    That's the bracket I ordered. Easier install than my 392. I've had several different catch cans and the BT is one of the best. Quality piece and catches oil like crazy. This is one mod that is a must IMO.

    very good video, even a moron like me could do that!!!

    Now, someone tell me why I would want/need a catch can? If it's so important, why doesn't it come standard?

    I'm not bashing, I'm truly trying to learn.

    Been discussed at length, but basically you want to keep oil out of your intake. It won't cause any damage but it's not good for the combustion process. Lowers octane and gums up your supercharger. I imagine it doesn't come standard because it would be another maintenance item that manufacturers don't want to deal with.

    Hi, did the other brand catch can but is basically all the same process. The main reason I installed the
    catch can was to help prevent oil buildup on the supercharger's air intercooler fins which would lower
    the ability of the intercooler fins in removing the heat caused by compression of the air which inturn
    prevents the maximum HP generated. In other words "DO IT" LOL

    Ok I get that it can't hurt and is a good idea.
    But why are they so expensive? Seems to me they are simple devices. And I get choked thinking about the profit margin in them. Sure I get the billet expensive and so forth but why couldn't someone just make a steel can that looks decent at a cheap price.

    do you have to do any maintenance on the catch can? ie.....empty it out once a year or do a complete change out every xxx miles?

    I use a rather common sense approach: empty can at every oil change.

    Initially, I would check once a month, especially with the Hellcat. I have the BT catch can and it easily unscrews from the top where the fittings are, so no disconnecting is required. They offer a clear can where you can see the oil level.

    You can track how much oil is being lost.

    Then after emptying simply screw the can back on.

    How much oil are you catching (ounces or ml)?

    In some cases I would agree with you. And in this one I wouldn't want a pot metal one. But the design is fairly simple and works the same for all of them. A painted steel or aluminum can would work just as well and hopefully cost much less.

    I admit I'm cheap, but when it comes to my baby I am neither cheap nor wasteful.

    Did you just ask why someone can't build a cheap POS part for my hellcat? It is very apparent that you have no idea about manufacturing. The process, the design,the materials, the labor... did you ever hear the saying you get what you pay for?

    You do know this is a hellcat forum right? Are you sure that you weren't looking for a Hyundai forum? Maybe you should take those flames off the hood of your car and trade it in on a Hyundai? I am sorry, I am sure you bought the cheapest decals you could find so I am sure the will be pealing off in a few weeks.

    I just read that Costco is coming out with Kirkland brand motor oil, I am not sure if they are going to make 0-40 but no matter, the most important thing is the price. I mean it's just oil that's a "simple" product.
