The 6.2 liter LT1 is an animal of an engine, but like any engine, does not enjoy oil in its intake. Enter Mishimoto’s Camaro SS baffled oil catch can! Designed to protect the LT1’s intake from becoming an oil slick, this catch can mounts in-line with the PCV system to separate oil and air using a 50 micron bronze filter. The Camaro catch can is mounted away from most intake and supercharger kits to help leave room for future modifications.
This new GM LT1 engine features direct fuel injection, which is great for creating an efficient burn, but allows for carbon build up on the intake valves. Engines with conventional port injection have fuel injected into the intake runners, which helps to wash carbon deposits off the valves. This isn’t the case with the Camaro’s LT1, making the addition of a catch can vital in preventing increased carbon buildup.
Mishimoto’s 2016 Camaro catch can kit features Mishimoto’s 2-port Compact Baffled Oil Catch Can which features a bronze filter and internal baffle to better separate the oil from the crankcase vapors. Two direct-fit silicone hoses and an application-specific bracket make for a quick and simple installation. To back up Mishimoto’s superior craftsmanship, each Camaro oil catch can kit comes with the renowned Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty!

After installation, Mishimoto recommends checking the contents of the baffled catch cans every 500 miles until a baseline is established. Oil blow-by accumulation will vary with ambient temperatures and driving conditions. It is important that the contents of the can do not rise above the internal baffle.
This only fits SS models with the LT1 engine
The catch can kit can be installed without removing the intake manifold, by attaching the supplied silicone hoses directly to the manifold.
