You see loads of cars running catchcans… Some are nice and stealth.. And just do the job they were intended where some are really a standout in the engine bay, literally screaming for attention.
For me this had two issues: I wanted to put one in each of my cars buy for both I wanted them to be a reasonable price and I also wanted to them to look factory, if you havnt noticed I have a flavour that’s got factory issue written all over it!
I won’t go on and on so lets get down to the important parts. The can piece itself is a power steering reservoir from a BMW 5 series I found at the Wreckers. Its nice to look at, it’s well made and it seals. It’s a simple project with the baffle piece going under the lid and is from the supermarket cleaning section – it’s just a steel wool sponge thing. It was a dollar!!
Now in regards to the hose i used some transmission cooler hose in two sizes to make it all fit up. There really is nothing more to it! I chose a nice area and mounted it in the engine bay and cabled the lines together to keep it nice and neat. I reckon this looks really subtle and gets the job well and truly done for a fraction of the price.
