    Importance of Catch Cans! (Video)

    Here is just a short video showing the importance of catch cans on GDI applications, this also shows why our intakes do not come with connectors for these lines!

    Enjoy!

    Thanks Tyson, I don't think you can stress enough how important it is to keep that mess from getting in to your engine.

    Wow, I can't believe that much came out of the breather side... and how little came out of the PCV.

    It would be interesting to see carbon build up of a car with catch cans at 40k vs one without. In the VW world the catch cans didn't help all that much but there was more success using meth injection. That and in their patent it is claimed that an italian tune up(over 3k rpm for 20 mins) would clean the carbon.

    This was when we were doing quite bit of dyno testing and road testing, there is a surprising amount, but the car was also very new, so that may have something to do with it.

    Catch cans are definitely a life saver! Or engine saver I should say

    I think that location, weather, and driving style seems to have quite a bit to do with it, as we have always gotten more out of the breather side

    That would actually be a very interesting comparison. Methanol injection is great as not only does it not allow for new build up, but will also clean some of the existing build up. Truthfully, the Italian tune up does work fairly well, it just isn't how most people drive on a regular basis. Though I don't drive my car much below 3k

    Wow, if the Italian tuneup actually works at those engine speeds then I guess we just found one advantage to our very low gearing. It only takes running at 70 mph to hit 3000 rpm, so that should apply to most people, I just wonder how often it needs to be doneto be effective... But with everything Tork is saying and I live pretty close to them for the weather factor, I'd personally do the one can on the breather side to keep the intake and IC clean while my road trips will take care of the intake valve buildup.

    But it says that the car should be run at at least 3000 rpm under LOAD. How can you apply load at 3000 rpm? Pulling a trailer?

    I am not sure how it is in WA, but in MI it is pretty flat... so will not work.
