Catch Oil and Sludge to Save the Life of the Engine
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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Ordered this item a little bit ago and upon opening the box I saw that the can had a few scratches on it. I contacted the seller and we worked it out. They were real good at getting back to me right away and apologized. Really good service. Now my review on the product:
The can is like many of the other ones you find on eBay and here but it's built a lot tougher. Several people complain about not having baffles but that's a problem that is easily fixed. Google catch can mods and you will see numerous people talking about how they modded these to work better and the price tag was still wayy below other expensive catch cans. I saw several other catch cans that were cheaper in price but went with this one because you can actually take the whole lid and bottom off this one making it a lot easier to mod it to work better. I ended up sanding and repainting mine to match other parts in my engine bay and I just put it on yesterday. My car had a hard time passing emissions last time...
Nice polish to it. I added copper "Chore Boy" and a baffle inside, which is generally the difference between the cheap catch cans and the pricier ones. The hose included is pretty cheap, and stiff, so it arrives crimped where it was stuffed in the box. I didn't dock any stars for this as I planned to replace with red silicone hose to match the other hose I have under the hood anyway. I would assume most other folks would use their own choice of hose as well. With the intake manifold de-gooed, this should keep the intake, throttle body, and valve train free of gunk for the remainder of this pavement pounders life.
Just upon install.. The bracket provided sucks.. The plastic tubing.. Sucks.. doesn't even fit over the plug... Looks nice, hopefully it does what it's supposed to. UPDATE.. This works.. Pretty damn dandy. I installed it in my old jeep.. (Blowby had me buying filters every two weeks). Not a single drop of oil in my filter, and ! If any water wants to go into the intake manifold.. It gets stuck in the container.. Or at least a large chunk of it. I'd give it a go.
