Decided to purchase a Condensator
a few months back as an alternative to the normal pcv catch can because of its website claims and Artifex's original review here
This operates like a normal catch can except that it filters the blowby gases through a glass bead-filled separator. Now based on their webpage I originally thought this was supposed to be some catalytic system but in fact it doesn't work like that. Here is an exerpt from an email they sent me:
"The condensator has a double-walled catalytic separator made of tiny glass beads and is solid on the end. The gasses normally traveling from the pcv valve to the throttle body are rerouted via the head of the condensator through this catalytic separator. Because hot gasses travel at a pretty good speed, when they hit the solid end of the separator they come to a dead halt. Thus employing a principle of physics called Collision Principle. Between the sudden stop and hence, rapid cooling we manage to create a separation of high-end burnable gasses (such as oxygen etc) and lower end non-burnable fuels such as CO2, sulfuric acid etc. High end gasses are allowed to travel on through the double walls of the separator while the lower end gasses are trapped in the jar and liquefy. The benefits to this process are many-more efficient use of fuel, clean exhaust system, significant reduction of tailpipe emissions(70%), and many more."
Installation is easy except that the condensator is huge. It was originally designed for trucks and for some reason they haven't scaled it down much since then. Artifex had a nice spot in his 5th gen but that wasn't available in the 4th gen. The only really decent spot I could find was wedged between the distributor and intake, sitting on the rad hose.
Even then, to make it fit I had to chop off a part of the top. As you can see mine is a circle while the lid of Artifex's has the squared off section for mounting. All of that was shaved off with my dremel
It comes with about 4' of hosing, all the worm clamps you need, and mounting screws if you want to go that route. It's a very solid piece, thick plastic, and everything fits well together.
