Mishimoto now offers the new Baffled Oil Catch Can for the ’12-’18 Jeep Wrangler. The 2-ounce can is said to reduce the amount of harmful blow-by oil that coats the intake tracts and cakes your valves with carbon deposits. Internal air diverters slow the incoming air for more effective air/oil separation as a 50-micron bronze filter helps filter that air, and an internal aluminum baffle prevents any caught content from being recirculated back into the system. The one-piece, 2.5mm-thick steel bracket was said to be specially engineered to withstand a heavy amount of movement and abuse. The mount is secured on the chassis. Each kit includes black rubber hoses, a black powdercoated bracket, and is backed by a lifetime warranty. Information: Mishimoto, 302/762-4503, mishimoto.com
