An oil catch can is essential on a performance vehicle to protect the engine from elevated levels of crankcase blow-by accumulated from aggressive driving. Excess oil saturated air circulating back into the air intake stream can lead to degraded performance. Unlike many catch cans on the market, this catch can features an integrated oil separator that accelerates oil condensation. This stainless steel filter media is cleanable and reusable. Read all about the functionality of Radium's popular catch cans here:
The Radium dual catch can system is essentially two single catch cans mounted to a one-piece universal mounting bracket as shown here. A dual catch can kit can also be accomplished by purchasing two Universal Single Catch Cans.

Open PCV System
This option is used to convert a modern closed PCV system to an open PCV system. Radium Engineering does not necessarily condone an open PCV system, however, there are many applications that demand this setup.
Open PCV System Disadvantages: Without an intake return for the PCV system, the crankcase will not measure any amount of negative pressure that can be, argueably, beneficial for the piston rings. Over time, a light mist of oil vapor will accumulate around the engine bay near the crankcase breather. An open PCV system is not smog legal and will not pass a visual emissions check.
Open PCV System Advantages: Completely eliminates any chance of oil vapor returning into the intake air stream and collecting in idle air control valves, intercoolers, etc. Required for specific applications. For example, a race car using a turbocharger system without a compressor inlet pipe.
