BMR oil catch can question

805 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  jr16
Can anyone tell me if this is the correct configuration for this BMR oil catch can? The catch can has one inlet, one outlet, and one drain. I currently have it setup like this:
Valley > Inlet of catch can,
Snout > Outlet of catch can.
Also, what are your thoughts about a 2nd catch can for the other side?
Thanks in advance 馃檹馃徎

I personally don't have this kit, however, as long as you have the crankcase/valley (dirty) side going into the inlet of the catch can and the outlet going to the snout, you should be good to go!

As far as the other side of the engine, I never found any oil residue in the other tubing when investigating. Most, if not all of the oil mist founding in the lid/intake tract is going to be from the valley to snout. Although, I am still stock pulley and boost, so I can only imagine with more boost, more crankcase pressure, more blowby, and much more abuse, that second catch can may be wanted.

Well, I stand corrected on this... I popped my lid open this weekend to take the brick out for replacement, since it developed a small pinhole leak, and it appears that other catch can will be needed. Quite a bit of oil residue tracing from the intake/throttle.

Just ordered a Radium CCV Catch Can to catch this now. Just hoping my little water leak didn't do more damage than thought and gifted me with some ring damage...

Had DMS work on my car recently, new catch can among the work. They capped my CAI and routed things better. No more pcv dumping into the throttle. Only downside is I have to recalibrate my maf. Done most of the corrections, but lol I should have just moved everything 2 cells to the right.

Interestingly... I have been running Radiums PCV catch can with amazing results, but during disassembly for cam and ported head upgrade recently, I too noted some very light oil residue from the CCV system. So... here I am just starting to plumb the Radium CCV can! I love their products!

so far with a blower engine im yet to see a catch that will stop all the oil vapor getting thru into the manifold especially if vacuum is used, (maby the really expensive ones do) hose size plays a decent roll also as alot of air speed drags oil thru with it so if u slow that down with bigger hose it can draw more air by volume with less airspeed so less oil thru gets taken on the ride with it and slowly working its way thru the catch and into the manifold

Thanks for the pics and info! Glad to hear the Radium products are quality, as it's my first time with them. Hopefully works as good as it looks haha.
