The Perrin Can is a POS.

I wasted 90 bucks on a 4" dia silicone hose, a pair of billet end caps, and misc pieces.

The instructions on the installation barely work for a 5spd car which makes it highly suspect to begin with. I have a 4eat, which made any installation remotely resembling the 5spd impossible.

I had to totally re-engineer the damn thing to get it to fit. I cut off like 3" off the hose, then used the otherwise useless supplied bracket to mount it to my throttle linkage. I had to reshape and grind the bracket in order for it to work. I'll post pics soon as I can, to share with the other 4eat owners.

But if you comtemplating this can, I suggest something else. After this install, I am highly suspect of ever buying another Perrin product.

FYI: I installed the Perrin Catch Can in my 2004 WRX with NO PROBLEMS. The directions from World One Performance were included and were easy to follow. I also did not need to remove the coolant reservoir, but it would have been easier if I did.

I suggest loosening the battery straps and pushing back the battery. Also, orientate the catch can bottom strap screw so that the head points toward the engine and not the sidewall. Then you can easily use a long screwdriver to twist it tight.

The red can and hoses look cool in my red WRX, and it does seem to be catching some blow-by.

Too expensive but works well and fits perfectly!

Same here, mine works well, definitely less blowby. But fit was different for me since I'm using Morettes, they made fitting very simple.

I'll second that now after 4 months. The site tube remains empty. I'm going to remove it and examine the insides. Will likely replace the hose I cut for the install and leave it out of my car.

Probably only needed if you track the car.

I bought a Red one yesterday for my 04 WRX, Plan on installing in a few weeks along with my Defi Boost gauge and Oil pressure gauge, Radiator Shroud I'm guessing will only take a few mins

I finally got around to checking it out.

There's a 0.005mm coating of oil on the bottom (inside) after a hard 6000 miles (WOT to near redline every day in 2nd and 3rd at 16-17psi).

I double checked the bottom (outside) for any oil film or runoff and checked all underneath the can for any sign of leakage. The hose clamp is plenty tight and there's not a single sign of any oil outside the can on the bottom.

I can only deduce that this is very very near worthless for my car.

Also, given the amount of suction I feel from the hose at part throttle (out of gear), I wouldn't be surprised at all if anything put into the can is being sucked right back out. Stupid design. There needs to be a chamber inside it that lets the oil film run down through a center hole/drain and not get sucked back out. Or something...

I don't get why you resurrected a thread from 2004.

I have a Perrin catch can and it it's worthless. Drove for 2 years and not a single drop of oil. The design of it really has no way for the oil to actually get caught. When the motor is running the lines are way to close that it just sucks the oil back into the intake. I finally decided to do something about it, I bought a plastic pond filter and cut it in some what of a X shape. The bad air goes into the can and the oil sticks to the plastic (sweats kind of) and then the good air goes back into the intake. After doing this I noticed good results. I wouldn't use foam... it will fall apart really quick, has to be plastic or a more durable material.
