Default Catch Can In Your Q30?

Will anyone be installing a catch can in their Q30? I heard it's beneficial for turbo engines to have one to catch all the gunk.

Yea, for turbochargers need catch cans that works to prevent oil blowby. If you don't add one, the oil can coat the couplers and fins inside an intercooler. Just make sure to research them before buying one because there are catch cans out there that doesn't do much of anything.

I don't think the aftermarket guys have started working on Q30/QX30 mods yet. I can't seem to find any parts for it, especially not a catch can.

Maybe try to see if there is any for Merc A class? They might share the part.

I'm a firm believer in running a catch can. It's never a bad idea to play safe when it comes to your engine. Reducing any blowby is better than letting it all-by. Hopefully something like the D3PE catch can comes out, love the way they look.

Maybe the Mann ProVent cans will fit as they do come in various sizes. Was hopping there would be a model specific can in case the universal ones do not perfectly fit.

I'm sure someone will be developing one soon. Majority of the time when there's a turbo engine out, someone is developing a vehicle specific application for it.

More mods like the catch can should be be hitting the market once the Q30 goes on sale globally and the aftermarket can get their hands on one.

That's the main thing, once they can get one as a volunteer vehicle, parts will start flying out I think

That means the first aftermarket catch cans will be coming out of Europe since the Q30 is already on sale there and they can get their hands on one easier.
