Mustang Catch Can Install

Posted on the June 21st, 2009 under mustang by John

I was having some issues with some oil getting back into the intake via the PCV valve so I descided to add a catch can.  The catch can’s job is to do just what it says, catch junk that may pass through the PCV before the air is recycled back into your intake.    I grabbed a crappy can off eBay and modified it to fit my needs.  The first thing I did was disassemble the unit, it was put together like crap.   I re-threaded and sealed all the connections and tested it to hold pressure.    I also dilled out a few of the connections to support more air volume.

This pic is after I drilled it out, the holes before were 1/2 the size.

Everything re-sealed and ready to go…

All the parts taped ready for install

The clear tube so you can see how full the can is.
