    Hey, guys, Stephanie with, here with the Mishimoto Oil Catch Can for all Mustangs from 1979 all the way up to 2016. This particular Mishimoto Oil Catch Can is gonna be a great option for someone looking for a universal catch can at the most affordable price to provide some protection for their engine. An oil catch can is a great way to protect an engine. It's a simple mod that does some good for all applications. You don't need to have a forced induction set up to be able to utilize a catch can. They do some good for completely stock motors as well. A catch can is a very functional piece that has a number of benefits to it. In order to understand why you need a catch can, even for an NA build, we need to look at the process of an internal combustion engine for a second. So the ignition of the air and fuel mixture inside the combustion chamber is ignited and it forces the piston down, yet a small amount of mixture that leaks past the piston rings and into the crank case. This is known as blow by. And in that blow by, there's an oil mist. The blow by and the oil mist will settle the intake over time and they're going to form a gunky build up. Now, technically speaking, there can also sometimes be condensation along with the oil mist and the blow by. And if we let all this hang out, worst case, the stuff can make it into the oil inside the crank case. This is not a good thing and it's considered oil contamination and delusion. And this is where the oil separating catch can comes into place. It's gonna push these gases, the blow by and the oil mist and the condensation, through a baffle system that's gonna trap the oil and separate it from the other gases. The gases are gonna be allowed to continue through the intake so that they can be burned off, and the oil will stay in the catch can so it doesn't move on and cause issues for the engine. So like I mentioned before, this is a universal catch can. It's not a direct bolt on or a direct fit can, so you can mount it anywhere it best suits your build, within limits of course. This can's made from aluminum and it has a nice finish, so it's gonna look good under the hood. They also make a carbon fiber version of this can as well, if you think you might like that one better. Now, this can also has this fill indicator on the side, which will let you know when you need to empty the can, and it has a 16-ounce capacity. So, 16 ounces is a lot, but you'll notice that the better catch cans actually catch a lot of oil. So the larger capacity of this can means that you won't have to be emptying this all the time. You can go a little bit longer in between servicing, if you will. The other thing I wanted to mention about this is that it does come with a mounting bracket and hardware, four clamps, two valves, and one drain plug, all of which are pre-tefloned for you, and a hose as well. I would just make sure to position the can to be in an easily accessible area so when you do need to empty the can, it isn't a fight. One thing I will say about catch cans in general, is to be wary. You want to make sure that you're getting a good one that will trap as much oil as possible. Some catch cans are just an empty container with a few ports, but these kinds are not going to be able to condense the oil vapor and trap as much oil as possible. You want to make sure that the catch can has an internal baffle and collection system for the best possible results. As far as price, you're looking at spending under $100 for this catch can from Mishimoto, which makes it the most affordable catch can. The carbon fiber version does cost a little bit more and you can always go with an oil separator as well, which still has the same function, but it is a direct fit piece that works in line with the PCV valve. So the install here is really pretty easy. You're looking at spending about an hour's time, and this is going to be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Since this is a universal catch can, you have a little bit of room to play around with how you want to install this. You do need to get to your PCV valve and then determine the best location to mount the can. Before you mount the can, I would just suggest having all of your fittings into place so that the can's ready to bolt right out. Then it's just a matter of running your hoses. You connect one length of hose to the PCV fitting on your cold air intake and run it to the catch can. The other hose will need to be ran to the PCV valve itself. And if there's any extra hose left over, you can always cut that off of course. Wrapping things up here, the Mishimoto Universal Oil Catch Can is a fast and easy way to protect your motor from blow by. It's gonna work for both NA and forced induction cars. It's made from aluminum and it has a 16-ounce capacity. As always, you can check it out more online right here at

    Reduces Engine Sludge. A catch can helps reduce power robbing engine sludge by diverting "blow-by" (a combination of exhaust gases and oil) into a outside container "catch can" where the contaminated oil is separated from the exhaust gases before they are recycled back into the intake system to be re-burned, thus preventing the used oil from re-enter the system to gum up your engine.

    High Quality Materials. This Mishimoto Oil Catch Can is made from high quality aluminum and is completed in a black finish.

    Application. This Mishimoto Black Oil Catch Can has a unique universal design making it perfect for use in any supercharged, turbocharged, or naturally aspirated Mustang to help your engine run cleaner.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Is there any benefit to having this on the fox body Mustang? I’m not doing anything crazy. The only performance mods I have are cold air intake and exhaust. I’m not adding forced induction.

        • The Mishimoto Oil Catch Can will work well for cars with excessive blow by caused by wear, as well as working well on boosted applications.

        Helpful (1)

        If I plug my PCV system can I still use this catch can and route it from the valve cover to the can and from the can to the supercharger powerpipe?

        • With the Mishimoto Oil Catch Can you will want to attach it to your PCV system, to ensure it will still work as intended. Instead of the PCV system running directly into the intake track, just install the catch can between the PCV and the intake without doing away with the PCV.

        I'm going to be adding an m112 supercharger onto my s197 v6 in the near future. Will the hoses be able to reach the back of the engine bay where the new intake will be located? Or will I have to buy new hoses?

        • When it comes to the Mishimoto Oil Catch Can I cannot say for sure if it will have enough hose. This is a universal kit that is designed to work on all year ranges. This kit may need to be modified for your application.

        Is there a difference between a catch can and an oil separator or are they the same thing? What is the best for super charged applications? Can I use one for both sides or do I need to purchase two?

        • They will essentially be the same thing as they both help reduce engine sludge. In regards to which side is better, we recommend the passenger side, but you can go install one on each side. Please note they will be labeled driver and passenger side.

            Literally an empty can

            For $100 you get to be the proud owner of an oil catch can with no baffle or filter. You can mount this empty can in your engine bay and drool over this totally non functional cylinder with Mishimoto embossed on the top.

            Empty can

            I am not sure if i misunderstood the item details but the QandA section said that this item does have baffles/filters inside. This item in fact is an empty can and i am glad i looked inside before i installed. I called Mishimoto and they told me that this item (MMOCC-RB) does not come with baffles/filters and they recommended that you open it and put in steel wool as a filter. The American Muscle staff was very helpful in getting this issue resolved.

            It is beautiful an good sized.

            It is large and I assume that is why it doesn't have baffles in it. Right now I am engineering how to fit it. I wish I had a more agile drill. I have the fittings and more hose now and will get it done. I expect it to work fine and keep oil out of the intake plenum of my cobalt which actually has no PCV valve and just routes blowby from valve cover right into the intake system. Very cute GM. It doesn't look good and probably isn't.

            • Response from AmericanMuscle

              This Mishimoto Oil Catch Can is not baffled so it will not capture all of the blow by vapor, however, since the inlet and outlet are not horizontally mounted, they will help filter most of the contaminants.
