    Isn't a passenger's side catch can sufficient or do I need one on the drivers side as well?

    Looked at the BT video for the passenger side install and it couldn't be simpler!

    Thank you !

    Drivers side unessesary. Good choice on BT. Quality piece. If you're going to go with them spend a few extra dollars and get the braided hoses. They are stouter than the basic ones and won't kink. PM me if you have any questions

    Thank you, yes I was planning getting the braided hoses.

    Also do you recommend the Metco Valve Cover Breather for the driver's side as well ?

    Breather valve probably overkill but that's just my opinion. It won't hurt, but catch can seems like enough.

    Two cans are better then one on the hellcat. Google ccv bible by Arrington it will help you get up to speed

    Maybe the Shelbys were different but guys who bought drivers side cans never caught any oil total waste of money. Pretty sure its the same system on the Hellcat.

    imo defeat the possibility of foul air entering your air intake by installing a high quality check valve in the cc evac. makeup line drivers side and use the Metco breather valve to vent pressure.

    That side can see pressure but it's based on what you're doing with the car e.g. drag, rapid full throttle starts, pegging the accelerator, rapid engine braking, backfire, fast high boost etc. Those things usually are brief and infrequent but are examples when it can happen. So a catch can this side will trap little because it will rarely be required.

    A high quality check valve inline, make up side, plus the Metco check valve eliminates any chance foul air can enter the intake.

    Why even route the hose back to the intake? If you route them down near the bottom of the engine... then they'd be just like "overflow hoses", but the catch cans would stop a majority of oil from dripping.

    I'm no mechanic, but I just don't understand why one would want to re-introduce nasty crap into their air intake.

    Today's setups (oe) are to meet emmisons requirements. Makeup (driver side) is normally air in. Whatever you do suggest filtering it and use a cold air source.

    Ok... I found an answer to my own question:

    This is from a dual catchcan with open PCV product: Universal Dual Catch Can

    I see. Since I don't have emissions checks in my county... I may go open PCV and route the hoses near the bottom of the engine so they don't have oil accumulate around the cans.

    Bad idea on Hellcats. You need a valve on the passenger side to the intake plenum trust me. And the pcv, although not it's purpose, is preventing some blow by.

    This is a very effective setup.
