Designed for the DIY installers, the universal APR Catch Can Systems and Accessories are designed for use on vehicles where APR does not sell an application specific Catch Can System. The APR Oil Catch Can System traps excessive crankcase oil vapors and gunk from entering the engine. This helps to reduce carbon buildup on intake valves, octane lowering oil vapors and oil pooling in the intake tract. The can 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 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:
The APR Oil Catch Can System eliminates boost pressure from seeing the front PCV port, where applicable. 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.
