Got Trucks, Got Jeeps (VOL 2.) – Catch Can R&D Part 2: Gunk In The System

Our engineering department has made some great strides in completing this catch can design as they have reached the final R&D stages. Overall strength and can rigidity were primary design goals for the kit, as we are aware of the rough and tough off-road lives many of these Wranglers live. We want to be sure that once you install this can on your car, it will stay put, no matter what rigorous environment you take your JK Wrangler through. Bracketry starts with precise design and component fabrication. Our engineers had to be sure that our bracket would effortlessly hold our 2oz … Continue Reading ››

Got Trucks, Got Jeeps (VOL. 1) – Catch Can R&D Part 1: The 3.8L Stock System

Do you know the origin of the term Jeep? Some say that during WWII, these vehicles were referred to as General Purpose vehicles, and soldiers began slurring the acronym, G.P., into Jeep, hence its name today (there’s a similar story behind the term Humvee). Others say that the name was derived from the popular cartoon character, Eugene the Jeep, from when the Popeye show aired back in the 1940’s. Eugene the Jeep was a “go anywhere, do anything” type character, and interestingly enough, the US government had a contract sent out to several automotive manufacturers requesting a vehicle to replace … Continue Reading ››

Blow-By Verified – Oil Catch Can R&D, Part 1: That’s…A Lot of Oil

What do carbon-deposit caked valves, decreased fuel economy, oily intake tracts and inefficient combustion all have in common? The resulting effects of engine oil blow-by. During combustion, the top side of the piston forces combusted gasses, with remnants of fuel and oil past the piston rings, and into the crankcase. This would force the crankcase to become pressurized without some sort of relief, so the content of what enters the crankcase exits the system through a positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system and gets recycled through the engine via the intake tract. _MG_4681rContinue Reading ››
