    With all these new cats arriving, many will be looking to add some mods and an important one that comes with much debate, the catch can.

    Just thought I would share some of my research and where I settled on which one to invest in.

    Excellent research here for why you need one and which design works the best and why. http://www.106rallye.co.uk/members/dynofiend/breathersystems.pdf

    I'm going with these guys, had one on my SRT and loved it. Works perfect, well made, cost is reasonable and the design is superior. Challenger Oil Separators

    Many on this site has been asking me about when they would be ready. 20151026_132907_resized.jpg They have just finished making mounting brackets/connectors and all for the Hellcat. You can email them and get your name on a list for the new kits. Should start going out late next week.

    This photo does not show the new mounting bracket. This was just a test version. Finished version is brushed, smaller and one piece.

    We use my car for the test subject, took about 15 minutes to install!

    When I get the new kit, I will post photos of the finished product.

    Nice, they are good products.

    I just do not prefer their design. Their intake is on top, just my preference for the intake on the bottom per my research, yields better results. Also Bob's has a drain valve on the bottom for easier emptying.

    Any thoughts about the driver-side Catch Can? Thanks for your efforts, Bob.

    Learned that my cat is on it's way to Atlanta on the train. Then has to be transported to SC, about 100 miles.

    I went with the black version from BT because I thought it looked more stock.

    The purple ones from Billet Tech have served me well on my past two PCP Challenegrs. Got one ordered for the Cat as well... It'll probably be here a month or so before the car is.

    If you don't use the bottom drain you're left disconnecting a hose to do that? It also appears you're not in control of the final position of the bottom connection (since the base unscrews.) Those are deal killers for me I'm transitioning to mostly hard line plumbing. I'm not seeing anything that would place this high on my choice list, but that's just my 1c opinion as well so...

    Great! Want be long for ya then!!! They are balls of fun!!!!!

    Here is the one I have had on my SRT. You can see the mesh used to trap the oil mist which is trapped and falls to the bottom of the can. By using the bottom of the can to catch the oil mist, gravity is also used to keep the oil from getting out of the can. The exit hole at the top. The drain valve makes it a breeze for emptying. More than half the can is filled with the oil mist trapping mesh.

    How much oil volume does it hold before it begins to back feed into the pcv / rocker cover?

    Not sure I'm following you, how are you hard line plumbing??

    This was just lose mounted for I'm waiting on the 5/8" barbs for the correct fit to the hose. Also using the heat shrink over the barbs.

    Not really sure, would have to ask them or do a volume check. It's so easy to drain that on my SRT I would do it about every 1,000 miles.
