Default [NB] Powder-Coated: '01+ Valve Cover, PCV Catch Can

I have decided not to pursue the insanely-modded level of miata-ness and will be parting with a few nice items that I have yet to install. All of these were professionally cleaned and coated by Brian ("SignatureSound" on TheMazdaForum) and are clean and spotless, inside-and-out. All of the sharp, crude casting marks have been smoothed for a very natural look. Take a look at the pics from the coater, they have sat in their boxes for the past 7+ months. Prices are OBO and include shipping to CONUS.

1. NB '01+ VVT valve cover, powder-coated wrinkle red with satin-black powder-coated oil tube, vvt actuator thing, and blackets. Black -8 AN oil fitting replaces stock PCV outlet. This fitting would have a line going to the black catch can (included) and then from the catch can back to the intake manifold. The catch can has a vacuum-operated one-way check valve that would replace the stock pcv system for a more robust (clean) breathing (no oil coming from the pcv into the intake/combustion). - $250 shipped

2. '99-'00 VICS Intake Manifold, powder-coated satin black, with wrinkle-red coated brackets - SOLD

***Also, if you request, I can take some pics of my own in crisp lighting to really capture the color of the parts. The wrinkle red is a very true red (not like the red-orange it appears in the pics)***

Below are the links to more pics of when these parts were coated in the thread on TheMazdaForum (where the coater did his primary advertising):

The Valve Cover? No...it never went on the car...has been in the box it was shipped in for 7 months. Is there something specific you're referring to? (Like where the catch can could go?)

I just wanted to see how the setup would work/look.
How would it attach to the intake.

Well that depends on what route you would want to go with lines...

If you wanted all pretty braided lines (kinda the point of the nice threaded fittings):
1. Braided -8 AN line running from valve cover (where pcv used to be) to lower barb on catch can. Swivel hose ends on each end.
2. Braided -6 AN line running from upper barb (check valve) on catch can to the intake manifold vacuum barb previously used for the pcv hose. Swivel hose end on catch can side and a worm gear clamp on the intake barb, you would want to have a dressed-up one like this for a braided line:


***This would require a -8 AN to -6 AN reducer on the top fitting of the catch can, as the stock intake manifold barb is technically compatible with a -6 AN line***

^The reason for the reducer is because I had originally planned to use this catch can with my recently sold modified manifold that had a -8 AN fitting in place of the stock barb.



If you would prefer to use push-lock or regular vacuum lines, you would want barbed AN fittings like these:


-8 AN on valve cover, -8 AN on lower barb of catch can, -6 AN on upper barb of catch can (again, requires a -8 AN to -6 AN reducer). -8 AN line between VC and catch can, -6 AN line between catch can and intake manifold barb. Done. Reminder: As with any type of push-on vacuum hose, you would want to throw some worm-gear or stock-like pinch clamps on them to ensure they don't come off the barbs when driving.

As for the catch can....you could mount it wherever you want; that will influence how long the lines will be...it comes with 2 brackets that could be easily bent in any way to place it where you want. One note: make sure that the line going from the valve cover to the catch can always has a downhill slope from the VC to the catch, and does not rise back up or anything. This ensures that any blow-by makes it all the way to the catch can and does not coagulate in the line at some dip (this should be common sense).

Would you be willing to part catch can separate from VC?

Not at this time...but I have someone interested in the whole package and will check in with me next week. Until then, I do not plan to separate.
