Vudu Oil Catch Can

As always you can expect the ultimate tuning experience from any Ford tuning product wearing the prestigious VUDU brand.

Painstakingly designed, manufactured and tested by one of the most successful Ford tuning companies in the world, it’s no surprise the VUDU Fiesta ST catch can kit is leading the way. Not only does the VUDU oil management system ooze prestige engineering quality with beautiful T6 aerospace grade aluminium, but it is also a specifically designed crimp fit with JIC-6 aluminium fittings with a structurally reinforced and hard coated bracket to make it one of the most functional internal make ups available.

LETS LOOK INSIDE:

Too many catch cans don’t have our condensing technology with baffle inside! Before we delve into what that is let’s understand why it’s important…

The modern-day internal combustion engine is forced to become more and more efficient pushed by the consumer for fuel economy and the governing bodies expecting green technology and pollution friendly manufacturing.

We welcomed the direct injection engines, found the fords EcoBoost engine range in 2012/2013 resulting in fantastic emission and pollution control amazing fuel economy and another leap in performance figures from the factory.

WHERE DOES A CATCH CAN COME INTO THIS?

The Fiesta ST180 and later Fiesta ST Mk8 ST200 are both direct injection turbocharged vehicles sporting Fords ecoboost engine.

One of the first things most new owners of the Fiesta ST do is go for a remap or tuning package why not it’s a great idea to further improve an amazing chassis. We do however over look the inherit down side to the punchy ecoboost direct injection engine. Injectors are no longer inefficiently built into the inlet manifold where they fire fuel into the head and topside of the valves, they are now a high pressure unit found firing directly into the cylinders at high pressure (click here to find out more) this coupled with the engine breather system directing the oily mist from the engines directly back into the intake path through the turbo and ultimately over the inlet valves we have a recipe for massive carbon deposits around the head and inlet valve. This would have previously been washed away by the port style injectors in days gone by. That said, a catch can was still used in most cases on performance cars to help oil management during hard cornering and engines that breath particularly heavy.

Inside the VUDU Fiesta ST catch can you will find our baffle or windage plate along with condensing material to ensure the mist turns to droplets and falls into the can rather than passing through in the case of most low end catch can kits found for sale on eBay, forums etc.

WHY BILLET JIC FITTINGS?

Anyone with engineering or motorsport experience will tell you that the only true way for pipe installation and fluid control is done with JIC fittings and definitely not jubilee style clips, with a correctly fitted JIC fitting there is a total guarantee of avoiding a leak path which is not the case with a jubilee clip.

THE DIP STICK:

People often ask why did we go to the extra length of having a removable oil dipstick in our Fiesta catch can? Our answer is it’s the attention to detail that makes VUDU the brand that it is. Yes splitting the can is easy and yes we included a drain plug to so it can be drained without splitting or removing, but why not go one step further and allow the user to check the oil content with the original sealed thumb screw dipstick?
