Looking for a good quality OCC, I see the price varies greatly with these things. I would like to be able to drain it without taking it apart, but if I have to take it apart that's ok too. Thanks

I have a mishimoto. I really like the look of the JBR. All of the catch cans that I have seen, the base canister unscrews so you can empty it. You just twist it back on when its drained.

Another consideration is the mounting spot. They either mount down close to the drivers side rail at the transmission or where the symposer is (which must be removed and a symposer delete used.

I just bought my car and a catch can, went with the JBR because or the relatively low price, uses all stock hoses(I believe) and their continual presence on this site

Leaning towards the JBR, I hear good things about JBR in general and the price seems right. Thanks.

One more thing, does location matter? I noticed the JBR site has a choice between upper and lower mount, does it matter?

I went with the lower point, as I just got the car and I kinda like the sound symposer for now

I went with the Damond motor sports one. Love it. Looks sleek. Really easy to drain. You attach a drain tube to it and pull the lever to drain it. I can do all this without lifting my car up or going underneath it. Granted I do have a sound symposer delete though.

The Damond looks nice too.

Next question :smile: I see there are stage 1 and stage 2 OCC's, which one to get? The only performance mod I plan to do is a FMIC and a OTS tune from Straitified. Or is it a good idea to do both? Thanks for the replies.

From the homework I did, the PCV OCC is the main one to get as that one will catch ~80+% of the oil in the vacuum/intake system. I don't recall details on a good/better time to go with the valve cover OCC, but from my homework, it seemed like very very little return on your investment.

Thank you, I'll start with the PCV one.

I saw mountune has a oil breather plate now..

http://www.mountuneusa.com/Breather-Plate-Ford-EcoBoost-2-0L-and-2-3L-p/2363-obp-aa.htm





Breather Plate, Ford EcoBoost 2.0L and 2.3L

Application :
Focus ST 2013 - 2016
Focus RS 2016

Engines create oil vapor from the crankcase and cylinder head that is usually recycled back through the air intake system. This vapor can create a buildup of carbon deposits on the intake valve that can reduce engine performance.

Additionally, the oil vapor can accumulate on the intake hoses, turbocharger, intercooler, and intake tract over a period of time slowing airflow thereby reducing performance. For optimized engine performance, the oil should be removed from the vapor before it reaches the engine’s intake system.


The mountune Breather Plate directly replaces the original engine block plate and features a 100% increase in baffle surface area over the original part. The increase in baffle surface area allows more crankcase vent vapor to be trapped and remain in the crankcase where it belongs. Additionally the route the oil vapor takes on its way to the intake manifold is significantly increased through the baffles resulting in an increase of deflection areas. At each deflection point, additional oil is removed from the vapor. Installation is easy and while not required the mountune Breather Plate can be used with many catch can systems on the market. This part is a must for high boost, high performance applications.


Essential on modified engines
Direct replacement
Easy installation
Machined from solid aluminum with precision steel baffles
Hard anodized durable finish

This diagram illustrates the increased path and deflections points encountered by the oil vapor compared the original plate below.

Yeah your going to want PCV first. I still don't know the difference between stage 1 and 2

I believe the stage 1 is for the valve cover and stage 2 is for the PCV, but don't ask me lol.

Yeah mine is stage 1 and I drain it every 800-1000 miles and a decent amount of oil comes out of it. It's a great investment no matter what brand you go with.

On the JBR site their selling stage 1 (valve cover), stage 2 (PCV) and a dual kit that has both.

just installed a JBR occ (pcv) today. other than detaching the fitting from behind the manifold, it was a piece a cake. 1hr job if you already have the symposer delete and choose the upper mount option.

As a cheap alternative to the valve cover can that is stupid easy and 100% reversible in 2 seconds I recommend the CFM breather cap:

Loved my Boomba, caught a ton of crap, but I did take it off to drain it. The Red finished matched the Race Red really well too
