Can I check what size hose others have been using for their catch cans and where they got theirs from? I think most cans have a 25mm inlet/outlet, but what size is the hose coming out of the crankcase? I've read 13mm and 16mm now. Do you use heat shrink, a clamp or some kind of reducer?

I am looking at something similar. Terrain Tamer do one similar to this one i think. $300 worth though. Who/where did this one come from?

suits engines under 2.0L?? i wonder why that ends up being max capacity? Good price and looks the same as Terrain Tamer. Are you concerned about capacity or do you think it relates ti capacity of drain pipe?

That link was to the 100.

I wonder if this 200 model is more suitable for the Triton's 2.4L (it doesn't seem to indicate engine size). This is just a guess ... i am only just learning about all this stuff.

Just curious if anyone has actual first hand (but obviously, off-the-record) commentary from an official Mitsubishi mechanic that these things are necessary? Forgive me if that's a stupid question ... I'm in the research stages of getting a new Triton during EOFY sales, and learning as much as I can about them.

I've read all the stories of blocked/gunked up intake manifolds, and the theories of how these catch cans and/or EGR blanks prevent it. I guess I'm just wondering why it's not more commonly reported (the blocked/gunked up intakes)? As in, is there a possibility all the reported cases are actually something else ... some other problem somewhere else that presents with these symptoms? You know ... the same way that eating too much beetroot can present the same symptoms as a serious bowel issue.

The other thought I had is whether anyone's thought of using one of these to inspect their intake manifold:

No I'm not worried about .4 of a ltr are you? ;) If you have any doubt you can go the 200 but Im happy with this one.

Hi all

I have the SPV EGR electrical mod and it sounds like a catch can is still a good idea to stop the oil vapor.

The provent has a paper filter, what sort of replacement frequency should I expect? How do you tell when it needs to be replaced?

Thanks
Dane

I had a blanking plate for a short time then installed SPV electrickery and since had the 75,000 service completed, while they were doing the valves I asked if they could take some photo's of the manifolds and there was some slight carb build up so I installed a PROvent 200 so I know that it is right.

Oil Catch Can

Postby Scraper on Sun Feb 04, 2018 10:16 pm

Hi All
I have own my 2012/13 Triton GLX-R since Demo.
It has not been plain sailing , I had a complete engine rebuild at 90,000 K'S.
It took me 5 months to get the dealer to do a complete test....any how as a retired bloke I am not able to update . So . Now it is out of warrenty , I am thinking of fitting a Oil catch Can , for a little insurance against clocking up inlets. Would like your thoughts. I did see that FREIGHTTRAIN has one fitted
Cheers :mrgreen:

I think it's a great idea and a great insurance policy, I know some members on here have the provent style catch can. I ended up going for a HPD unit at around 34,000km car now has 62,000 and no issues. I have a 2013 MN. Looking at possibly changing to a prevent in the future just for the ease of emptying but we'll see. Also need to remove the intercooler later on and give her a bath in Kero. But that's later on.

I thought the can needed to be relatively cool for the oil to condense efficiently?
:?


On my ML the can was my first mod. I had it on for 5 years and cleaned it regularly, it worked great catching oil soot and condensate. I mounted mine on the fuel filter side with long 16mm fuel hoses with copper reducers and hose clamps. I had the inlet slightly up hill all the way from the can and also uphill for the return line so the mist would always drain back to the can. I was a bit wary about mounting it near the turbo and the hottest part of the engine bay, it is much cooler over where the battery and filters are and the condensing is what you want the can to achieve so the cooler the better. I ran the drain hose from a tap under the can and tied the outlet to the chassis rail out of the way and make draining a breeze.The Provent has 2 pressure release valves in case you don't clean it and is a closed system so is legal...
