    Ok, I bought the can for my Cat and I am holding off on the install. After inspecting the assembly and reading the following in the instructions....." To properly clean the filter in the oil separator, remove it with a pick or small screw driver and spray any degreaser or solvent through it and let it air dry. Clean it every 5,000 miles."...........I have an uneasy feeling of the potential of the filter coming loose and being sucked into the intake. I did not pry out the filter yet to see how it is retained.....owners of the can please chime in to squelch my fears....

    I think that applied to their other design with a removable filter cartridge. I don't think the little screen on the one they sell for the Hellcat comes off.

    Pretty sure the filter element is a sealed unit. It's too big to get sucked into the intake.

    If that is true, then my CC from JLT did not ship with one. I have seen the filter elements on cans for others cars. My hellcat one does not have it.

    What does your filter element look like?

    The screen just pulls out...then will go back in with no issue.

    Small filter (screen) supports converting oil vapor back into a liquid.

    It's too big to exit the catch can via the hoses.

    Don't have any issues with mine.
