i also have the dual catch can setup, but mines have both cans seperate unlike the op's. since i didnt relocate the battery i have one can, the one collecting blow by from the heads, by the driver strut (removed the WW tank). The other can, collecting oil from the crank case breather, is placed by the fender well holes on the passenger side.

Not much collected from the "crank case can", but from the "heads can" it seems i have collected a bit of oil. I dont get it though because on the instructions it says in order to drain, u have to spin the bolt on the thread closer to the can, and to keep it shut u need to spin it as far from the can as possible till it stops. I have mines shut but still seems like drops of oil come out. I have noticed on the engine bay and also if u touch the bottom of the drain there is oily residue.

OP do u get that problem?


Also for the guys using this setup, are u still utilizing the PCV or not?

The drain has about half an inch of tube after the actual valve that stops the flow of oil so I find if I don't stuff a rag in there and clean it out after draining the oil then I will get a few drops of oil in my engine bay under the can.

I've noticed mine dripping after closing the valves too. The next time I go to drain them I'll close the valves and wipe the inside of the tubes down. Then I'll know if they leak or not.

I definitely get the bulk of oil in my head breather CC. I have not pulled the PCV.

Ill do the same thing but if it continues dripping/leaking i will just connect a small hose to the drain valve and let it hang so any leaked oil can drop out on the floor instead of the engine bay.

I had my TMIC off the other day and it was pretty clean. Throttle body and turbo looked good too.

Maybe remove the drain valve from the can, give it a clean and test if it is leaking with some water on the end of a hose, if it is then I'm sure Mr Saikou would be happy to send you a new one.
