Vibrant Performance Catch Can - 12696/12697 Installation Instructions
Setup a location in a fender well or on the firewall where you can utilize the stainless bracket that is incorporated in the catch can design. The bracket can be clocked to any position if needed to suit your ideal location with in the engine bay. If you are venting the catch can from the valve cover try to keep the lines entering the catch can level with or just below the valve cover. This will help the catch can accumulate the most fume or oil particle over time. It is not recommended you mount the Catch Can directly to the engine.
There is minimal upkeep to this design of the catch can, it has a small dipstick to advise you of the level on the inside and it will not corrode while being anodized. To empty the catch can you can drain the contents out from the bottom, or remove from the engine bay if the drain is not easily accessible.
If severe build up or debris is clogging the baffle, remove it and clean with brake cleaner.
The fittings provided on our Catch Can are 4x -10AN male, this will suit ample flow from the engine for many performance applications. A recirculating catch can system generally needs a pressure and vacuum source. Pressure created from the crank case can be vented from the valve cover or upper half of the crank case. The vacuum source can be taken downstream of the MAF sensor before turbo inlet on a charged system or up-stream of the throttle body on a NA engine, but downstream again of the MAF. It is also possible to run a vacuum source from a downpipe or the intake manifold, but a check valve may be required to stabilize the tune and separate the fume flow from the engine and Catch Can. Accessing and connecting these areas successfully will require the use of some
