Why it works
The Racer X Fabrication Catch can for the 2012+ Chevy Sonic was designed to reduce oil in the air stream when exiting the PCV and crankcase. The catch can / air oil separator works by intercepting the air / oil from the PCV or crankcase, and through a series of filters and baffles, keeps the oil in the catch can and allows the air to flow through. As the air and oil droplets enter the catch can they first pass through a micron stainless steel sintered filter to begin the separation process. Oil that does pass this barrier is then forced downward to enter the internal baffle system. We specifically designed the baffles and perforation pattern to assist in allowing the air to flow freely and provide the oil every opportunity to stay in the catch can. Finally once through the internal baffle system, the air will pass through a micron filter before exiting back into the vehicle system. The system has been tested and proven effective after multiple iterations of CFD analysis and road testing.
When it comes time to drain your catch can, we include a stainless steel mini ball valve that allows you to place a canister below the catch can and drain the contents. Knowing when to drain your catch can is simple, the Racer X Fabrication catch can has an easy view sight glass, no more guessing.
The Racer X Fabrication catch can is available in a corrosion resistant anodized finish black or gray, and is finished with our logo laser etched on the side of the catch can. The catch can mounting is powder coated wrinkle black for an OEM appearance.
