Mazdaspeed 3 Gets a Catch Can

The MS3 might have been one of the pioneers in the North American hot-hatch movement, but like the rest of the direct-injected turbocharged engines of that era, it suffers from copious carbon buildup due to engine blow-by. The 2.3L MZR turbo has a unique issue with blow-by because it is equipped with a top-mounted intercooler, which is prone to heat-soak, effectively baking all of the oil and fuel droplets into the heat exchanger. With the Mishimoto 2007-2013 Mazdaspeed 3 Baffled Oil Catch Can Kit, those crankcase gases are intercepted before even reaching the intercooler. Our engineers included a taller 7.5oz catch can to compensate for the increased levels of blow-by that the Mazdaspeed 3 experiences in colder weather and pre-formed hoses to ensure a simple and direct fit. This catch can installs in under 30 minutes and is included under the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty.
