This single oil catch can kit is compatible with all 1998-2006 BMW E46 3-series models including the M3.
An oil catch can is essential on a performance vehicle to protect the engine from elevated levels of crankcase blow-by accumulated from aggressive driving. Excess oil saturated air circulating back into the air intake stream can lead to degraded performance. Radium Engineering's closed loop system do NOT vent to atmosphere (VTA), thus are emissions and track legal. Instead, clean filtered air routes back in through the engine to be burned and to promote negative crankcase pressure for optimal performance. Furthermore, a closed system prevents unwanted oil vapors into the cabin.
Unlike many catch cans on the market, this catch can features an integrated oil separator that accelerates oil condensation.
