Oil Catch Can

Post by RXFEVER »

Hi Brian,

Is there an advantage in installing an oil catch can to the normal aspirated rotary engine? I was thinking in buy and install one to my 2004 RX8 but I'm not sure is this will be a cost effective move and/or it will help to improved in a measured amount the aspiration of clean air through the intake manifold.

If the installation is a good improvement, should both oil vent hoses will be re-routed to the oil catch can? 8) Thanks

No point in the catch can....at least until you add Turbo or supercharger.
