EVO VIII / IX CATCH CAN KIT DETAILS
Radium Engineering offers several completely independent oil catch can kits for the Evo VIII / IX that are sold individually or together using the menu above. All kits work with the OEM strut bar. The first type do NOT vent to atmosphere (VTA), thus are emissions and track legal. Closed loop systems route clean filtered air back in through the engine to be burned and to promote negative crankcase pressure for optimal performance. Furthermore, closed systems prevent unwanted oil vapors into the cabin. The Crankcase VTA kit does not recirculate crankcase gasses back through the engine and is intended for race vehicles dealing with a large amount of blow-by gasses.
The PCV Catch Can Kit installs immediately underneath the RH strut tower and plumbs in-line with the PCV hose. When the intake manifold pressure is close to or greater than atmospheric pressure, the PCV "check" valve closes and, thus, this hose experiences no flow. Conversely, the PCV hose will experience "metered" vacuum when the engine is idling, steady state cruising, and decelerating. This would normally draw unwanted crankcase vapor, unspent fuel, and oil sludge into the intake manifold immediately after a high load run. Note: Because the Radium catch cans are pressure sealed, they are great for boosted applications as well so connecting to the intake manifold is permitted and will withstand any boost level. Contents of kit 20-0116 are shown below:

The PCV kit shown above is a closed system that requires a vacuum signal from the intake manifold to open the PCV valve.
The Crankcase Catch Can Kit installs immediately underneath the LH strut tower and plumbs in-line with the crankcase vent hose. This is the hose that connects from the port on the valve cover to the turbo air intake pipe. During low engine loads, this hose experiences atmospheric pressure, but when the engine is at high load (WOT), this hose will experience vacuum and would normally be drawing unwanted crankcase vapors, unspent fuel, and oil sludge into the air filter intake pipe, turbocharger compressor, etc. For instance. if you are finding oil accumulation stuck in the intercooler, this catch can is a necessity as oil will lower the thermal efficiency properties of the heat exchange process. Below is a picture of the crankcase vent catch can kit with the strut bar in place.
 
The Vent-To-Atmosphere Catch Can Kit is an open system used for high flowing, high horsepower applications. The closed system options listed above are adequate for most vehicles, however, some loosely built race engines operate with a large amount of boost pressure and the OEM hoses can become too restrictive from excessive blow by.
This VTA kit is intended to be used by itself as the only crankcase vent point. It replaces the stock PCV hose and PCV valve with a -10AN fitting and 5/8" ID hose and allows the gasses to vent through the catch can to the atmosphere. This kit installs on the LH strut tower.
Because this kit mounts the catch can behind the battery, there is a chance that there might not be enough room for the included breather filter if a large battery is used.

NOTE: The OEM valve cover is magnesium and cannot not be welded. Instead, the included -10AN male press-in fitting replaces the large PCV valve bushing.
