The CorkSport Oil Catch Can kit prevents fuel, oil, and water vapors from entering your engine. While the SkyActiv engines have a factory air/oil separator before the PCV, it does a poor job at preventing contaminants from entering your intake manifold, gumming up your intake valves, and causing poor combustion. If you want to keep the SkyActiv 2.5T in your Mazda 6, CX5, and CX9 healthy read on for full details.
The CorkSport Oil Catch Can receives input from the PCV valve and the valve cover breather. These two sources typically send oil, fuel, and water vapors from inside your engine’s crankcase back into the combustion chamber, causing less than optimal combustion and over time, dirty intake valves. The CS OCC catches these vapors to keep your engine clean and healthy.
The CS OCC is a dual chamber design that uses a baffle to separate the inlet and outlet ports. The inlet is tangent to the inside edge of the OCC. This promotes spinning/swirling of the incoming vapors and contaminants, causing them to condense on the walls of the OCC and settle to the bottom for drainage. The clean air then travels through the center of the baffle and out of the catch can.
Oil catch cans are especially important on turbocharged and/or direct injected vehicles to ensure long term engine health, and even more so if your vehicle is modified. While there is a factory air/oil separator, it does not function that well in our experience. Check out all the contaminants our OCC caught on our Mazda 6 2.5T during the first 500 miles or so after install. Typically, all of this would have entered your engine which over time adversely affects engine health.
The CorkSport OCC kit was designed specifically to fit the vehicles equipped with the SkyActiv 2.5T. Not only was the stainless bracket designed specifically for this Mazda chassis, it is in a location chosen to be easy to access and empty during an oil change. Plus, the location in front of the driver’s side wheel ensures short routing for all OCC lines. This means an easier install and less distance for contaminants to travel before being trapped in the OCC.
The CS oil catch can body, dipstick, and ports are precision machined out of 6061-T6 billet aluminum. Each is then anodized for corrosion resistance and for a classy look. The supplied mounting bracket is laser cut and precision formed 304 stainless steel; again for superior corrosion resistance. Finally, the supplied OCC hoses are made from reinforced silicone for great resistance to heat, oil, fuel, and the elements so your catch can setup lasts as long as your 2.5T!
