Airtec Breather Catch Can for MINI Cooper S R56


As part of our expanding Mini product range, AIRTEC Motorsport is proud to launch our oil catch can upgrade for the R56 Cooper S model, suitable for track or fast road use.

Oil catch cans are vital preventative additions to ensure the performance and efficiency of Direct Injection engines doesn’t deteriorate over time.

AIRTEC Motorsport’s solution to developing a catch can kit specifically for the R56 Cooper model utilises the available space to integrate seamlessly within the engine bay. It features a high-quality laser cut bracket, finished in powder-coated satin black, which allows the catch can to attach neatly in place.

There is also the option to add a breather hose, which is required to fit the AIRTEC Motorsport intake pipe/induction kit.

The can itself features an internal baffle and dipstick, and detaches to allow easy maintenance. It comes with a comprehensive fitting kit that includes all fixtures and fittings, as well as a detailed installation guide.

Why do I need a catch can?
The original oil breather set up can cause issues with carbon build-up inside the engine’s intake system over time. It forms an oily sludge that covers parts of the intake and inlet valves, which reduces air flow and therefore performance and efficiency.

Once the build-up has formed, it’s a costly process to clean, so it makes sense to take preventative measures in order to avoid carbon build-up forming. A catch can also filters harmful contaminants before they can reach the inlet system.
