FORM AND FUNCTION – UNIVERSAL CARBON FIBER CATCH CAN R&D – CONCEPT TO COMPLETION

Get your Mishimoto Carbon Fiber Baffled Oil Catch Can Today!

In the world of aftermarket modification, there are two directions to go in with any upgrade. Form or function. Some might not care if the part looks like a work of art just as long as it performs, and vice versa. That’s an owner’s prerogative, and maybe driving around a box that hits the 300 whp mark and sounds like a grizzly bear is all you need. Other enthusiasts prefer a flashy set of wheels and a few want the best of both worlds, style and efficiency, which isn’t always available. It’s not easy to get that perfect blend. That won’t stop Mishimoto from trying, though. We’re aiming to create a little gray from the black and white of performance against aesthetics all while protecting your engine from blow-by.

Form to the Function

The business of defending the intake tract of any engine leans toward the side of function. Catch cans are installed to serve as a reservoir for that murky mix of fuel and oil aiming to infiltrate the intake manifold, and sometimes even mount somewhere out of sight. It’s no surprise that aesthetics doesn’t play a huge role in catch can designs, because as long as they keep your top-end safe, who cares what they look like? Well, we do, and I’m sure we’re not alone. Read more

GrimmSpeed, A Gentleman’s Catback Exhaust – 11-14 WRX, 08-14 STI Hatch

With so many catback exhaust options available, GrimmSpeed’s goal was to create a unique, refined sound in an extremely high-quality hand-welded system. They’ve been affectionately referring to it as the “gentleman’s exhaust” around the shop due to its refined tone. Available in both resonated and un-resonated options, their catback will be the perfect addition for any enthusiast looking for increased performance with a sophisticated exhaust note.

Quick Specs

  • Custom GrimmSpeed muffler – the design offers a deeper, more refined tone over OEM
    Quad 3.5″ double-wall, angle-cut tips – our most commonly requested configuration
  • Resonated or Un-resonated options – the choice is yours!
  • 304 Stainless Steel construction – genuine American 304SS material to withstand the elements and abuse
  • 1/2in thick flanges – all flanges are laser cut from the 1/2in thick stainless plate for perfect sealing, easy installation, and extreme durability
  • Flex section – your motor and mufflers are both mounted using rubber or poly mounts and can move independent of one another – if there isn’t a flex section or donut gasket allowing relative movement, there’s a much greater likelihood of damage to your exhaust or turbo
  • Custom adjustable polyurethane hangers – these hangers keep your exhaust where it needs to be, adding ground clearance, freeing you from rattles, melted bumpers and so on
  • TIG welded – each catback is hand TIG-welded just across the hall from the engineering offices that they were designed in, ensuring craftsmanship that does our Lifetime Warranty justice
  • GrimmSpeed Lifetime Warranty – buy knowing that we stand behind our products and customers 100%
