This kit, designed specifically for the Audi ttS, is unquestionably the most comprehensive out of all of the currently available catch tank options. With no intentions of rushing to market with an incomplete offering, we spent significant amounts of time on every last detail of the kit, incorporating everything necessary to completely bypass the stock PCV system while actually providing increased operative function over the OEM design. The kit is recirculating in design so as to maintain emissions compliance, however, it will capture all of the blow-by gasses and vapors that would otherwise lead to deposits on the intake valves, thereby keeping the system clean and the engine performing optimally long-term. The kit incorporates features such as:
- Hand-fabricated aluminum tank
- Maintenance free baffle design
- CNC machined billet aluminum PCV bypass plate ("Africa plate")
- Clip-on intake manifold cap with 3 vacuum / boost references - Retains original engine cover mounting post location
- Hard anodised plate and manifold cap
- Sight glass to check tank fluid level
- Drain plug and crush washer
- Oil resistant flourosilicone lined molded hoses
- Stainless Steel hose clamps
- Optional Forge logo sticker
- Will work with aftermarket motor mounts
Designed to completely bypass the redundant and failure prone OEM PCV assembly. The stock PCV assembly includes a system of check valves that can effectively cause a boost leak of pressure back into the crankcase when they fail. This assembly also deposits the water, fuel, and oil vapors back into the intake manifold leading directly to valve deposits that can inhibit airflow and power over time. Our plate completely replaces this OEM assembly, bypassing the intake manifold entirely which will minimize intake valve deposits as well as eliminate the potential for a boost leak the wrong way through the system. The plate still incorporates the necessary provisions for equalizing the crankcase pressure from the lower portion of the block with the valve cover, and it also features a strategically placed swiveling outlet Fitting positioned at the ideal location for the venting of PCV gases to the tank. Another unique feature included with the kit is a double-o-ring sealed clip-on intake manifold cap with three available ports to source a vacuum/boost reference for various engine accessories, such as a boost gauge, bypass valve, or a water/methanol injection trigger. Any unused ports can be plugged with the included grub screws.
