WHY FIT AN OIL CATCH TANK KIT TO YOUR DIESEL?
Because of the high compression of a diesel engine ( 18:1 as to 9:1 in a petrol engine) the pressure inside the engine block is much higher. This in turn produces a lot more hot oily fumes which must exit via the engine breather hose. Normally, for emissions the breather connects to the air intake where the fumes are mixed with the incoming air. Your turbo then sucks all this hot oily mix back into the engine. It will then coat all your intercooler, pipework and inlet manifold with sticky oily gunge (see pic). After a while this tar like grunge clogs up your intake pipework affecting the engines ability to breathe at 100%. See PIC.
In the photos is a picture of the inside of my inlet manifold after 235k miles, i have had a catch tank and egr blank fitted for nearly 200k of that mileage…the condition speaks for itself.
The catch tank does just that, it condenses the hot oily fumes which collects inside the tank, and then releases the remaining air to vent to atmosphere . This means the air going into the the engine is clean and cold, which if you have our CP1 induction kit fitted makes sense..
WHY BUY OUR CATCH TANK KIT?
Unlike petrol engines diesels produce much more pressure inside the engine block. This is why the breather on your tdci/hdi is 25mm wide. A common mistake is to fit a general “Ebay” catch tank with 10 or 15mm outlets. Reducing the breather from 25mm to 15mm is a big mistake! You are effectively choking the engine, as the pressure can’t escape through the restrictive breather the block pressure finds other ways to escape. Consequently, very quickly your engine will start leaking oil from places you didn’t know existed.
Our catch tank kit is the only kit available that has 25mm outlets and pipework, so your engine continues to breathe as it should.
****NOTE 1.4 TDCI fiesta requires plastic ribbed air feed tube to be removed in order to fit.***
