Radium PCV & Crank Case Dual
Oil Catch Can for 2012+ Scion
FR-S/Subaru BRZ [ZN6/ZC6]
An oil catch can is essential on a performance vehicle to protect the
engine from elevated levels of crankcase blow-by accumulated from
aggressive driving. Excess oil saturated air circulating back into the
air intake stream can lead to degraded performance.
- Effectively raises the octane and
increased engine performance from cleaner inlet air
- Prevents oil buildup in the intake or
intercooler system walls, throttle body, intake manifold,
- Excessive oil collection can be an
indicator of a damaged engine.
- Lowers hydrocarbon emissions
- 6fl Oz Capacity
- Height (without fittings): 5 inches
- Outside Diameter: 2.45 inches
- Radium billet oil catch can with
integrated condenser and dipstick
- Radium laser cut powder coated "86"
specific mounting bracket
- Anodized aluminum -8AN hose ends and
- Enough 1/2" PCV rubber hose to mate to
- Barb hose adapter
- Stainless steel mounting hardware
These two oil catch can kits are completely
independent of each other and are sold individually or together. They 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.
FR-S / BRZ
/ 86 MOUNTING LOCATION
Radium engineers have strategically located the catch cans for
compatibility with both Right
Hand Drive (RHD) and Left
Hand Drive (LHD) "86"
model variations. Some brake clearancing is necessary on RHD
installations. Both of these kits are also compatible
with all current aftermarket forced induction kits. Mounting
is done using factory holes. No cutting, drilling or permanent
modification to the vehicle is required.
mounts on the left side of the engine bay.
This catch can runs inline with the 1/2" breather port. At low loads it
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. If the engine is turbocharged or supercharged and 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.
mounts on the right side of the engine bay.
This catch can runs inline with the 3/8" PCV (positive crankcase
ventilation) valve. 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.
Gasses enter the catch can through the top port
and immediately pass through a stack of stainless steel
condenser media. This provides surface area for the hot oil
vapor to cool and condense. This creates a phase change within
the oil makeup converting it from a vapor to a liquid. All of
the liquid oil collects and drips down to the bottom of the
canister. Remaining gasses continue through the catch can
chamber where they slow down allowing time for more oil vapor to
condense on the interior surface walls. Then "clean" gasses exit
through the front port and back into the engine's intake stream.
