Catch Cans done right for Hellcats! Install should complete this weekend. (Phase 1 anyway ;))

It's going right here. Fabbing proto mount right now. It'll do to move this forward and for most. I'll secure it further with a separate rod that connects to passenger mount side and then to the open threaded hole on the rocker cover.

I gotta get these in because the same mount will hold a new pcv and néw check calves.

Ultimately I'll likely set up final with just one can (because my makeup side no longer needs one) but this will show what to do if your run two.

Mount done this version just 14 guage steel plasma cut). Then fit it together test tweak make a few, send one off for billet. Cad the final duplication.

Was easier than I thought. This one's good enough to mount plumb and proceed.

I sourced the oe fit loc connectors for the rocker covers and makeup connector in the air box tube. That was a score they're 10 time better than the Ford or others I see used. Plus their 5/8ths native so all big hose runs, 0 flow restrictions in this setup.

Having them next too the snout pulley will look good, plumbing will be correct and sharp.

All right,

(Remember this is proto work no digs or stay out of thread please.)

Edison it seems wants me to follow his path, NOT LoL. I'll nail it tomorrow.

This was 45 min of work so I expected this.

1st issue forgot need depth to unscrew, no biggie (so I thought) a few tweaks who cares it's a proto v1. Wrong oh well.

The cans are too far to the right.

Bending the bracket lifted the cans they need to sit lower in the bay, easy fix.

(And that brought them forward that won't do for my hose routing. Easy fix.)

The next iteration will allow for acess to tmap sensor plugs without can removal. Simple.

I'll likely also hollow the mount, in the end it will be 3/4ths inch border, pass through center.

And a few other tweaks.

The pic gives you general idea of location only.

It's missing the connecting support to the rocker cover. Intentional figured I'd miss on placement 1st and that has to happen to size the missing rocker side support.

(One pic does show scale re can size.) (You see how these will FLOW.)

(Later I'll show how you can mod adjust filtration simple simple.)

Brother sometimes (every time for me) you get an idea and it take some work to perfect, it looks great and your solving the issues, 110% I believe you'll get it perfect in a day or so

Does look professional. Did you achieve the numbers you were looking fo with the check valve set up?
I'm not done there. I did deal with the cc pressure the pcv leak was causing. People really want to install at least 1 on the cc passenger side.

All of this works together. You'll likely only see 1 catch can in my car when I'm done. The new tunable PCV will be mounted next to it.

I don't need a 2nd catch can because makeup side can only flow vacuum now, pressure is released through the Metco filter check valve that replaced the oil add cap.

In the end oe pcv replaced, vent check valves both cc sides / lines, 1 catch can, the Metco filter check valve, new pcv next to catch can oe pcv guts removed so it's just a hose connection, until Metco makes an AN adapter.

I am going to test running no pcv at all. I'll do that buy downsizing the check valve on the makeup side, so it will flow slightly less than the one on the vent side. If that works, there will not be the cost of replacing or upgrading the pcv, or using one. But I'm concerned I might not hit my goal to reduce blowby doing so. We'll see.

Are you seeing any oil vapor getting on the underside of the hood or anywhere else from the crank case breather?

Once you get the mount fully baked I think that will end up being a nice setup.

What's the plan for hose routing to the left side?
