DIY Oil Catch Can installation instructions
Thanks to BretQ for his permission to use this DIY

How to install an Oil Catch Can in a 94 01 Acura Integra.
Process should be pretty simple and straightforward.



Here are the parts that are needed for the installation:
Moroso Dry Sump Breather Tank (Oil Catch Can). # 85470. (see figure 1)
$65.99 @ Jegs

PCV Valve (real application is a Ford truck) (see figure 2)
Fram FV294 or
Motorcraft EV-140 or
Puralotor PV-140 or
FOMOCO E7TZ-6A666-A
$1.99 @ Advance Auto Parts

Help! Ford PCV Valve rubber grommet #42048 (see figure 3)
$4.99 @ Advance Auto Parts

Watts 3/8" I.D. Barb to MIP Adapter # A-294. (see figure 4)
$1.48 @ Home Depot

Watts 3/8" Barb Splicer #A-290 (see figure 5)
$1.39 @ Home Depot

3/8" ID fuel hose (see figure 6)
$0.99 per/ft @ Advance Auto Parts

Teflon Tape (see figure 7)
$0.67 @ Home Depot

1/4" to 5/8" hose clamps (5 needed) (see figure
$0.58 @ Home Depot




Installation Instructions:

1.Put Teflon tape on the threads of the A-294 3/8" bard to MIP Adapter and then screw it into side of the Moroso tank.
2.If your car is normally aspirated (ie. not turbo charged or super charged), cut the bottom off of the new PCV valve and remove the spring and the weighted valve (see figure 9). If your car is boosted (ie. turbo charged or super charged), cut the bottom off of the stock PCV valve and remove the spring and the weighted valve.
3.Install the new PCV valve into the Help! rubber grommet (see figure 10). 4.Install the rubber grommet with the PCV valve onto the top of the oil catch can (see figure 11).
5.Locate a suitable location in the engine compartment for the mounting of the oil catch can. (I chose a location on the passenger side shock tower see figure 11).
6.Remove the hose from the original PCV valve barb. Install the barb splicer (A-290) into the end of the hose and securing it with a hose clamp. 7.Install one end of the fuel hose onto the other end of the barb splicer (A-290). Secure it with a hose clamp.
8.Determine the length of hose that is needed to the new PCV valve on top of the oil catch can. Cut the hose to the proper length and install the hose onto the new PCV valve on the oil catch can. Secure the hose with a hose clamp.
9.Install one end of the fuel hose onto the other end of the original PCV valve barb. Secure the hose with a hose clamp.
10.Determine the length of hose needed to install the hose onto the Watts 3/8" barb to MIP adapter (A-294) on the oil catch can. Cut the hose to the proper length and install it onto the barb on the oil catch can, secure it with a hose clamp.
11.Start the engine and check to make sure that there are no vacuum leaks.


See figure 12 for a diagram on how the oil catch can should be hooked up.

See figure 13 for a diagram of the stock PCV system.

It is used to prevent crankcase oil gasses which contain HydroCarbons from entering into the Intake. When the gasses meet the cooler surface of the intake tube,TB, & IM they will condense on those surfaces. They have been used in racing for many years
So basically it does what the oem system does but it keeps the oily gasses out of your intake.
