Mazdaspeed3 10-13 Oil Catch Can Kit Stage 1
Great quality part by Damond Motor sports. Works very well with high quality can and hoses. The best part was the customer service. My shop had some questions about the catch can. I called the customer service on a Saturday because I needed my car that day. Matt Damond actually called back in an hour and answered all my shop's questions even though he was suppose to be off that day. It really does not get better than this and will continue to use his services.
Easy to install ( With the intake mani off for valve cleaning). nice quality hoses. The OCC itself was a really rigid and high quality part that was powder coated perfectly. It was so nice I almost didn't want to put it on the car. The nice ball valve and included hose attachment for draining makes for easy and tidy emptying of caught oil. The installation directions were a bit confusing, especially since I wasn't installing from under the car. It was difficult to figure out what the photos were looking at.
The craftsmanship was top notch, installation was fairly simple, granted I had the intake manifold off to do a valve cleaning already so that simplified things further. I'm happy with it so far.
As a Master Machinist I can attest to the quality of the materials used and the craftsmanship of the catch can nice welds clean look and nice heavy layer of powder coating. Well done! I await receipt of my stage 2 catch can that I just ordered.
Again nice work people!
The catch can, valve, and hoses are clearly well made parts. Putting them in took me the same amount of time as an oil change (I know because I changed my oil while doing it). Didn't have to remove the manifold, just took off the skid plate and came up from underneath. Getting the stock PCV hose was the hardest part, since it hadn't moved for years. After that, routing the hoses and mounting the can was a breeze.
