The stock MX5 breather system works well, and at low rpm and partial throttle conditions it pulls a vacuum to reduce crankcase windage. The downside to this factory solution is that it recirculates all of the oil vapours directly into the inlet manifold, this reduces the effective octane rating of your fuel and reduces the performance of your engine.
The DaveFab dedicated MK3 / NC Recirculating Catch Can is designed to fit perfectly in the engine bay and is supplied with hose and clips for a neat install. The internal baffle separates suspended oil vapours and allows them to be collected preventing oily intakes.
The Catch Can bolts to the existing mounting holes so is totally reversible – no need to drill holes in your car.
