    2015 WRX catch can

    I have a elite engineering catch can from a previous car that I never installed. I want to put it on my car since I have it just laying in my tool box for the last 2 years. Has anyone installed one in their car yet or can anyone give me some advice maybe even some pics on how to go about installing it. This is my first subaru and I've come from n/a V8's mostly.
    Thanks

    Wouldn't have a clue. It's a newer engine and new for the wrx community. It would have to depend on what the previous car was and then check with the manufacturer of the catch can to see if they know.
    Placement could be way different but install I believe would be similar.
    You could also check with the frs and brz club to see how they went about it if done so but again since it's a naturally aspirated engine it could be different

    The big question: is it necessary?

    Subaru filed a patent for an integrated air-oil separator in 2013 before releasing the FA20DIT in the FXT. Subaru engineers understood that blow-by and DI make a poor combination, and may have taken steps to resolve the issue.

    The can I had was for my 2006 GTO. So I doubt the company would have install for a subaru when elite engineering does a lot for chevys. Also I don't know if it is necessary but I have it laying around and it can't really hurt can it? I heard about subaru filing that patent but I don't think anyone has seen anything like that for the engine. But I am worried about blow by and how bad those valves can get from DI

    Nope, no harm in installing one
