DD they are not needed at all.

Needed....No.

However beneficial? YES. Even daily driving the car has crank case pressure, with a proper atmospheric venting system (like ours), the car can benefit. If you were NEVER getting into boost, then it would be something else to talk about, but its an evo were talking about here...they spool every time you look at it.

The SSP product is very good. Not only is a great catch can but it replaces the front check valve and has high quality AN fittings and hoses. Do you need it?. I can't ansewer that but it's very high quality for those of us that do need it.

Wow $400 for a catch can?! I like the placement of it (although looks like a PITA to drain), but I would never spend anywhere near that much on a catch can.
If you look at the materials and quality/finish, you can see the price.

Its actually pretty easy to drain, you do not have to lift the car. We will be offering an "easy drain" kit in the future to where it will be a fitting sticking out the undertray just a bit so you can easily drain it. This kit is not available yet, however its on the development list.

For the quality part that it is:
If you wanted to make your own, something as professional as this unit, you are looking at $200.00 worth of parts alone. (Keep in mind fittings, hoses, can, welding, paint etc.) It all adds up. So now your down to making one on your own, and you have to develop a way to mount it, and prove that it is useful in your application.

In this instance, the company has developed this catch can system for you. Did all the research, parts, labor, etc.

So you ask, is it worth a 400 dollar price tag? Sure you can make one on your own, or buy one for under 100 dollars. But can you compare those to this product?

I am by no means an expert, nor am i trying to rep anyone out. But i will call them as i see them, and i must say that i really do like seeing companies making the small things count in our application.

just my 2 cents...

FWIW, this is what I got out of my AGP can after 3 months;



bolt on mods + tune
I baby the shit out of my car an thats what I got. Deff glad its not in my intake, its worth it to have one.
Full bolt-ons/tune evoXs with our kit normally show .5-.75 quart every 3-4k miles with our kit. It vents differently than all other kits on the market.

And yes, keeping this out of the intake and out of the intake manifold (there is a chance of it still going in the IM on most kits, such as the AGP, because they still vent back to the IM, our does not).

Interesting, do you have a link to your catch can?

Check out Moroso. They used our race car and designed a catch can for the Evo X. It works VERY well, mounts nicely and doesn't cost as much. Here's a link, scroll down. They also developed a racing oil pan for the Evo X. Very nice, and keeps my oil cooler.
