the oil smell goes...

    HTH
