Does it work and how much oil gets accumulated in the catch can?

Best to minimise oil getting in the engine.  I dont wait for it to get too full.  Mines a daily, no track but spirited driving now and then.  Takes about 8 months or so for it to reach 40-50% full.

I know others who track their car say they can fill theirs up in the day

Definitely worth the investment. Since I installed I have had less than 1,000 kms and it's almost a quarter full. Its daily driven and attended one F drive day.

the RR website says you have to modify the engine cover to fit the catch cans?

The install of the bracket and catch can itself is simple and will only take 10 minutes.

At the beginning I debated trimming the engine cover, considering its so nice why would you hack at it, it doesn't make sense. I researched and plenty of RC F owners install the bracket inverted making the catch can sit lower in the engine bay creating clearance with the engine cover. No trimming required! 

It did install it this way, easy enough to do, the catch can will sit snug up against the cable & aluminum piping. The challenge with this set up is, it takes several attempts at angling the catch can correctly to fit it within the tight space and bolt into the bracket ie: pain in the butt and grazed knuckles and fingers. This would be fine if you only street drive your car as you would only be emptying catch can every 6-8 months, so no drama. 

I on the other hand drive my "F" like it should be driven, hard and hit the drag & track occasionally so need easy access to drain the catch can.

See photos of trimmed cover, I managed to get a straight cut with a metal cutting blade and a file.

Yes, if you paint bracket black and order the Coil Pneumatic in black it would be steath upgrade. 

Before you order hit up the gents Rafi & Simon from RR Racing as they were introducing new colors for hosing. I looked into the black hosing and Coil Pneumatic don't deal direct to consumers and all available alternatives online are metric and not imperial so too small by a couple of mm.
