Part 11 (Catch Can) of the DAP MK7 GTI Build

January 24, 2016

The MK7 is still a pretty new platform and it remains to be seen if this model will be plagued with the carbon build up issues found on the 2.0t TSI and FSI engines.  Instead of waiting to find out we decided to install a catch can on our car to ensure that we had a second line of defense to any potential vapors which could contribute to the carbon issue.


If you are not familiar with catch cans, why you would want one or what they do, take a look at the video we put out below.  It explains this system in much better detail.


Here is the catch can we installed on our car

    Thanks for the install guide; it’s super helpful for me to decide on if I can install this catch can based on my wrenching abilities.
