billetcatchcansIs your vehicle suffering from any of the symptoms listed below?

  • Poor fuel consumption
  • Sluggish/Loss of power
  • Black smoke

If your answer is yes or no, in all likelihood at some stage you are assured of experiencing these situations with your turbo diesel powered vehicle.

EGR Issues – Turbo Diesel Engines

What causes this?

With Turbo Diesel Engines, an oil mist from the engine crankcase enters into the intake manifold and combines with the heated contaminated gases of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) at 300-400 degrees Celsius. It creates a carbon build-up in the intake ports and manifold. This carbon build-up, over a relatively short period, restricts the volume of air that would normally be allowed to flow through the manifold into the combustion chamber – refer to manifold & egr pictures.

The less flow, the less performance – prevention is the key to avoid the following systematic problems

billetcatchcan2Is your vehicle suffering from any of the symptoms listed below?

  • Blocked intake ports
  • Blocked EGR valves
  • Poor fuel consumption & loss of Power
  • Black smoke
  • Loss of intercooler efficiency
  • Pershing of Turbo Hose

How can I prevent this from happening?

  • Fit Billet Catch Can
  • Fitting EGR Plate (we do not sell these)

 

Not rectifying this issue can result in very costly and major damage to your vehicle components and may result in engine detonation.


Solution

The TaipanXP Billet Catch Can collects the oil mist and condenses the fuel vapours while allowing “cleaner” gases to be passed back into the intake. Since the Billet Catch Can condenses the vapour portion of the gasses, they will need to be drained periodically of all the oil, fuel and other contaminants.

The TaipanXP Billet Catch Can meets current emission requirements and will not affect engine warranty. The Billet Catch Can is fitted between the engine breather and the air intake. No drilling or extensive modification to the vehicle is required as we use the existing factory holes on the vehicle.

TaipanXP’s Billet Catch Can is available for the following vehicle models in DIY kit form. Each kit comes with detailed fitting instructions and depending on the vehicle model will also come with bracket, joiner, hoses, clamps, nuts, bolts, washers, cable ties, drain kit & drain kit bracket. On certain Billet Cans you will also need Loctite to ensure your bolt stays in place.

We often get asked what sets our product apart from our competitors, please read our points of difference below

  • Our competitors (in the main) will offer you a cheaper product; however we have found that some of these Catch Cans don’t even have a filter element, let alone baffle’s . We use a Stainless Steel filter element in the catch can to ensure that oil mist that comes from the engine crankcase is captured before entering the air intake which helps to prevent EGR build up in the intake manifold.
  • We only sell vehicle specfic kits, each kit comes with detailed fitting instructions and depending on the vehicle model will also come with bracket, joiner, hoses, clamps, nuts, bolts, washers, cable ties, drain kit & drain kit bracket. if required. The only item that is not supplied is Loctite (for underbonnet mount). Please note you may already have aftermarket accessories in place where we fit our Billet Can, please contact us before purchase for vehicle specfic fittment information. We do not offer Universal Kits.The reason why we do this is below:
    • All kits come with correct barb & hose sizes to suit the fittings on your vehicle – 1/2”, 5/8”, 7/8” & 1”. Please note it is extremely important that the standard fittings and the fittings/hose that is supplied with an aftermarket Catch Can are the same size.
    • Some competitor’s kits have mismatched hose/barb sizes, due to the size difference this can lead to increased crankcase pressures, blowing seals and premature engine wear.
  • Our Billet Catch Can will accommodate 350ml of oil, which is ideal for customers, as it has enough capacity so you should only have to check it at 10,000km and are able to line it up with you service intervals, making it easier to remember. We do recommend for older vehicles to check more regularly.
  • All our Billet Catch Cans come with a 10 year warranty – this item is a serviceable product and every 40,000km the filter and O-ring must be changed and can be purchased off TaipanXP for $10.00 + Freight.
