Dual oil catch can setup


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the attachment below is the correct setup for the dual oil catch can system for V6s?

I am thinking to get the Radium Evora dual oil catch can kit with a little bit of mod with the bracket to fit the V6s.

Any thoughts/insights would be appreciated.

 

Cheers

Is the catch cab on the cup R a dual setup?

I thought it just had a single catch can that fits the left bank that feeds in just before the throttle body

Arun_D is correct, Cup R has one catch tank only but it collects oils from both breather pipes. 

The reason why I didn't go for the Mocal was because it's the breather type catch can, it will smell really bad (Ok for race car) and you might get oil dripping from the breather cap area. 

Anyway I have got mine fitted and it working perfectly, here are some pictures:

Hi @keith84_hk, how are you finding this catch can set up? Working well or any issues? Thanks

@Mattmahope Yup they have been working well, I now relocated them under the coolant reservoir with a custom bracket, cutting out from a 2mm carbon fibre sheet so I can put back the engine cover and looks OEM. It picked up around 50ml of oils from the bank 2 (The tail lights side) since my install back in June (6 months) while the bank 1 still pretty clean and barely any oil picked up in the catch can.

It's to prevent oil and other contaminants buildup inside your engine/intake plenum, especially under high load conditions such as track day.

It's the precaution mod with no performance gain.
