Due pops into a thread for the 2015 with an FA motor and starts asking about catch cans for his 03 bugeye with EJ, which I am certain there are 5 billion threads on. It would also require a totally different set up than our cars. He then also states he is only posting here because he cannot make a new thread.

"Search, read and don't clutter" are excellent instructions. It often sounds like you want to shove the fishing pole up the guys ass rather then teach him how to use it.

You misquoted the proverb too, btw...

Default 2015 WRX catch can

You're right. I should have told him to google "nasioc: catch can" it would be much more effective.

Near as makes no difference, you got the point.

Hi guys... I'm brand new here and this is my first post. I've been eyeballing the '15 WRX for quite some time now. The only thing holding me back is the concerns over carbon build-up on the intake valves due to the DI design. I will be using the car as a commuter (90 miles/day) so I need long term reliability. I hope the Mishimoto catch can system is the answer to eliminating the carbon buildup on the intake valves. Other than the oil mist being returned to the intake tract, are there any other sources that could possibly be contributing to the crud buildup on the intake valves?

Thanks in advance.

Not really. DIs are new for Subaru, but not new in general.

Every DI car I've owned: 2012 S4, 2013 Mini Cooper S, and now the 2015 WRX, have all gotten catch cans. And each one has collected at least enough stuff to make me say "Huh, glad that didn't go back into the intake".

More and more cars are going to get DI. Can't escape that reality. These cars just aren't old enough to see long term effects.

I do think a catch can is the way to go and the Mishimoto looks good if not very pricey. I saw a great feature on another brand of catch can, it came with a dip stick. I thought this was a great feature, it makes checking the fill with out having to remove the whole can. For what the Mishimoto charges they need to make this a standard feature before I commit this type of money.

Other thing is the EGR. You can purchase an EGR delete but it will generate a CEL and you will need to get a tune to turn it off.

I am awaiting both the mishimoto dual catch can kit and an EGR delete. Fingers crossed that stops or greatly minimises the carbon build up!

Good looking stuff from you guys at Mishi. Do you guys think the stock (15-16's) need any upgrade for tranny and oil cooler? Just ran through them on Mishi's site, thought it would be a good time to ask before I purchased 1 or the other. Crawford's AOS claims not to void warranties btw.

Thats interesting. I would be very surprised if the only modification you had was a catch can/aos (that was not leaking or something) and your powertrain warranty claim was denied because of it.

I would like to hear a Subaru engineer explain that

There was a Subaru head technician on here saying that he would also run catch cans if he owned one lol.

I wonder if you can argue that Subaru has released a car with a maintenance defect and this resolves it without interfering with any other component of the car.

My mishimoto dual catch can system is installed. Kit was very nice quality and install guide was very good. Only thing to note is that on RHD cars the battery bracket fits for the ccv but the other one doesnt. I had to make up a custom bracket off the master cylinder for the pcv catch can.

Also deleted the egr to hopefully stop the deposits altogether.

Interesting, I hadnt heard of that! Thats not good news, I thought with the egr deleted and the catch cans that the problem would be gone!

No more babying then

We actually just released a drain valve system specifically for the catch cans included in this kit. Check it out below!




Looking forward to your response!

Thanks again!

For the price this should have been included, removing the catch cans is difficult.

I have to agree, getting the cans off is a pain.

I also would have to agree. On top if that it would be another great selling point if the Mishimoto kit.

Look into the add w1 . It gets about a teaspoon of fluid/oil in my XT every month.

I just checked mine yesterday after 4,000 miles and absolutely no oil/fluid in either catch can. The inside of both hoses was clean too.

I wonder how much this really contributes to the carbon buildup on the intake valves?? I have deleted the egr too so hopefully thats stopping some buildup.

Default 2015 WRX catch can

EGR is the main contributor. Catch cans offer a marginal improvement at best.

I checked mine at 1500 miles and have maybe a teaspoon on the passenger side can. The drivers side can has a light coat on the inside.
