Prevent Sludge Build Up In Valves & Intake Manifold
An oil catch tank/can is used in turbo applications, or high-performance racing applications where excessive blow-by (leakage past the piston rings) of air and fuel vapor occurs. This creates a positive pressure in the crankcase. During engine operation, blow-by gases, as well as oil mist from the rotating components of the engine, pass through the PCV valve and are routed back into the intake for the engine to burn off. However, some of the oil mist and other by-products settle along the engine intake and over time form a gunk. The oil catch tank collects such oil mist and condenses the fuel vapors while allowing cleaner gases to be passed back into the intake.
Installation instruction is not included. Professional installer is highly recommended!

As other reviews have mentioned, this is an extremely basic can with fairly cheap construction. Unlike the other reviewers, I did not use this tank as a catch can—it was used to feed 2 stroke oil to the Sohn adapter on an RX-8.
Using it for this purpose required me to disassembly the tank for cleaning. One thing that I noticed after taking it apart was that one of the threaded holes for the tank level tube was slightly too wide and did not make a tight seal. I put RTV sealant on all of the threads before reconnecting them. After waiting 24 hours for the sealant to dry completely, I test-filled the tank with 2 stroke oil. It became apparent, almost immediately, that the sealant was not sufficient in preventing a leak. After draining the tank and wiping off the leak, I put a generous amount of JB Weld around the connections and let it dry overnight. Unfortunately, it still leaked slightly when I tested it the next day. After another application of JB Weld, the...
Functionality, it works just fine. I did clean out the metal shavings before use. It did have scratches on it and the color is not red, it is pink very pink but since it was cheap and I didn't care enough to send it back.
Product was just as described, arrived on time, had run out of color ordered and received a call letting me know. I chose different color and am satisfied.
