What does that do?
Keeps oil mist out of your intercooler and off your valves. Excess pressure in the crankcase is vented back into the air intake in modern engines. This caries a fine mist of oil with it that can gum up your engine (if it's direct injection). The catch can filters the oil out and either stores it or returns it to the crankcase.

Edit: I've been eyeing this Provent because it has pressure relief and a return line.

Thanks! From what I understand the only reason manufacturers don't put them on is that it's another maintenance task that your average consumer doesn't want to deal with.

Thought I'd share three close call's I've had in a month. I thought Tennessee drivers were pretty bad till I came to Virginia! I'm thankful each time this happens that I have a dash cam as my witness because there might be a day when it's not a close call and I'll have proof of the entire situation!

Finally Ktuned my 1.5t coupe with the stage 2 custom..........all I can say is wow. No more stock ECU setting for a long while. Maybe back to stock before winter.
Thanks to a member from 10th gen Ontario civic Facebook group. I bought the V1 amazing deal.

Also added a nice trim to all my rims.
