Does anyone know of a Mishimoto OCC suitable for the high side, that looks like the low side one linked above? Not even sure if a high side OCC is necessary, but if I do get one, I'd like them to look the same.

On a side note, after more reading, it occurred to me that the head ports are passages into the intake. For some reason I had thought they went down to the crankcase, which is what was freaking me out about tapping them and the risk of metal shavings getting into the oil. So, in theory, with the intake manifold removed and valves closed, there shouldn't be a way for shavings to get into the engine by falling down when tapping, as long as I stuff and vacuum them out after I'm done and make sure I keep any shavings from dropping into the top of the head. Am I understanding this part correctly?

Pretty stoked about this and just ordered a bunch of parts to do at the same time as this.

2010 E92 MSport with 50k miles, all stock, owned for less than 2 months.
Aside from fluid changes and a couple of cosmetic mods, this will be my first big maintenance service.
External PCV
Plugged head ports
Low side OCC
Valve cover(leaking, possibly cracked so I'm replacing it, should also make it easier to install the new RB PCV)
Ignition coils
Spark plugs
Vacuum lines
Walnut blast
Intake gaskets

Can anyone suggest anything else while all of this is apart? I prefer to take the get in once and do it all approach. Would love to do injectors, but that will wait until I actually experience a problem due to cost.
Do not use the Mishimoto for the high side. It is a can designed for low side operation, nothing else. Not sure why they even offer a high side kit using the same style can, bad idea as you need high flow on the high side, so don't use it for that.

As far as stock yes they are in stock and all orders will ship out tomorrow (todays a Post office Holiday).

Thanks,
Rob

The plugs are nothing special they are simply socket set screws sized at 10-32 x 3/16" length (quantity 6 for 1 per port). Use JB weld at your own discretion.

Some tips on tapping/plugging the head ports are here:

Sorry, got my low/high side mixed up there. I meant it the other way around. Looking for a high side OCC that matches in appearance to the low side Mishimoto I'll be using.

Been selling these RB External PCV kits for nearly 2.5 years now and they've been an overwhelming success. Also we have mentioned it a few times yet it seems to always escape becoming a priority, but we are going to get on making a nice bracket for this Mishimoto can's attachment to the strut bar shortly if anyone is still interested?

Thanks,
Rob

Yeah we do not know the precise design yet (let alone cost) but regardless of how neat or elaborate we do not see it exceeding around $50... unless my OCD goes way overboard on design or something.

Rob, do you have the part number or link for a new OE Toyota PCV valve?

Is it 12204-15050?

Also will the rubber grommet loose seal if I remove and put a new PCV valve?

Oh my gosh, PLEASE! I would love a bracket. Currently using the BMS bracket and forcing that to work with a single bolt into the top of the catch can. Makes emptying the catch can a pain in the butt.

I would LOVE a bracket!

Hi Rob,

Just ordered your kit. I plan on using the mishimoto cen on the low side and understand how that works. On the high I plan on using the bms can. Where do you route the out on that can on plugged head setup?

I never saw the answer to this question. Can anyone confirm the Toyota P/N?

You can replace the PCV as you wish, the grommet will be fine. The grommet could need replacement eventually, if so no big deal it is a standard Toyota Part that you can get any any Toyota Parts counter.

Great. Coming soon a modular type bracket that will have an offering for both the Mishimoto and BMS OCC's (to better match them in appearance).

Uhhgg, yeah, we do not know this yet. It is a modular setup in that we can make a bracket setup for numerous cans, while "looking" very similar despite being cans of different function (which they need to be as such high flow for the ventilation side and high filtration for the vacuum side). They bracket is actually being finished up through machining now.

Cool sir. Will update this thread soon with pics of the bracket and pricing.

The website is very out of date. Indeed it is still available, and is actually becoming our favorite option as it is much more affordable and installs much cleaner when said and done. Please email if you have any more questions, without email notifications we can miss these things very easily.

PCV Valve to the Mishimoto In Port. Mishimoto Out Port to the vacuum reference. Hope this helps, although it is probably too late to answer.

The PCV Valve PN is stamped on the valve itself. So if you have the RB External PCV kit it is simple to replace the PCV Valve if you should ever desire, we recommend around every 50k miles.

In the future if anyone has any questions they can simply email us- usually respond the quickest that way... usually within an hour or so or a business day at max.

Thanks,
Rob

Long time coming on the ole list here, hopefully there are still some interested parties out there! Anyway here is a bracket setup we have developed that is modular for any sort of can provisioning (as long as it can mount close to the strut bar), but currently only available for the Mishimoto and BMS OCC's (Pick one, the other, or both). Pardon the socket head cap screws, just some hardware we had laying around. Production pieces will come standard with stainless button head cap screws for a better look (for both the OCC of choices) and also the oil can support to clamshell mount interface. We may substitute this interface for a nice thumbscrew (for ease of removal) if the desire is there, or perhaps we can simply make it an upgrade for those wanting one as they can be every bit of $10 each by themselves.

Also keep in mind this setup was designed around the 335 strut bar, and we are not sure if the 1/5/z series has the same bar profile (or under hood mounting space) but ideally the end user can use the pictures to guide them into deciding if this would work for them or not? Lastly the OCC support brackets can be rotated upside down if you do not want the RB Logo visible, although it is fairly subtle as it is all anodized the same color.

Going to try to gauge some interest to determine the size of our initial batch, all we have on hand are the 2 in the pictures. Anyone anyone?

Thanks,
Rob

If the price is right I could get 2, to better adjust position of both BMS HiFlow OCC and the Mishi Low OCC together on the same side.

Currently I only have the BMS OCC situated on the right hand side on the support bar and I've tried to place the Mishi can next to it but there doesn't appear to be room. It's either hitting something underneath or not enough clearance around the can etc...

Keep in mind this is with the factory Airbox in place.

Can you provide a picture of your current arrangement, maybe we can easily help decide if there is any chance for fitments with this bracket or not with the OE airbox.

Thanks,
Rob
