: New Catch Can on the way

07-28-11, 11:28 PM
Hey all you CC freaks, I have a double CC from Saikou Michi being custom made and will arrive in about 10 days.

I ordered the LS1 black with white logo. Because the normal mounting location is currently occupied by my nitrous solenoids,
the mounting location will change. Therefore the CC mount and curved fresh out air tube on the side is being relocated.

The LS crowd rants and raves about em. One thing for sure is they are pretty inexpensive and will address the fresh and foul
air lines.

I will post picks of the install and can when all done.

Until then, this is the can.....http://www.saikoumichi.com/Stage1_LS1_page.html

Is there anything inside to catch the oil vapor? Those hallow ones don't work. Sucks I left behind my BT on my trade in. Doh!

Cmon man, I have done some homework. http://www.saikoumichi.com/OCC_explanation.htm

I have a good one now, ultimate CC from 42draft design, but it is heavy, has 5/8 nipples, and only addresses the foul air line.

After modifying the in/out lines to compensate for the 5/8 to the 3/8 lines on our engine, the current can is collecting a lovely mocha.

I recently deceided to address the fresh air line as well. So I needed to get a double can or two singles.

Looking forward to the install pics and results. Curtis, if you're happy with the new setup and would like to sell your old one I might be interested. Let me know. And for those of you who think cbloveday doesn't know about catch cans, THINK AGAIN! He's a catch can slut! I heard he even has one hooked up to his dishwasher.

I will let you know about my single can setup once I get the new one going and whether I like it better.
You got dibs on it. Meanwhile, I got emulsion to tend too. LOL

How much oil or oil resedue have you gotten out of your previous catch can setup?

I ran one last year if you recall. It was attached to the valley port foul line only.

I got this from the can in March 2011. I had 900 miles on it. The average temp was 25 degrees so in this photo a good deal was from condensation.


I currently have the can on the foul line and it has 800 miles on it dead summer heat. If you like, I can post up the pic of it's contents when the new can arrives and is installed?

I am interested in seeing what it collects over the summer.

Yes I would be interested in a pic of the new catch can contents. Thank you so much for the response!

Wow that is Alot of oil thanks for the info.. What are the benefits from this mod? Only I'm thinking its good mod for non supercharged cars, but on supercharged cars those rotors are very close together they are coted with special paint small amount of oil film to coat them and lubricate other parts would make them last longer.

Not all of that is oil. This was what was collected in the winter months, so some of it is water from condensation.

I definately hear you on the debate of whether a CC is beneficial or a detriment to SC engines.

I know the NA cars typically have more oil collected.

After doing some research on this I concluded the following:

Excess oil on supercharger fins actually inhibits heat transfer. If you look at the bottom of your SC you will see pooling of oil.

I am not an expert on the topic by any means. I welcome any data you may have on SC engines and catch cans.
