Have a Nice Day? oil vapor catch can or ... I am confused

ok,

I have purchased RalliSpec intake system from RalliSpec. They have discontinued making them, so I told him I'll buy what you got and then make the rest myself. The picture below is what I got, just a tube and a K&N cone filter. The tube goes directly onto the throttle body.

I asked him: "what do I need to do to finish it?"

he said: "well, you would need brakets to hold the tube, and a heat shield".

I said: "ok, can't be that hard".

I then asked him: "but other than that it is ready to go, I can just put it on."

He said: " yep"


So when I was taking off the original air box, I noticed 3 hoses that come from the engine block, to the air box. If I would installed RalliSpec system it would leave those 3 hoses unconnected.

Then I called RalliSpec back. And he told me, "oh yeah, you will need a catch can for those 3 hoses"

I think I have fugured out that the catch can is, but my question is , where can I get it, and if I can feed those 3 hoses into the RalliSpec tube instead.

please help, bacause right now I just bought stuff that has no freakin use for me.

Thanks

Alex

The origional RalliSpec can was custom made IIRC. If I had to use a catch can, I would probably go with a JAZ breather tank. The 1 pint size unit. It only has 2 inlets, but you can use a T fitting to attach the 3rd hose.

I got a jaz products oil catch can(breather) for my 02 rs. last year. Its amazing how much oil collects in that can. The thought of that much oil going into my intake scares me. I also got a good deal on my catch can. Here is the link to where I got mine.

I have the Rallispec system. The intake comes with a little catch can that mounts to one of the aribox brackets, and all three hoses connect to it.

It also comes with a plexiglas heat sheild and some spacers for the hood vent to let cool air in.

Actually, you didnt happen to get these did you? Cause I need new ones!

For the heat sheild a guy named steathbmber or something similar was making them for like 30 bucks a pop. Havent seen him on the board in a while i think he switched jobs and lost internet access but maybe someone may still be in touch with him.

Thanks for responces guys. I can make the heat shield myself. But I am going to go with this breather/catch can (picture below). It only has 2 nipples.

My question is: do all 3 tubes that go into air box, on origional Subaru set up "inlets", or is it 2 side tubes are inlets and middle outlet? Because I will need to connect 2 tubes in 1 before going in breather tank. Whould it matter which to tubes to connect, or would it be better to connect 2 side tubes and leave middle one alone?

Thanks again

Alex

From the looks of the valve on the middle one, I'd say that's a drain.

Comes standard with molded-in inserts and a swivel petcock for easy draining.
Yup, middle one is for draining. I'd connect 2 lines to one side and the third to the other side. Just get a Y coupler and you should be fine.
