The VWR Oil Catch Tank & Oil Management System is the ultimate oil separating catch can system for MQB EA888 Gen3 2.0T engine cars.
Not all catch cans are created equal. The VWR system has a dual function: as well as routing undesirable oil and moisture vapours through a sophisticated system of internal baffles and a fully baffled catch can, the VWR Oil Catch Can System also takes our track & motorsport experience of these engines to correct the problem of oil build-up in the top of the engine during high-G braking. The kit includes our Engine Breather Plate – just as the Golf and SEAT TCR EA888 touring cars use to avoid the oil surge issue. Read more.
So not only does the VWR Oil Management System condense these vapours into the bottom of the tank, keeping a purer air/fuel mixture and avoiding the problem of slowly filling intercooler and intake pipework with oil. The Engine Breather Plate included in the kit also protects your engine by helping to eradicate oil starvation in very high G braking – an issue when used on track, leading to several engine failures in our testing experience.
VWR OIL CATCH TANK SYSTEM
KEY TECH SPECS
By extracting oil and moisture vapours into the catch tank, not the intercooler piping or inlet charge, a much purer air/fuel intake charge enters the combustion chamber for maximum efficiency and performance.
BAFFLED CATCH TANK
Many Catch Cans on the market are just an empty container with 2 ports. The VWR system features a four way baffle system to ensure superior separation of oil and condensation.
Two mounting brackets secure the oil tank firmly to the existing LH engine mount, to provide maximum space and OE appearance. The lower bracket uses the main engine mount bolt whilst the upper locates on the thread on the top of the mount.
A beautiful billet dip stick is provided for accurate oil level measurement. The tank has its own drain port for quick and easy emptying.
The billet Engine Breather Plate, (unlike some other kits which do not even replace the standard PCV valve), has an internal angled baffle plate above drain holes, returns oil rapidly into the engine before it even enters the system, crucial under high-G braking.
Manufactured from CNC 5-axis machined billet 6061 aluminium, the kit components are highly polished then hard anodised in high gloss black, finally laser etched with the Racingline seal of approval.
