|LS1/LS2/LS6 Billet Aluminum PCV Catch Can
RPMSpeed is proud to introduce the new RPMSpeed PCV Catch Can.
A PCV catch can is a good way to keep oil from being blown back into your intake manifold. The factory setup is just a loop of tubing to blow the oil into the intake. A catch can will catch this oil.
Oil contamination derives from the PCV common on most LS1's where vacuum is pulled on the crankcase by the intake or in some cases the throttle body. This contamination occurs when oil vapors exit the crankcase via the PCV valve, enter the intake tract, and create adverse effects such as carbon build-up on valves, pistons, and plugs, as well as cause harmful detonation. Detonation in many cases causes the ECM/PCM to retard timing, thus creating a reduction in horsepower. Power adders such as turbos, blowers, or nitrous can benefit greatly due to the removal of oil contamination in the combustion process. Poor emissions could also be traced back to high levels of oil residue being burned in the combustion process. By removing this oil, a clean burning engine could help the environment as well as improving the performance of a vehicle.
This billet aluminum catch can is an excellent solution because it not only fits well, but it looks good while doing the job! It has brackets installed to directly bolt-up to an LSX cylinder head, making for a clean installation.
Comes in the following available colors: Red, Silver, Black and Blue. Make your selection below.
