Anyone install catch cans? What did you use? I noticed a little oil when I installed my new intakes.
Ive been told you need to keep a closed system on a MAF car.Environmental issues aside, is it possible to simply delete the OEM gas recirculating system that makes the catch can necessary in the first place and vent the gas outside (avoiding carbon build up altogether)?
See video link - he shows the internals of the Mishimoto OCC. I presume the same brass filter and vapor plate are used in the VR30DDTT kit:I have used Mishimoto in the past.. some stuff was great, other stuff, not so much..
This might fall into the not so much category. If they had an engineer put so much work in the bracket, which engineer was on vacation for the media/filtering inside the can?
I never knew there was a difference..
A catchcan is supposed to be a air-oil separator, thats its sole function.
He clearly states in the video that the AOS in the video has a separate oil return that dumps any liquid oil captured back into the engine, bypassing the air intake. A simple catch can does not do that.I'm confused as well? (Wouldn't be the first time!)
The video doesn't make sense to me. The guy said a a catch can needs to be emptied periodically but an AOS doesn't? I've never seen any AOS that didn't eventually need to be emptied. What is he talking about?
I always thought that an AOS WAS a catch can, of sorts. Just a "better" (more advanced) version of a catch can. With some sort of filter (steel wool?), baffles, in order to pass "only" (assuming it worked perfectly) AIR back into the engine????

The PCV line shouldnt be confused with a vac line. Last thing you want to use as a source of vac is the PCV line.According to the video above, the difference is that the oil air separation is more complete in the Oil-Air Separator. This is achieved with a better system of baffles and by cooling the mixture. These Oil-Air separators are HUGE though and I doubt there is room in the engine bay of a Q50 or Q60 for one of these.
The Mishimoto catch can looks interesting. I wish there was an install video. I agree that the HKS BOV's wouldn't be "in the way" per se, but I wonder if they placed it in the back of the engine bay because you have to tap into the vacuum line. If this is the case, I have already tapped into the vacuum line for the HKS BOV install. I guess you could tap into it again, but I would wonder if this would compromise the function of these components placed in series.
IridiumRS400, these ship in March. Are you going to be the first to install? Please upload pics or a video of the installHere ya go. Mishimoto just released one for the Q60 VR30DDTT:
