    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.

    Construction

    Nearly Perfect

    Rating:
    Pros:
    • Well engineered
    • Looks fantastic
    • Sight glass works well
    • A steal at this price
    Cons:
    • Included intake manifold hose
    • Mounting plate hole spacing
    Overall, this catch can is very nice (like all of their other products that I have tried). The catch can itself is beautiful and very well engineered (a guy on YouTube took the mustang one apart which has the same internals to my knowledge). If this was a rating for just the catch can itself, I would give it more than 5 stars.
    I did run into a few snafus with the install. The mounting plate holes were not vertically spaced correctly for my car, so I drilled more of the existing plate holes out to fit correctly. I'm not sure if there is manufacturing variance on the chassis holes themselves, but that could be a factor. I also noticed that upon install, my car ran terribly. Turns out, the included hose that goes to the intake manifold was collapsing under idle vacuum. I would advise having some hose on hand that is rated for more PSI and use that instead. The hose running to the intake was perfect. I would also advise wrapping your hard AC line in something durable to protect it, as the mounting plate nearly makes contact with it (this engine bay is cramped so I can't knock them for the placement, especially with how big the stock air box is). Despite those nitpicks, I would definitely buy it again.

    Perfectly made
