Again, I wanted to install the oil catch can because of potential for oil puddling in the intake manifold and oil blow-by effects like fouled spark plugs, combustion chambers and intake valves. I bought my catch can from an eBay vendor (Zero Tek Motorsports) for $37. Much cheaper than paying $80-$100+ for a Cusco or Greddy catch can. Of course, you could always make your own, as explained in T&A’s how-to, but I thought $37 was a cheap price for a ready-made one. Plus, Zero Tek’s kit is very complete including bracket’s, hose, clamps, adapters, etc. Now, on to the pics…
Oil catch can purchased on eBay for $37.
Layout of oil catch can system.
Route one length of 9mm hose from the PCV valve to the inlet nipple of the catch can. DC header still looks like new after one year.
Attach the supplied 15mm-to-9mm adapter to the nipple on the intake manifold and then attach another length of 9mm hose from the adapter to the outlet nipple of the catch can.
Find a suitable place for mounting the oil catch can. I decided to mount the catch can to the radiator shroud using the supplied bracket and fasteners.
Finished install with engine cover in place.
UPDATE: After these pics were taken, I had to replace the blue plastic hose because they become soft when the engine warms up and then partially collapse from engine vacuum. I replaced it with 11/32″ and 19/32″ crankcase ventilation hose from the auto parts store…
