    I've been scouring the forum and it seems that alot of members use catch cans. I did some research and it seems to make sense. The less contaminants being pushed back through the engine the better and it's really a simple design/upgrade. Basically an ounce of prevention is an ocean of cure sorta thing. So with that said, what is everyone using for there catch can set up? Did you purchase one or did you make one. Pics and links are always welcome. Thanks

    I use a Billet Technology can on my SRT and am currently investigating what is available for my new 6.4L powered Ram.

    Moe's Performance has them so check out their website linked at the Vendor section. They are getting ready for a Black Friday sale and may have a coupon available on these.

    Moroso makes quite a few catch can styles and I believe Jegs has them in their catalog as well.

    Here's a pic of the BT unit I use on my SRT.

    I run a dual catch can system on my engine with an independent vacuum source. One can is a Billet Tech (green) and the other is a UPR can (silver); there is a very definite difference in quality of fit and finish between the two with the BT one being much better quality. The UPR one is taller and narrower but holds the same capacity as the BT one and the UPR does have a 1/8"npt hole on the bottom if you wanted to add a drain which the BT doesn't have.

    I used the Elite Engineering Oil Catch Can, very nice finish and available in several colors .
    The internal passage head design I believe is better than some others that's why I went with Elite Engineering.

    Also a good read here on oil catch cans

    Yes we can, but we only stock them in the satin finish with regular PCV hoses because BT has a 20 business day lead time on any cans in color or with braided lines.

    What did you use to keep it at $30. I've looked online and everything I've seen is over $100 for these?
