We use them at work in some of the machines we manufacture. I got this one out of the junk pile after cleaning out the warehouse of parts we no longer use. Unfortunately it doesn't have a manufacturer brand on it. Just Made in USA. I'll ask around to see if I can find the manufacturer.

...?!

For some reason my oil catchcan is not catching any oil. I guess that's a good thing then haha. The direction of airflow from the valve cover to the throttlebody and the catchcan itself is specific so I know its installed correctly. The hose is 3/8" so its plenty large enough to pass 5W20, I guess as long as the crankcase is being vented i'll remain sound...any feedback. Will post pic soon I need to find a usb cable

Any can catch can should theoretically collect blow-by and reduce the gasses from vapor to liquid.

Ensure that the foam inner-plug has been removed, a secure seal is present on all connections (including the jar's twist top), and that the under-hood temps aren't too high. The vapor has to cool in order to condense.

My engine is not equiped with a pcv valve, it's mearly a pcv hose from valve cover to valve body. Since install i've already hit around 1,000 miles.

The only internal pieces in the compressor air-line filter was a foam element filter which was removed, all ands of my pcv hoses are snug. There is no way my underhood temperature will in any be cool, I live in south Texas where average daily high temp. is @ around 105 degrees F...feedback Thnx for the replys.

the catch can goes inline with the PCV line, so yes, it can be done on the CRX DX with the 1.5L D15B2 Engine.

If you guys are so concerned about sludge build up on top of the pistons/rings and the back sides of the valves, you can do periodic MMO/Sea Foam piston soaks as well as more frequent treatments of MMO/Sea Foam/Distilled Water in the intake.

Water works especially nicely...the expanding steam blasts the living daylights out of any buildup. The first time I squirted water into my intake, I had a noticably smoother idle afterwards. Only do this with a warm engine with high RPM's in a controlled fashion. I have rigged up my car so that I can do it while driving, so the fact the car is in gear and moving means the risk of hydrolock is almost nil.
