Why is an Oil Catch Can Kit so important? Because the 2.0L Ecoboost Motor found in the Focus ST is a Direct Injection Motor. In a nutshell, Direct Injection is when the fuel injector nozzles are located in each cylinder versus being located in the intake manifold, like most multi-port injected motors or throttle body injected motors. When the injectors are located in the intake manifold the fuel being sprayed passes over the intake valves cleaning them as the fuel enters the combustion chamber.



With Direct Injection, there is no fuel entering the system before the intake valves. Over time, the intakes valves will develop a crust that causes the loss of compression and a reduction of air smoothly entering each cylinder. This crust will eventually lead to reduced engine performance and costly repairs should they need to be cleaned.



The cause of the crust that forms on the intakes valves is from the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) System. While the engine is running, the internal rotating components get very hot, they splash around in oil and pressure is built up in the lower half of the motor that needs to be relieved. That air pressure contains trace amounts of finally atomized oil that’s got to go somewhere. Since we can’t allow it to just drip out on the ground, it’s routed back into the intake manifold to be burned off and while doing so, some of that oil adheres to the intake valves.

That’s where we can help. Available now, the JBR Oil Catch Can Kit has been specifically designed for the Focus ST. It’s placed in between the crankcase and the intake manifold to capture that hot oil vapor and contain it before it enters the intake manifold.



During the R & D process, when the throttle body was removed, we found an astonishing amount of oil on the walls of the intake manifold. And, when the throttle body was allowed to sit overnight we found that the invisible film of oil on it, had collected on the lower corner.







At the completion of testing our JBR Oil Catch Can Kit captured 2.4oz. of oil in just over 1180 miles. Now, we drive our shop car very hard, so individual results may vary but, there is no doubt in my mind that an Oil Catch Can Kit should be present on every turbo charged, direct injection motor.

Our kits come complete with everything you need to install it, nothing more to buy, no running to the hardware store for parts to finish the job. Also included, are full color installation instructions walking you through every step, start to finish.
