The RIPP Catch Can for 07-11 3.8L Wrangler JK is only compatible with supercharged vehicles and vehicles which have an open air filter without a heat shield. The OEM airbox and cold air intake heat shields block the mounting location of the catch can.
For vehicles which have already had the factory PCV valve hose to install the RIPP Superchargers PCV valve, you may need to purchase a new OEM hose so that both provided hoses reach. This is only if your factory PCV hose was cut in such a way that both catch can hoses do not reach. See install instructions PDF below for more info.
Your engine needs a Catch Can, it's that simple and RIPP has the best one on the market. the RIPP Catch Can System (RCCS)!
Oil catch cans are simple devices that can increase performance of any engine. The 3.8L Pentastar engines found in your Jeep Wrangler or V6 Mopar vehicles will greatly benefit from the use of a catch can as they are notoriously known for excessive blow-by gas. Not all catch cans are created equal and though there are many designs the RIPP Catch Can System shines above all the rest.
Here's why they're beneficial to your engine and how a catch can works.
Your engine relieves pressure from the crankcase through a hose that connects the valve cover to the intake manifold. This pressure is commonly refereed to as "blow-by". The ventilation of blow-by gases allow oil and gunky condensation into the intake manifold. This actually leads to more serious issues like contaminated intake air and carbon build up around your intake valves. Contaminated air is when the crank case fumes actually mix with clean air thus lowering your octane. This leads to pre-ignition or pinging. This will cause issues with tuning and overall engine power. Even worse these contaminants will start to build up inside the intake runners and valves. When left unchecked this buildup can hurt fuel economy, horsepower, and can even cause misfires. A Forced induction engine will naturally have more blow-by gas, so if your vehicle is supercharged this catch will help control it.
Adding a catch-can will prevent oil and other contaminants from causing buildup inside your engine. Essentially the catch can will act as a collection system. Installed into the crank-case ventilation hose to "catch" the contaminants before they can reach the intake manifold. The RIPP catch-can is focused on filtration and baffling. The RIPP Catch Can System (RCCS) has an integrated baffle plate and aSintered Bronze Filter which acts as a liquid/fume separator creating an extra layer of filtration. This cleans the fumes as they pass from that can into your intake. With the RIPP Catch Can System you are covering all your bases to make sure you're getting the best filtration and separation on the market all it a package that's easy to own and maintain.
