Auto manufacturers do not install an oil catch can in the engine compartment but it's something you see often see on tuned or modified cars. Without this, oil solidifies on the valves, which usually leads to knocking and decreases in fuel economy and power. However, once one is installed, the air mixture going through the intake valves and intercooler is purified and less likely to have oil particles in it, keeping the intake tract cleaner. The fuel and air mixture no longer needs to return to the combustion chamber and be re-burned. Without this part, oil coats the cylinder parts and get baked on because of the high temperatures.
Keep Your Engine Clean
Several options of the Mishimoto replacement oil catch can are available on BikeBandit.com. The kit comes with the can, o-ring clamps, mounting bracket, hardware and hoses. The can options range from carbon fiber to polished aluminum or black anodized aluminum to give you engine bay some style. With the can, harmful oil does not get into pressurized turbo plumbing, preventing buildup in the turbocharger, piping, intercooler, and intake manifold. Oil vapors also stay out of the intake system, which helps maintain proper combustion temperature and efficiency. Bracket sets are also available to give the engine bay more flair. Made from anodized aluminum, they come in colors such as black, green, blue, red, and purple.
