It's a generic garbage Chinese catch can that you can by on Ebay for $20.

POS site glass /tubing will develop a leak.
Get this one

Oh wow ok, thanks for the advice. How difficult is the install on it (if you've installed this particular one before)?

You will need to get hoses from auto parts store, best to use hoses rated for fuel (they don't get soft over time like others do)

Adding a catch can is really part of a maintenance program for GDI engines. Port injection the fuel washes over the intake valves, keeping them fairly clean, while Direct injection, the fuel injected directly into cylinder so fuel never touches backside of valves. The carbon buildup from the PCV dumping back into intake bakes on the valves and robs your engine of power eventually. The catch can doesn't eliminate all of it, but helps slow it down some. bk2 Gennies are GDI, bk1 are not, and therefore not as critical.

I got my catch can from Amazon for 25 dollars. It’s from pdq and honestly is working perfect for me. Before I had a weapons r catch can I got from gctuner and oh man I wasted 75 dollars on some trash. No filter, no nothing. Just literally a hollow can. Get good heater hoses and a bendable bracket you can find at Home Depot for 2 dollars, Teflon tape for the threads on the inlet/outlet. Lastly I would measure out how much 1/2 inch heater hose you need. No need for 3/8 size since I just used this pipe adapter that goes from a 3/8-1/2 that connects to the line underneath your throttle body that works perfectly. I can send a video of that if you want.

I didn’t even see this comment until today but that sounds like a good solution. If it’s not too late a video would definitely be appreciated!

For a video I’ll see if I can upload one here. I’d have to take it all apart and re do it to make a good video. I know 2 that explain it well.



these 2 guys I know who did a good job explaining the process. I just used a different Brand called pqy or something. Only 25 on Amazon. Also if you run the can on your drivers side like I do. Be sure to get some really good fuel lines that can are strong.

I've used two similar to the original posted one for the last +10 years with no problem. I needed to make some modifications but other than that a good deal for $20 a can. Probaly needed another $20 in hoses and hardware.

I used 3/8" ID fuel hose and a short piece of 1/2" heater hose. The 1/2' fits on the intake end and the 3/8" the rest.

The 3/8" hose will slide right into the 1/2" heater hose. Then a simple hose clamp over the area where they meet and it all set.

I got rid of the sight tube and put in brass pipe plugs. Also took out the bottom drain plug, screwed in a 1/4"" NPT x 3/8" hose nipple into it for a drain hose. Did not worry about threads matching because they are metric on the can. When you screw them in they cut new threads.
