  • DIY: Installed Oil Catch Can in HTC

    Installed a UPR Oil Catch Can in my HTC. Should help keep the valves clean. The kit was easy to install and is really well made.

    I installed a catch-can years ago on my car, because I'd heard that oil-cooled turbochargers can pass oil through. As far as I can tell, it's never picked up any oil, even after years of hard driving. Does anyone have a catch-can that's actually trapped a significant amount?

      Two, one on a Harley Dyna and one on a supercharged Mini Cooper S. I emptied it each oil change and had at least a good few ounces each time.

          I saw this on HorsePower Obsessed a while back and they didn't have one yet for the HTC. I emailed them back them and they said "oh, the convertible is different? We will have to look into that." Nice to see they followed through with the research and made it happen. By the way HorsePower has a discount code on his Youtube channel also, 10% off.

            Anyone know if installing the catch can affects the warranty?

              Absolutely will not affect your warranty.

                  Note: with all due respect to the poster above, unless the MECF members also have “Harlan”, “Tadge” or even “Mary Barra” advising us “quote” that doing “this” to our C8 will have absolutely no effect on our GM warranty, I would strongly suggest you verify with your GM Dealer any mod you want to make to your car and it’s potential affect upon your warranty, prior to installing it. While many of us on this forum possess a veritable wealth of knowledge when it comes to the Corvette, unless they officially speak for and on behalf of GM, check with your dealer first and get it in writing.

                  As referenced in Warranty guide: This warranty does not cover any damage or failure resulting from
                  modification or alteration to the vehicle's original equipment as manufactured or assembled by
                  General Motors. Examples of the types of alterations that would not be covered include cutting, welding, or disconnecting of the vehicles original equipment parts and components.

                  Additionally, General Motors does not warranty non-GM parts,
                  calibrations, and/or software modifications. The use of parts, control module calibrations, software modifications, and/or any
                  other alterations not issued through General Motors will void the warranty coverage for those components that are damaged or otherwise affected by the installation of the non-GM part, control module calibration, software modification,
                  and/or other alteration.

                      The one in my C7 gets about an ounce every 1000 miles. Has since new. If yours isn't then either (1) it not designed right, (2) it's not installed right, (3) your PCV system isn't working right. Or, perhaps more likely, the system you installed, which is designed to catch oil coming through the turbo is a different design, since I don't think a normal catch can would have any effect on oil coming through the turbo. By design a PCV system takes crankcase vapors and puts them through the intake manifold. A catch can should be inline between the PCV valve and intake, and capture oil vapors before they get to the intake.

                          2021articspeed While I don’t disagree with you whatsoever, try winning a battle with the big three Automakers. I’ve done it. After providing copious amounts of evidence, dealer repair invoices, oil change receipts, and verified that I followed the Owners Manual on service intervals, I won the battle of having my fuel injectors replaced. Albeit, it was with Dodge and not GM, but I know how auto manufacturers can be with their warranties. They look for ways out of coverage, because let’s face it, if 10,000, 50,000, 100,000 or even 1 million potential repairs are challenged and won by GM, that increases their bottom line.

                            Totally unrelated story so feel free to skip, and not one of the big three, obviously, but I had a run-in with Harley over the transmission in my 2006 Dyna 3 months after my warranty was out. They had initially, on only the 2006 Dyna as it was the first Harley with a 6 speed, said that the input shaft bearing should be replaced every 15k miles at HD cost for the life of the bike due to an engineering issue with the casing. What it was is they had not put locating dowels on any bolt holes between the primary and transmission on that first 6 speed and, over time, as bolts loosened the primary could shift downward putting pressure on the input shaft bearing. If it wiped out it ruined the entire transmission.

                            Well, I hit 14k on a trip from Palm Springs to San Diego out in the middle of the desert (Winchester) on a VERY hot day and when I got to a stop light and dropped it in neutral I heard a whirring noise, like a bad throwout bearing in older cars. I went straight to the dealership in Temecula who tore it down and verified it was the bearing. It wasn't gone, thankfully, but I needed the bearing replaced and new updated cases with locating dowels but my warranty had expired while I was deployed.

                            The MOCO initially denied the warranty claim from the dealership even though I provided the letter I received from Harley that this service be performed on their dime for the life of the bike because they had cancelled that. I followed their appeal process exactly as it was laid out and, within a couple weeks and shortly before I was going to start lawyering up instead of paying a $4,000 repair, I got a call from the dealership saying HD had decided to cover it, give me an entirely new transmission, and give me a loaner bike during the repair process.

                            It took them almost two months to get everything done as they ordered the wrong parts and messed a couple things up but I was riding a brand new Streetglide the entire time and put a TON of miles on it.

                            They wound up relenting based on my deployment, said it's HD policy to pause warranty coverage for service members while deployed, so my warranty was still in force. Even though that is the case I'm fairly certain they realized that this could get ugly if there does have to be legal proceedings, etc. due to them even initially saying that this was covered for the life of all 2006 Dynas and later canceling that service bulletin.

                              In my experience with the HDMC, although I’ve had to “argue” my case with them, in the end, they did the right thing. Shouldn’t have to require the customer to argue at all. What’s right, is right and wrong is wrong. Unfortunately, many customers accept “NO” as an answer without having knowledge of warranty rights, or TSB’s or letters from the manufacturer.

                              Sorry to hear about your Dyna, but in the end, they did the right thing and that’s what’s important (headaches aside). 🤬
