Conquering the Catch Can – Part 3: Final Prototype Testing

If you remember from our last post about the Titan XD catch can, we ran into some challenges with the first and second prototypes. Since then we have perfected our design, so without further delay, let’s look at our final prototype for testing.

Final Prototype

With the check engine light vanquished, our last update left us with a slightly different hurdle to climb. A buildup of condensation in the system had us a tad worried about possible freezing in the winter. Little did we know that the solution was right in the Titan’s engine bay. One of the benefits of working on … Continue Reading ››

Conquering the Catch Can – Part 2: Prototype Update

If you remember from our last post about the Titan XD catch can, we ran into some challenges with the first prototype. Since our existing catch can design did not agree with the Titan, it was back to the drawing board for our lead engineer, Dan.

Updated Design

Our standard catch can when installed on the Titan was generating a code causing the truck to go into limp mode. The cause of the code stemmed from our standard catch can being too restrictive for the Titan’s beefy Cummins engine. This is not surprising, given the 50 micron filter and smaller design … Continue Reading ››

Gotta Keep em’ Separated – Catch Can R&D, Part 1: Stock Review

The Focus RS is a big hit at the Mishimoto headquarters, and we want to make sure to protect our newest addition. If you missed Kyle Mohan testing out the Focus RS drift mode, check out our Focus RS Drift Video. Luckily one of the first projects up to bat is our direct-fit baffled oil catch can. We know that the necessity of an oil catch can is a hotly debated topic among many car communities, and the Focus RS is no exception. From previous projects and research online, we’ve learned that blow-by is a real presence in these … Continue Reading ››

Conquering the Catch Can – Catch Can R&D, Part 1: Initial Fabrication

Here at Mishimoto, we know the importance of a good catch can as far as preventative maintenance goes. For most vehicles, installing a catch can means protecting your engine from the silent monster that is blow-by. Blow by can consist of excess oil, fuel, moisture, and pure evil. Engines with direct-injection, like our good friend the Titan XD, are prone to blow-by creeping its way back into the engine through the intake, and caking debris on valves which can be very harmful to an engine over time. To read more in depth about blow-by, check out our complete write up on … Continue Reading ››

Keep Oil Out of Your Intake – Oil Catch Can R&D, Part 2: The Driver-Side

Last time we took a look at the passenger-side catch can setup for our brand-new Mustang GT. We will still be making more improvements to our original design going forward, but the main location will stay the same. Now onto our driver-side catch can development!
