APR Oil Catch Tank – EA888 Gen 3 1.8TFSI / 2.0TFSI
Must be fitted with APR intake system
The APR Oil Catch Can System is designed to prevent excessive crankcase oil vapours from entering the intake system while the engine is under boost. In doing so, the system helps reduce oil pooling in the intercooler hoses, carbon buildup on intake valves, and the decrease in octane caused by oil vapours.
- Drains in seconds
No need for tools, removal/disassembly to drain the can.
- Four-stage baffling system
Excellent oil droplet capturing properties.
- Compact, two-piece billet design
Easy disassembly for recommended annual cleaning.
- Abrasion resistant Buna-N lines
Resists oil degradation, kinks and abrasion with an OEM appearance.
- OEM Norma fittings
Makes install and removal simple with an OEM appearance.
- Discrete hose routing
Hoses are routed out of sight for an attractive install.
- EA888 MQB Compatible
Fits all 1.8T/2.0T EA888 Gen 3 MQB vehicles equipped with APR’s Carbon Fibre Intake System.
- Catches oil
Oil pools in the can, not in the intercooler piping.
- Reduces carbon buildup
Fewer oil vapors entering the intake tract helps reduces carbon buildup on the back of intake valves.
- Increase performance
Helps to reduce airflow restrictions and octane robbing oil vapours.
APR’s Oil Catch Can system installs between the PCV’s outlet and the inlet to the intake system and is designed to catch unseparated oil vapour. The supplied bracket and scratch resistant gasket allow the system to be installed on the required APR Carbon Fibre Intake System. This enables compatibility with all applicable MQB platform 1.8T/2.0T engines. The supplied hoses then connect and route out of site, for a clean and attractive install.
Unlike many catch can designs on the market, the APR system utilises a track-proven four-staged baffling system. The baffles cause oil to pool at the bottom of the can, rather than the intercooler hoses. APR’s brutal track testing has proven the system works as designed, catching oil in the can and leaving the return hose clean to the touch!
Removing the oil is a cinch! No tools or can removal/disassembly are required thanks to a quick drain valve and hose conveniently located at the bottom of the can. Furthermore, servicing the can is simple, thanks to the billet two piece design.
