    After a hot long day today the Billet Technology PROTOTYPE DUAL OCC is in my car for the first set of test on the new mounting point and can set up. WHAT YOU SEE IN THE PIC IS ONLY TO TEST MOUNTING!!! They are working on making new fittings so there will not be and cutting of the pipes at all so what you see in the pics is just a PROTOTYPE and the finished set up will be a very easy clean install for a nice factory finish. (also clear frosted bottoms like the ones installed in my car are an extra option and will not come on the cans unless you upgrade to them on your order cans will come made of all billet as in first pic). Should have something very soon for the N18 as well with 100% fit guaranty.

    Let me know what you think, if you have any ideas to make it better or a different idea for mounting let me know as well. As of now it is mounted on a bracket that holds the ABS system (its an open bracket and has 100% no effect on the braking system at ALL!! it just holds the ABS to the wall and is very sturdy.

    Till all the fittings are done and tested they have no clue but they are doing everything they can to make the cost as low as possible and they are going to set up a group buy right off the bat as long as they can see there are people out there that are interested :postcount

    I dont suppose there will be any alternative mounting for those of us that have CAI that fill that entire space?

    I'm not really interested in one of those NAM like group buys, they're generally a train wreck of whining

    If they go production, please let us know, I'd very likely purchase (assuming their gonna clean up the Prototype look for a little cleaner appearance)

    Thanks for the post!

    the transparent cups you see are special order only it will be make of all solid billet. as for them handling the temp yes with out a problem.
    and yes the fitting in the pic you are asking about is set up for O-rings but they are being changed a lill for better and easer install.

    Yes the will be a way to mount it for those with CAIs in the way of that spot, against the back wall were your old air box would have been. the motor bay as we all very well know dose not leave much space for us to do much for mounting options... this is what the guys at the billet shop and myself looked like trying to find a good mounting place for this can set up :mad2: :cryin: :deadhorse:

    I think you picked a great mounting spot for the dual OCC. I don't think you could have found anywhere else to get it to fit in the engine bay. And the fact that the spot works with OEM and CAI is even better.:Thumbsup:

    Looks very impressive. I really like the mounting point as well. I haven't had a chance to look inside my engine bay yet, but if what your saying is true about how sturdy it is, it will be a good thing

    I just bought a catch can kit for my VW and something that it has is a flange that fits between the oil return line from the turbo and the oil pan. The flange has a threaded hole in it that you screw a barbed fitting into to attach a thin silicone hose to that attaches to the bottom of the can. The can then drains straight to the sump and never needs to be emptied. You might want to see if they could look into that for the MINI. It would be a huge selling point. Here's a link:

    Looks good. I hope you will post here when the production models are available.

    The drain system seems interesting, but would it need a one-way check valve?

    No check valve needed, the sump is not pressurized.

    Isn't there vacuum at the other end? Wouldn't the same forces drawing the oil vapor from the sump be acting on the return tube?

    None of the big motor high horsepower VW tuners use one with their kits. The way it is set up in my VW is if there were forces that would push the accumulated oil, it would push it down into the sump. After the engine is shut off, then it would be gravity that would have it drain into the sump since the can is positioned above the engine and sump. I haven't even seen any accumulation in my can since it drains into the sump, but I guess someone could add a check valve for reassurance.
