    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.

    Quality Materials. This Mishimoto Carbon Fiber Oil Catch Can comes with aluminum caps on both the top and bottom of the can, while the can itself is made of 100% Carbon Fiber.

    Application. This Mishimoto Carbon Fiber 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.

        Would you recommend one of these on both valve covers or just the driver side? I have a naturally aspirated 4.6L with FRPP Intake manifold, just wondering if you need a can on both valve trains or just the one side.

        • For NA, I would just recommend one side; driver's side.

        what is the main purpose of an oil catch can? Where does it get plumd to? why isnt one installed at the factory?

        • The Mishimoto Oil Catch Can will get plumbed into the PCV system to catch any oil that comes through before the air returns to the intake tract. OEM manufacturers tend not to install catch cans or oil separators as there is a minimal benefit on stock type daily drivers. Performance applications that see WOT more often will see more oil make it through, making this a good upgrade.

            Waste of money

            You might aswell cut two holes in a beer can and shove the valve cover hose in one side and the intake hose in the other. You basically pay for a nice looking under hood ornament. Has nothing separating the incoming air from the outgoing. My mustang gt is NA and the straw on the side of the can does not register oil, even after 6 months of hard driving. No its not leaking out from drain plug.

            Beautiful, but, what's with the drain plug?

            I love the look of this can - but was surprised to find the drain plug didn't fit - as in it is a smaller size than the hole - yes, might hold when tightened, but only for a time or two - it is just plain the wrong size.

            This is advertised fasly in the video. When received many months after ordering it’s just an open can inside. No filter as described. I would not buy this product it’s so cheap. I had to select a star ⭐️ for review, it’s a big ZERO.

            almost forgot. put some lube on the intake where the hose goes so you can get it off,. the clean rubber hose sticks to the plastic intake pretty well and you don't want to snap that piece off. also so you can get it off in the future hopefully with out putting a slice in the hose with a razor blade

            for a hundred bucks i was expecting to see some oil seperation pad in there for the vaporized oil to stick to and drip to the bottom of the can (stuff usually looks like stainless steel brillo pad). it's an empty can with the inlet and outlet right next to eachother with no internal seperation. i hope it works. install was a snap. get some 19/32 crank case vent hose(15.1mm) about 3.5 feet worth. you'll use a full 3 feet. I had a hard time finding stainless steel harware. if you have a kenworth or peterbilt dealership near by they usually have that stuff. you'll nee some 1/4 hardware to mount the bracket.

            The can looks great and has a magnetic drain plug. The hose that came with it looks ok at first but will show the oil that is caught and starts to warp from the heat. Plan on getting a better hose, but it is by far the best looking catch can available.
