APR Presents the MK6 Oil Catch Can System

APR Oil Catch Can for the MK6 Golf / GTI and Jetta / GLI!

[ Link removed per forum rules ]



The APR Oil Catch Can System traps excessive crankcase oil vapors and gunk from entering the engine. The system eliminates a possible performance robbing boost leak, while reducing carbon buildup on intake valves, octane lowering oil vapors and oil pooling within the intake tract. Itís a simple modification to install, drains in seconds with the flick of a knob, and is recommended at all stages of performance.





Quick Facts
  • Increases performance - Increases performance by eliminating a common boost leak, and reducing octane lowering oil vapors and airflow restricting carbon buildup.
  • Eliminates a boost leak - Bypassing the PCV eliminates a possible failure point.
  • Catches oil and gunk - Oil and gunk pools in the can, not in the intercooler piping.
  • Easy to drain - A simple knob allows the system to drain in seconds without any tools.
  • Easy to install - Installs in minutes. The hoses pop right on without tools thanks to the OEM Norma fittings.
  • Easy to maintain - Yearly maintenance is a snap thanks to the two-piece billet design.
  • High-quality hoses - Resist oil degradation, kinks, abrasion, and blockage from freezing, with an OEM look.
  • High-quality can and bracket - Strong, clean and attractive billet-aluminum and stainless steel parts look right at home in the engine bay.

The Problems

An engine produces extreme pressures within its cylinders during operation and some ultimately slips by the piston rings and pressurizes the engineís crankcase. This is exacerbated when increasing horsepower and driving harder. To relieve the pressure, the engine uses a failure prone PCV system that dumps the pressure, along with oil vapors, back into the intake tract to be consumed by the engine. Unfortunately, this results in the following performance robbing scenarios:


  • Oil vapors mix with the air/fuel mixture, which reduces octane and hurts performance.
  • Carbon builds up on the back of intake valves, which reduces airflow and hurts performance.
  • Messy oil pools in the intake tract and coats the intercooler, leading to hose degradation, and reduced IC effectiveness.
  • The factory PCV system can fail, creating a massive boost leak that directly pressurizes the crankcase.

The Solution

The APR Oil Catch Can System eliminates boost pressure from seeing the front PCV port. The system routes crankcase gasses through the APR catch can, which filters oil vapors through a track-proven four-staged baffling system. The vapors pool in the bottom of the can, while the rest of the pressure is diverted back to the intake tract where itís burned off by the engine.



The result is simple:
  • A cleaner engine
  • Better performance
  • Elimination of a common failure point

System Overview



REQUIREMENT NOTES: The manifold PCV port must be blocked off to use this product. This can be accomplished with the APR boost tap. Also, the system is only designed for use without the factory engine cover installed.

Glad to see APR is still invested in MK6!

I like the mounting location on this vs others that mount to the oem motor mount and don't work well if you have aftermarket mounts.

Thank you! Plus, in this location, it's easier to get to the drain.

APR Presents the MK6 Oil Catch Can System

Hi Arin or mods - my comment was deleted, why was that?

I'm not upset, in the future I will try to avoid commenting something inappropriate on a product launch thread.

Hi Arin,

With this kit, what happens with the OEM PCV Breather Hose (06J103213D) ? There's no mention of it at all on the APR website.

Mods can still see deleted posts and there are none on this thread. My guess is your comment probably didn't go through. It's probably best that way considering you said yourself that it was inappropriate. Take it to the off topic lounge where that sort of thing goes appreciated. I'm sure APR would appreciate this kept to serious talk about the catch can only.

It was not inappropriate, I was more or less requesting why it was deemed inappropriate.

Regardless, it looks like it simply didn't go through - appreciate your reply.

I asked what makes this catch can different than other catch cans already on the market for the MKVI and why the price was on the higher end - also that I am new to the platform.

Thanks for helping!

Ah ok that's a legit question. I'm sure Arin can answer better than I can. It's a different design, apr retains the oem pcv where others replace the valve cover.

I'm surprised they're peddling the 'reduced carbon buildup' narrative that was debunked ages ago...???....

I was thinking the mention of other brands or pricing could be against the rules!???!

Idk - I'm not very forum savvy.
