Regular track drivers have discovered that not all catch tank kits are equal.
The most important and unique aspect of our Oil Management System is that it offers a proper solution to oil starvation under high-G braking. So, push your car hard on track, with track-tyres and uprated brakes and this is something that you really need to be aware of.
Our motorsport experience has taught us that these EA888.3 engines tend to collect a large volume of oil at the front of the cylinder head during heavy, long braking. At best, that can lead to clouds of white smoke from the tailpipes. At worst, with no oil returning to the sump, this starves the oil pick up and the engine can momentarily “run dry” – enough to cause devastating consequences to your engine internals. Not good, to say the least.
It’s no surprise that we share this exact same oil management design with Volkswagen Motorsport, Audi Sport and Cupra for the TCR race cars. Our clever baffled PCV block forces the oil back to the sump under heavy braking to fix this problem once and for all.
Don’t go on track without it!
