This installation kit was specifically designed for the 00-05 Honda S2000 LHD chassis. It is not compatible with any RHD or 06-09 LHD S2000 models. No worries, we have a separate catch can kit specifically for these S2000 models HERE. 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. Read all about the features and benefits of Radium's popular catch cans here:
-Effectively raises the octane and increased engine performance from cleaner inlet air -Prevents oil buildup in the intake or intercooler system walls, throttle body, intake manifold, etc. -Excessive oil collection can be an indicator of a damaged engine.-Lowers hydrocarbon emissions -Capacity: 6 fluid ounces -Height (without fittings): 5 inches -Outside Diameter: 2.45 inches
S2000 CATCH CAN KIT OPTIONSRadium Engineering offers two completely independent S2000 oil catch can kits that are sold individually or together. They do NOT vent to atmosphere (VTA), thus are emissions and track legal. Closed loop systems route clean filtered air back in through the engine to be burned and to promote negative crankcase pressure for optimal performance. Furthermore, closed systems prevent unwanted oil vapors into the cabin.
The "crankcase vent" catch can kit (shown below) runs inline with the 1/2" valve cover breather port. At low loads it experiences atmospheric pressure, but when the engine is at high load (WOT), this hose will experience vacuum and would normally be drawing unwanted crankcase vapors, unspent fuel, and oil sludge into the air filter intake pipe. If the engine is turbocharged or supercharged and you are finding oil accumulation stuck in the intercooler, this catch can is a necessity as oil will lower the thermal efficiency properties of the heat exchange process.
The "PCV" catch can kit (shown below) runs inline with the 3/8" PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve. When the intake manifold pressure is close to or greater than atmospheric pressure, the PCV "check" valve closes and, thus, this hose experiences no flow. Conversely, the PCV hose will experience "metered" vacuum when the engine is idling, steady state cruising, and decelerating. This would normally draw unwanted crankcase vapor, unspent fuel, and oil sludge into the intake manifold immediately after a high load run. Note: Because the Radium catch cans are pressure sealed, they are great for boosted applications as well so connecting to the intake manifold is permitted.
For the ultimate in engine protection, Radium recommends the S2000 "dual catch can kit" (shown below) which utilizes both the "crankcase vent" catch can (foreground) and "PCV" catch can (background).Crankcase Vent Kit Includes:-Radium billet oil catch can with integrated condenser and dipstick-Radium laser cut powder coated S2000 specific mounting bracket-Anodized aluminum -8AN hose ends and adapter fittings-Enough 1/2" PCV rubber hose to mate to custom applications -Vacuum and heater hose to eliminate OEM metal hard tube loom -Stainless steel mounting hardware PCV Kit Includes:-Radium billet oil catch can with integrated condenser and dipstick-Radium laser cut powder coated S2000 specific mounting bracket-Anodized aluminum 6AN hose ends -Anodized -6AN adapter fittings -Stainless steel mounting hardware -OEM spring hose clamps -3/8" PCV rubber hose
-Anodized -4AN O-ring barbed fitting -Nylon ¼” barb mini ball valve -6ft high temperature rated 1/4" rubber hose
This kit, sold seperately, can be used to remotely drain the catch cans without the need to unscrew the canister body.
