Saikou Michi Oil Catch Can

I can confiirm that this Oil Catch Can does work and does exactly what it is supposed to.
You will need to purchase a few things from the auto parts store:
1) Apx 16" of fuel grade line
2) clips to attach the line to the can
3) 2 bolts and wahsers.

linky: Saikou Michi Oil Catch Can Tank Company
made in the USA goodness.

There is a specific bracket that will mount right to your passenger side frame rails. It's a little tight in this area, but it can be installed properly. The silver hose is part of the a/c unit and the red/black wires are for my sharkracing led drl's. I can get a better pictue of the installed area anyone wants.


Use these bolts to attach the bracket to the frame... pre threaded holes are already in place (thanks hyundai )


Take off your enginne cover and you will have to take this hose off the PCV valve. Just pull straight off.


the can and bracket installed should look like this:

Attach fuel grade hose like this:

the factory portion of the hose you removed from the PCV valve will attach to the lower/return line coming out of the Oil Catch Can.

After about 3 weeks I have this crap in my Catch Can:


In a glass cup it looks like this after sitting for a few minutes...

that's WAY MORE than I thought I would have. Just glad the catch can is doing it job.

Any other questions, feel free to ask. I am on here almost every single day.

Pricing/ordering

If you want to order, send an email to saikou.michi.co@cox.net
you can choose your sticker color. The video link I posted about is pretty much the same for our car. I didn't bend the bracket though.
Be warned he takes about a week to build your kit

from "answers.com"
An oil catch can is used in turbo applications, or high-performance race applications where excessive blow-by (leakage past the piston rings) of air and fuel vapor occurs. This creates a positive pressure in the crankcase. Engine manufactures have placed a valve on the engine block which releases this pressure. This valve is known as a PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) valve. During engine operation, blow-by gases, as well as oil mist from the rotating components of the engine, pass through the PCV valve and are routed back into the intake for the engine to burn off. However, some of the oil mist and other products settle along the engine intake and over time form a "gunk." The oil catch can collects the oil mist and condenses the fuel vapors while allowing "cleaner" gases to be passed back into the intake. Typically the blow-by gasses are passed through a wire mesh, which give the vapor droplets something to adhere to. Since the oil catch cans condense the vapor portion of the gasses, they will need to be drained periodically of all the oil, fuel and other contaminants

it is installed in our car beside one of the lines for the a/c unit. I should have explained it a bit better.

An I understand now lol pretty interesting, so dumbed down all your doing is not allowing "used" oil to return back to the motor, and it helps prevent that "gunk" build up answers .com was referring to....?

More like particles of oil, gas, water and carbon. The small carbon floateis you see are a major contributor to carbon buildup. This will not stop carbon build up, but will certainly slow the buildup and slow the need for stuff like bg44k and the like.
Hope that helps. I view it as preventative as I plan on keeping the car for about 10 years or so.

I understand that since this is part of the emissions system this mod will void your warranty. With a 10yr/100k power train I don't see the point. Help me out here.

best clarify what is exactly covered under your 10yr/100k power train warranty. its different than the emission system warranty which this is clearly part of.
