Install Oil Catch can

Hey guys, installed the oil catch can today. It was very simple and took literally 6 minutes.
First off what you will need:

Flat head screw driver
Socket wrench with 10mm socket
pair of pliers (may not need)
oil catch can (obviously) lol
custom mounting bracket, or equipment that came with yours.

you can mount however you want to this is just a quick and easy mount while you wait to do what you want to do

What this does: - this prevents oil vapors from finding their way into you intake manifold. If you have ever had your tb off, you will notice it may have accumulated some oil sludge on the back of the butterfly valve. Doing this helps prolong engine life.

So here we go, first take off your manifold cover... Just use your 10mm socket, and/or a phillips screwdriver. Should look like this once done.


Next, you'll want to remove the black hose connecting the intake manifold to the valve cover. I used pliers because mine was seized up a bit.


After that, go ahead and mount your oil catch can. I originally mounted using zip ties, and didn't go very well. I then decided to be innovative. I made an L bracket and mounted it with a bolt that was initially used to hold on my stock air box. I used two washer, a lock washer, and a nut underneath to get it nice and snug.


I then welded on two hose clamps big enough toe fit around the bracket and the oil catch can. I then used this to mount the can.


Next you will connect your hoses. You have three different options. You can connect them where your PCV hose connected (from your valve cover to your intake manifold). See pics below.



You can connect them to your vacuum hose connecting your valve cover to your air intake. This is less beneficial compared to the previous option.

Or you can use a "Y" coupler, and connect them to both hoses, which would be the most beneficial.
Note: IT DOES NOT MATTER WHICH HOSE CONNECTS TO WHICH, AS LONG AS THEY ARE BOTH CONNECTED IT IS OKAY.

At the time being I have connected mine only to the vacuum hose between the CAI and the valve cover. I plan to soon run a "Y" and connect to both.

The end result should look like this




There you go guys!

I got it used, so I did use everything that came with it :/ but I have a future idea for mounting it, I just need to get to autozone. Can you get a closer pick to show me what you are talking about tho?

Thank you man! I'm pretty sure from what I can see in your pic, that how you mounted is how I'm wanting to mount mine.

Sounds good man. I'm in the midst of showing another way to "mount" the can too, so I think it'll be good for other members.

here is a closer pic. mine had a plate welded to the back of it. i used metal zip ties through both holes on the plate to hold it in place onto the ac line. then another metal locking strap to hold the base. so unless my ac line falls off i will not have a disaster lol

Everyone feel free to post how you guys mounted your oil catch cans. There are so many ways and possibilities of how and where you can. Always great to have a bunch of opinions.

I placd mine on the shroud of the electrical box where the oem air box used to be. I used short bolts so to prevent any other potential electrical problems with this install. The only thing that I had to get was longer hose. Pictures to follow.

Where did you mount the bracket? Ive been looking to place mine there too but unsure of what bolt to use... Did you also use an L bracket?

I used to believe that. Long story short: just did a study, blew oily vapours through several different size and configuration of catch cans made from from plastic jars with lids. Some had plain steel wool type baffle, other had complex labyrinth, one had nothng in it, just an empty can with a hose in and a hose out. Amazingly, the empty can with no baffles performed as well as the others for oil accumulation in the bottom of the can. It appears oily air just needs some "space" to expand and the oil drops out of the air by itself.

To OP or anyone else with a catch can on a 4g69: have you accumulated much oil? Any pics?
