Hey guys,

Any of you who has an Oil Catch Can installed. Which one would you recommend? I have 60K now on my tucson and I know it's a little late to install one of these but I still feel like it's not too late to do this. Any recommendation that you had good experience with? Links to purchase would be very helpful too.

Thank you all in advance!

Hey guys I decided to go with the following link.

My question is, what's that extra filter at the top? It looks like it's an extra spot for the air to go in. Someone in there said not to do it because it can mess up your vacuum? I wasn't too sure what that meant. Anyone has any insight whether or not that extra filter is necessary or not?
The filter on top allows the CatchCan to vent into the atmosphere, the downside about that is it STINKS! and isn't good for the environment. I would recommend a sealed unit with a good quality baffle.

In the ad it states the filter is for pre-pcv vehicles I am installing one, that I put together from parts. It is possible, but unlikely that it could freeze in the winter. The engine bay would be quickly above freezing in the winter, and the PCV gasses are pretty hot leaving the engine, so I would think if it froze, it would thaw quickly. The low micron filter does not have a very large filter area, and may eventually plug up, causing some vacuum issues to the pcv valve.

Something like this.

Note doesn't have to be a 3 port system you can get a 2 port or just block 1 port depending on your engine.
Or you can build one your self, or you can get a branded catch can which are normally better quality but the $$.

Thanks for the link and recommendation.
How can one tell if it's a PRE PCV or POST PCV setup? I bought the one I linked because it looked exactly the same as the POST per say PCV Setup.

Also, what's the point of Pre-PCV? I thought catch can purpose was to catch and contaminants coming after PCV anyway

thanks again for your time!

Pre pcv vehicles were like before 1973 (before emissions) and just let the engine crankcase fumes out into the atmosphere.
I could not find any catch cans online exactly like I am using.

So the link I provided I guess only works with a Pre-PVC setup right?
They look exactly the same as a normal oil catch can lol

It can be used with both systems, you just use 2 of the ports

yup just connect the catch can to your PCV and then output back to your intake, just get a sealed system with a baffle but you can use the one you have purchased.

Thank you all for the comments.
The one that I provided is not sealed? If you are referring to the top part for the air vent isn't it already sealed if you are planning not to use the vent?
Also, it says that it's baffled but do you think the one I provided is not?
Sorry for the many questions, I just want to get this right and not mess up my car.
