Spulen is pleased to present the most complete catch can for Volkswagen MK7 Golf R and Audi 8V S3. Let’s begin by talking about the purpose of a catch can. A catch can kit is designed to capture oil vapors from your engine rather than allowing them to be recirculated. By capturing these oil vapors your engine will run smoother and more efficiently, helping to prevent costly carbon build up on engine components.
The Spulen Billet Catch Can is a true piece of art. Constructed from a solid block of billet aluminum each catch can is carefully machined to precise tolerances. The interior of the catch can features a dual chamber design and baffle plate to provide superior separation of air and oil vapors. Dual built-in, -10an male fittings allow for maximum air flow. A conveniently located dipstick allows you to easily check the level inside of the catch can. The bottom of the catch can features a built in mounting bracket. An easy open petcock fitting located on the bottom of the catch can allows you to easily empty the contents of the can. A removable low profile bolt is located out of sight and allows for easy disassembly for thorough cleaning. In order to provide clearance for the catch can, the factory upper washer fluid reservoir needs to be replaced. Included is a CNC aluminum filler neck and cap. The washer fluid system capacity is reduced to 2.4 liters from the factory 3.7 liters.
Perhaps the best features of the Spulen Catch Can Kit are found in the included CNC adapter plate. The billet aluminum adapter plate was carefully designed to directly replace the factory plastic PCV valve located on the cylinder head. The adapter plate fastens to the cylinder head using the included stainless steel bolts which feature tapered heads for a flush installation. An integrated baffle insures oil vapors are drawn into the catch can and engine oil is not. In a stroke of brilliance Spulen’s Engineers were able to incorporate a dual-port boost tap into the adapter. One port on the boost tap is used to provide vacuum to the factory evap purge valve while the second port is user configurable with the included hose barbs. One barb features a small opening and is perfect for connecting a boost gauge while the other barb features a larger opening for use with a diverter valve, water methanol kit, or other accessories. A removable plug is also included if you do not need to use the second port.
Finishing off the Spulen Catch Can Kit are dual -10an braided hoses with aluminum fittings. The first line connects the CNC adapter plate to the catch can while the second line connects the catch can to the inlet on the turbocharger. A special adapter fitting is included and allows the -10an hose to seamlessly connect to the port on the inlet of the turbocharger, eliminating the plastic hose used from the factory.
Understanding that keeping a factory appearance is a must, the Spulen Catch Can Kit is completely compatible with the factory engine cover. No modifications or trimming is required to maintain the factory engine cover.
