I've been using this off brand baffled catch can since the before they had other versions. I put a bit of brillo pad in the baffle compartment and teflon tape on the dipstick and main body threads to ensure no vacuum leaks for the past... 5-6 years? Pretty happy with it.

I'm pretty certain you can find them much cheaper than on the website. Possibly amazon. Minor flaw in the seal, but easily remedied.

Fuel foam works a treat, I've never been confident that little bits of steel won't pass through when using steel wool.

This, plus this, plus some 12 an fittings and fuel foam.

Use a big holesaw on the top to install the "fuel cell lid" (access for putting in fuel foam and servicing the AOS i.e. cleaning).

Replace the surge tank small fittings with 12an for the breather feeds.

Drains, fit a valve on one for draining and block the other.

Once fabricated paint with VHT krinkle paint.

Shouldn't cost more than around $200, lots of volume, lots of direction changes.

I've never seen a real racecar, apart from shop cars, with these brand name AOS/catch cans, they all use custom made items with volume, baffles and other internal forms of media for stripping oil.

Opinions may vary

Like the performance of some AOS/catch cans.

Had I known what I know now, I would have done this a lot time ago.

Nothing. You do not need one with This platform unless you have a MAJOR turbo setup.

Save your money.

dont use steel wool.



Brillo is a brand I think, but this is the stuff:



Fuel foam even better you can make it the exact shape of the baffle chamber. But, I dont have that stuff laying around.
