D1 Spec Oil Catch Can

NOTE: This review is for the D1 Spec Oil Catch Can (round silver 9mm version). Also this is my own personal experience with the product. So obviously that will vary from person to person.


Appearance - 5/5:

The design is simple yet compact which means it will fit cramped engine bays. The polished silver color is nice and adds abit of bling to the engine bay aswell.




Performance - 5/5:

With my car being an N/A set-up it does not collect as much oil as a turbo car would. However it is working well as I can see little trickles of oil inside the clear inlet hose (which will eventually reach the catch can). In turn, it will keep the intake manifold much cleaner.

Update as of 7 Nov. 2010 - I have now changed the clear inlet and outlet hoses to steel braided hoses, as pictured below.




Cost - 5/5:

I purchased mine for $89 AUD from Just Jap Auto's but it can be purchased for a little cheaper on ebay. The price is extremely affordable for anyone who is looking for an easy and quick mod.


Overall - 15/15:

Overall it is an affordable and simple mod you can do to your car, especially those new to the Prelude scene or any scene for that matter. Keeps the intake manifold clean and adds abit of bling to the engine bay which is a bonus in my opinion, definately a mod to consider.

Well for me very very little. It also depends on how often you drive too.

I have the same catch can except I mounted mine beside the fuse box on my 97 Prelude. I'd like it to be closer to the PCV valve but I can't mount it anywhere as the brake booster and clutch master cylinder are in the way. I'd have to create some special bracket to have it mounted in behind the intake manifold.

Anyways, the catch can is awesome. I empty mine out every oil change which is every 5000km and there isn't that much in catch can but enough to know that oil is going through the PCV and into the can instead of the intake manifold.

Awesome review!

I never had to empty it as very little oil gets collected. But once its full yes you do have to dispose of the oil.
