Oil Catch Can
Here's the can, 951 OCC bought from Saikou Michi in the US.
Quality is excellent and service and delivery were great.
The advantages of this catch can are:
Internal design is every good
19mm inlet and outlet to match the 1.8t breather pipes
Not too bling!
Here's my diagram for fitment. Blue is the catch can and fittings, red is the secondary air system which I plan to remove:
1 19mm tee
1 19mm straight joiner
8 hose clips
6ft oil resistant hose
1 Saikou Michi 951 oil catch can
X marks the spot!
An attempt to show where the bottom connection leads to:
Today I completed the catch can install. I used the following lengths of 19mm
oil resistant pipe:
OCC <-> intake 500mm
OCC <-> T-piece 145mm
T-Piece <-> engine 210mm
T-Piece <-> downwards 290mm
Total length 1.145m
First job - tidy up the wire to the oil temp sensor and the red wire running
down the side of the engine bay:
Next - remove the factory breather pipes
The pipes were in decent condition but a bit gunged up
Next - get the most awkward connection done
After that it was straight forward
The engine cover needed a minor modification to go back in place
All achieved with the minimum of bleeding and hardly any foul language
This is the contents of the can after a couple of months:
