    Catch Can-oil

    I have been wanting a catch can for the line that runs to the throttle body because I noticed oil in my throttle body when I had it apart cleaning it. The only problem is they want a chunk for a catch can so I came up with my own.
    Its clear so you can see the amount of oil in it and it has a built in drain at the bottom. I took a few pics-what do yall think?

    It looks like parts to an airbrush set or something, should work good if you mount it solid. Good idea, i noticed mine is all gummed up too.

    Home Depot Catch Can Special

    That "catch can" is really a gutted compressor filter - all of $11.00 bucks at Home Depot. An even better setup is to install two in series, works great!

    No its NOT! I hand made this at a machine shop in a cnc machine for the top aluminum part and made a mold and poured in the polycarbonite to make the clear "bowl". hahahahahahaha!! J/K you are correct! I havent hooked it up yet but glad to know this will work. Do you have one on your car? Or do you use 2 like you mentioned? Thanks

    Dual compressor filters

    Yeah, I run these in tandem. The first catches a bit of oil and the second nearly zero. But after a 20 min HPDE session, I empty both.
