Designed in house by M7 Speed, this kit is an exact fit onto the R60/R61 Mini Cooper S platform. No need to modify anything! Even the hoses are pre-cut and assembled to the exact length! The kit comes with a "designed-to-fit" stainless steel bracket, stainless steel mounting hardware and pre-assembled hoses. Installation is super easy...no drilling and no special tools are needed.
Now with "Exact-Fit" pre-assembled hoses there is no need to cut the factory breather tube so when it is time to sell your car it can be returned to exact stock configuration.
The M7 Oil Catch Can is not only functional is a work of automotive performance ART! It is CNC machined from billet aluminium and adds a sharp look to your engine compartment.
Why install a M7 oil catch can you ask? With the M7 Oil Catch Can, your MINI Cooper's engine will be protected from excessive oil and hydrocarbon buildup which leads to performance-hindering oil film and sludge along your intake tract, on your engine control sensors and on your engine's intake valves. Because the 2007 & up MINI is direct injection, the intake valves do not get cleaned of oil residue form the gasoline mixture which in previous engines was ahead of the valve. Now, all the oil blow-by burns onto the intake valves and builds up. The end result is loss of power and a very expensive repair bill. This oil film and sludge can appear in other critical places throughout the engine -- such as the intercooler -- where clean surfaces are critical for maximised heat transfer and on your MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow) where the film will cause the sensor to send a false signal to your ECU killing performance. By capturing excess oil vapour and particles, the M7 Oil Catch Can ensures that oil film and sludge will not become a factor in your vehicle's performance. If you don't think your engine is pumping oil back through your intake system, remove the breather tube and look at all the oil!. The breather tube connects directly to your intake hose and directs this oily mess back through your engine to be burned.
All hoses, brackets, clamps, necessary fittings and detailed easy to follow step-by-step instructions are included, including an oil drain plug and an easy to view sight tube. The sight tube lets you know the amount of oil in the can. The hoses are high quality "Made in the USA" automotive grade, designed to withstand the rigors of the under-hood environment and to not degrade when exposed to oil. Beware of other "low cost" catch can systems that use silicone hoses, because oil and silicone are not compatible. Silicone hoses will eventually deteriorate and make an absolute mess of your engine compartment.
