Over the weekend I installed an oil catch can on the GV70. I bought a Saikou-Michi catch can from Tucson, Arizona. These are made to order. I had one on my Genesis Coupe and I have one on my Veloster N. You can customize fittings, nipple sizes and even the finish as part of the cost. I ordered a basic brushed aluminum OCC with 3/8" fittings. I prefer the smaller fittings because the 3/8" gasoline hose is easier to route and work with. What I discovered on the 3.5T is the vacuum line from the manifold was 3/4" and the PCV line was 1/2". After all is said and done I should have ordered the can with 1/2" fittings. I used a 5/8" gasoline line from the manifold. I have a tubing expander tool then reduced it to 3/8". So higher velocity when it hits the can. From the PCV I used 1/2" reduced to 3/8". Given the direction of the nipples on the engine I had to run the vacuum input line around the air cleaner. I was able to bend the line from the PCV without any problem. The can is located next to the fuse box located on the passenger-side front engine bay. This seemed to be the best location because you want these placed in as cool a part of the engine bay as possible. Given this is a GDI engine I consider these a must to reduce build-up on the intake valves. I have found with my four bangers that I empty these at each oil change. I will monitor this more closely given the increased size of the engine.
