A real Catch Can ! Do not even bother with ebay or other junky catch can.

Great quality , this is made to get the job done. Only thing that would be nicer is if they included some barbed fittings.

Crankcase breather tank

This is for an older 289 with a little too much blow-by past the rings ... and the tank really helps by reducing underhood vapors working into the passenger compartment.

I'm a Noob! What is this!? Hi, sorry to bother. What is this? I want it and have read that it doesn't allow oil into the engine but was wondering what this is exactly. I drive a high performance V6 3.8L would I benefit from this product? Thank you!


  • Hi Kbails84...These are generally used on engines with a super charger and they will keep the super chargers from drawing up oil which can get into your intake pheleum and make a gooie mess of it. I'm running a kenny bell super charger on my stang and I have 2 of these oil air filters on my engine. They do an exellent job of catching the excess oil that would other wise be sucked in to the intake passages. I don't think you would benifit from them unless your running a super charger on your car. I hope this helps you out!

Can this Moroso universal aluminum breather tank, being universal can it be installed in a 2005 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 5.4L 3 valves beside my 2004 Ford Mustang GT 2 valves?.


  • The Moroso Universal Aluminum Breather Tank (79-17 All) has only been test fitted for the 79-17 mustangs. This will be a universal fit for any trim mustang. We would not be able to gaurentee fitment on anything other then a mustang.

Question Resolved

Im completely confused. from reading the other questions. They answered that this part is mainly for engines with a supercharger to prevent extra oil from getting sucked into the supercharger. But what i would like to know is, how would this contribute to a stock 2004 V6, 3.9 liter, with a cold air intake.Would it benefit the car performance wise or no?


  • The Moroso Universal Aluminum Breather Tank is designed to prevent oil getting sucked into the intake track and into the motor. Oil will deter a fuels octane, if caught in the combustion chamber. Forced induction vehicles are tuned more aggressively, and the oil catch can would be best for those engines, as any bit of oil can caused failure easier than a non-forced induction engine. This product would be beneficial to any engine, and especially those that are aggressively tuned.

    A little large, hard to find a spot. Looks great once installed. If you are installing a catch can on your car and you have a roots type supercharger, can must be on the passenger side, found out the hard way.

    Great breather tank

    I bought this tank to catch any oil that would normally enter the motor due to blow by caused by a blower. It has 2 bungs so you can easily route both the drivers side and passenger side (PCV) valve covers to it. This will eliminate any oil getting into your motor. Breather's directly on the valve covers are nice as you don't have to run any hoses to a tank however you get an oil smell and residue around these areas. This is a great way to eliminate that possibility. The only downfall to this tank is that it doesn't come with fittings or hoses. For the price, it's relatively cheap so buying these extras wasn't a huge deal. I did have a tough time finding a 3/8 npt to 5/8 hose fitting. I did find them on Summit Racing and the brand was Gardner-Westcott...really nice fittings but pricey. Overall great tank and I'm happy to be keeping oil out of my new motor!

    really tall

    It was dificult to find a location in the engine bay for this. Ended up mounting it in the driver's side fender. Also, the moroso sticker you see on the canister is already on there and taking it off left a lot of glue residue.

    Works well

    This product has been around forever, still works as it always has. It is a bit larger than most of the new styles out there, but once installed it adds a touch of old school to your modern muscle. Bold enough to make someone take a second look, if it's subtlety you’re looking for this is not the one you want.

    Catch Can

    I bought this tank to use as a catch can on my On3 turbocharged 1989 Mustang. I redrilled and tapped the smallish 3/8 NPT fittings up to 3/4 NPT for better breathing. Works great.

    I was set back by the product due to the car having a custom tune of 560Rwhp. I had to close the baffles to get my car to run smooth just making it a standard catch can. Its all good and looks great.

    The best.

    Well, so far, so good. This can looks to be a quality product. I like knowing that the sizes of all three ports are big enough for V8"s. I don't know if I could call it "baffled", but there is a tube that goes about halfway down, then there's a stainless pot scrubber in there. Hey, it works. Also, it looked to be too big for my 2011 GT's engine compartment, but it turned out to be exactly the right size. Perfect fit.

    i used as a catch can for my 03 cobra. was bigger than i thought but found a good spot to mount it. zero oil in my intake now. doesnt come with fittings but i went to lowes and found a bunch of brass fittings that would work with it depending on what you want to do. if you have blow by i would reccomend it.

    Fits majority, not universal..Mach 1's be advised.

    I have a 2004 Mach 1, as other Mach 1 owners know, very little to no room when adding something to the engine bay. With stock Shaker intake and stock Cobra EBS controller I just couldn't find a place to stick this. Even tried a smaller top filter and shortening the bueno. Would of been awesome to have but alas, the Mach 1 sacrifice strikes again.
