APR is pleased to present the ultimate Oil Catch Can System for the MK6 Golf / GTI
The APR Oil Catch Can System traps excessive crankcase oil vapors and gunk from entering the engine. The system eliminates a possible performance robbing boost leak, while reducing carbon buildup on intake valves, octane lowering oil vapors and oil pooling within the intake tract. It’s a simple modification to install, drains in seconds with the flick of a knob, and is recommended at all stages of performance.
An engine produces extreme pressures within its cylinders during operation and some ultimately slips by the piston rings and pressurizes the engine’s crankcase. This is exacerbated when increasing horsepower and driving harder. To relieve the pressure, the engine uses a failure prone PCV system that dumps the pressure, along with oil vapors, back into the intake tract to be consumed by the engine. Unfortunately, this results in the following performance robbing scenarios:
Oil vapors mix with the air/fuel mixture, which reduces octane and hurts performance. Carbon builds up on the back of intake valves, which reduces airflow and hurts performance. Messy oil pools in the intake tract and coats the intercooler, leading to hose degradation, and reduced IC effectiveness. The factory PCV system can fail, creating a massive boost leak that directly pressurizes the crankcase.
The APR Oil Catch Can System eliminates boost pressure from seeing the front PCV port. The system routes crankcase gasses through the APR catch can, which filters oil vapors through a track-proven four-staged baffling system. The vapors pool in the bottom of the can, while the rest of the pressure is diverted back to the intake tract where it’s burned off by the engine.
REQUIREMENT NOTES: The manifold PCV port must be blocked off to use this product. This can be accomplished with the Spulen boost tap. Also, the system is only designed for use without the factory engine cover installed. The rear blockoff is included. This system requires removal of the factory "noise pipe" found on some models.
*Please Note: Fits 1.8T/2.0T Gen 1 engines only. Does not fit 2013+ Gen 3 engines. Use the installed photo above as a reference. This kit does not fit ROW market vehicle with a charcoal canister.
