    Thinking Im going with the JTL catch can in the Satin anodized finish (like in photo) as to me, matches the supercharger color better than most and looks more stock.

    Q1) What brand of catch can do you prefer and why?
    Q2) Is it needed?
    Q3) Will it harm / change anything?
    Q4) Any issue with Dodge warrantee?

    I see some other post about catch cans but I welcome any thoughts from you folks using them or thinking about buying one.

    I have the JLT CC and I like it a lot. I think it is necessary, just due to the fact that after about 1k miles I am pulling 2-3 tablespoons of oil out of it. Also I think the fit and finish is good, it took all of 15 minutes to install and looks almost OEM TBH (I went with the black finish though.)

    I fitted the JTL catch can. Seemed a very reasonably priced product and I was not looking for bling. In about 650 miles I had a bout 3/8" of oil in the can. So in my mind without doubt it is a worth while investment. Will I buy another one when the bring out a dual unit for the drivers side. Yes I will. Is there a downside. Not that I could think of.
    p.s. I went for all black

    To answer your questions.
    Yes a catch can will catch oil on the Hellcat, we have been running catch cans on all of our Hemi cars for the past decade, and usually the first mod we do.
    Adding one will not affect warantee
    Nothing will be damaged by installing one


    We have a catch can mount that will work with our UPR can as well as several other popular cans. Take a look here. Benefit is a sturdier mount than JLT, as well as a larger can that is easier to remove, the UPR can also has as drain which makes it easy to empty. You can also still unscrew it to empty it as well.

    Mount alone if you already own a UPR/BT style can

    Not a big fan of those pinch mounts on the SC.

    It's not a pinch mount, a lot of folks seem to think it is a clamp of sorts, which it is not, it is machined to slide around the oem bolt, underneath the mount are two small blunt set screws to secure it. I think bascadog can speak from experience on the fit of the mount as he has had it as well as the JLT

    Correct. I have installed both. The jlt one did bolt on to an existing thread which was nice but the bracket was flimsy. The jlt can was ok... Until I saw upr can . It is much better and I was surprised the Speedlogix sc mount is solid as a rock once the 2 screws are tightened. I still think the hose set up could be improved though but I'm nitpicking

    Well after looking at your pictures I can say that your bolt on the engine where the bracket goes is much much shorter than mine. After installation I had 3-4 threads visible after the nut. Weird that the bolt would be in so far on yours. Sorry for the bad experience and hope you find something that works for you.
