Oil Catch Can
Oil Catch Can
Black is currently sold out, but more are being made. Any orders for the Wrinkle Black option will ship as soon as the new inventory arrives. (I’ll leave these on sale until then.)
If you’re in the UK or EU, our distributor there is Aston Installations and they can probably serve you faster and at a lower cost.
This oil catch can kit helps prevent oil vapor from entering your intake manifold, keeping your intake air cleaner and reducing the risk of carbon buildup from burned oil.
Does it work? YES. See the pic with the measuring cup full of oil? Had it not been for my catch can, that oil would have gone into my intake manifold!
Fits all V8 Vantages, including 4.3L, 4.7L, V8VS, and V8VGT. Does NOT fit V12 cars.
The catch can is internally baffled and made from stainless steel and aluminum. The bracket is made of aluminum and mounts into OEM bolt locations. The catch can and brackets are made in the USA. The hose is rated to handle fuel, oil, and heat. The quick-fit connectors are the OEM connectors and come direct from Aston Martin.
For those of us that keep tabs on weight, this kit adds only 2.5 lbs to the car.
Installation is quick and easy, taking only about 10 minutes. Nothing on the car is damaged or permanently altered. The can must be manually drained - frequency depends on how often the car is driven, but typically only needs to be done once or twice per year. The entire draining process takes less than 10 minutes. In fact, here's a video showing how to do it:
