DIY Catch Can

So i was getting tired of my old catch can filling up every once and a while and spilling over into the engine bay, i decided to make a new one. As long as you have a welder this is pretty easy to make. The dimensions for the can are 6x4x7 and it fits right behind the windshield washer fluid. The part list is as follows:

Thin sheet metal
2 3/8 brass barbed fittings
1 drain valve
5 feet of 3/8 hose
2 small filters

Here are some pics:

Previous catch can:


The moch-up:


Test fit:


Spot welding it together:


Another engine bay shot:


More or less welded together:


Cleaning up the welds:


Inside view:


Mounting bracket welded on and one barb threaded on:


Both barbed fittings on:


Well thats all i got for now...feel free to leave questions or comments.

Arrow Re: DIY Catch Can

Don't forget Andy, he's running turbo and there is more blowby. No sense in making the small Kobalt catch can if you have to empty it pretty often.

I believe that in the end, after it's touched up and polished it would look good. Good job on DIY. Cheap large catch cans can be gotten as low as $20 though, no name, and no time investment..

You just don't get the experience and pride though, if you buy one .

How are you going to weld that brass barb to steel though?? If you don't seal it you will have a boost leak..

Damn that thing is huge like a battery box!

Re: DIY Catch Can

A little update on the catch can. Pretty much done welding. Just have to drill the filters into place and paint it. Take a looksy and tell me what you think.

Ginding away at the weld puddles:


Sanding it down a bit:


All grinded down and sanded:
