    For those who ask whether our "Cats" need a catch can. These are from just after a 2200 mile trip I took this week. You can see that there is about a 1/4 inch of oil when I emptied it this morning and YES it was empty when I left for the trip.

    This is the JTL.....I believe that the others work just as well, this just happened to be the first available.

    I have the JLT. I got about a half teaspoon from a 600 mile road trip. It definitely works.

    I have a JLT as well, posted about it previously.

    I had .5 ounces with 1k miles of driving. (Looked to be a lot more than just a 1/2 ounce of oil).

    I don't understand, with all the engineering that went into these cars and this motor, if it needs a catch can, why didn't the engineers put one on?

    A catch can mounts in line via the pcv system. It condenses and catches oil and oil vapors that under normal conditions would make their way back into the intake via the pcv lines. This oil gets "caught" in the catch can and you can empty it out every few thousand miles when you change your oil, or sooner if you wish. Hemi's have always had an issue with oil blow by so a catch can has been a long standing first mod for many folks. Many thought the hellcat would not need one as FCA built in an oil separator in the valve covers, but we quickly found that does not catch all the oil and a catch can works for the Hellcat as well.

    As stated we have catch cans and mounts in stock for the Hellcat, let us know if we can help
