Catch Can Help
 
OK............. I know it's been discussed to death. Wanted to get some info from local folks about "the catch can". Those that have one and maybe they wished they had something else? Also, if you know me............. I want something that works and looks good!!!!!! Appreciate your input :pop2:

I ended up with Elite Catch can. You can get it a few different colors. The screw off bottom makes it easy to empty. Comes with a few mounting bracket options. Has a nice compact size and does the job well. Get the chrome fittings for a better look as well.

Sorry I'm not local, but I'll still give my opinion.

I personally prefer the Elite Engineering catch can due to the draining/emptying method. Being able to physically unscrew the bottom of the can and pour it out like a cup is more convenient than having a hose and valve to drain. Not to mention the Elite can is readily available rather than waiting 6-8 weeks for the RX catch can. The only perk that would push me toward the RX can are the custom color options.

Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions. We have the Elite Engineering catch cans in stock with free shipping and upgraded nickel plated fittings at no extra charge. Have a great weekend! :thumb:

Hey Tracy, Just wanted to thank you, and everyone at RevXtreme. I bought a catch can from you, for my 2005 CTS. Well since installing it i'm not consuming any oil anymore. I've had a close eye on the oil level since i have installed it and it hasn't used a drop. I don't know how or what that catch can has done to prevent the oil consumption. (I've read your tech tips article and understand the concept of how a catch can work.) I guess i am just baffeled that it something so simple like that could work.

Anyway just wanted to thank you. I was at my last wits end with this car and was about to put it back on the market, after the dealer replaced two motors under warrenty.

I'll be purchasing another catch can from you in the future. I have a 2000 Camaro SS that is getting a turbo as we speak, as a fun project street car.

But thanks again. It was definetly worth the wait.

Same here, it is down to the Elite or RX catch cans for me. The hiss reported by some scares me a bit thought, but not enough not to get one.

Here is an Elite vs. RX thread, mostly opinions, but the forced induction seems to favor RX:

Miss Thing, trivia for you as to where you've see my car before.

to me.. i doesnt matter which one you have.. they are both good for the car.. i have the RX catch can.. actually bought it before i traded in my 2LT for the 2SS.

I have RX. Don't know how worthwhile it is, but people swear by it to the point that I just assumed my car would explode if I didn't put one on ASAP....

Don't know how I drove around in other cars for all those years without one...

I have the elite can. I bought from JDP. I also made a video of the catch can install on the LFX engine. I just happened to check the other day, there is a nice amount of oil I that thing. If the oil isn't suppose to be traveling through the hose, I can't fathom why it wouldn't be an option from the factory.

Actually, the one in this picture will work as well or better than 90% of the ones on the market. Most are just empty containers with fittings attached, but are far to small so even the condensed droplets much get pulled right through. the size of this is large enough to out perform even some of the big names believe it or not. Years ago as a joke, we took a beer can and added 2 fittings and it worked as well as most.

RX, Elite, and Saiku Micchi are about the only ones that work real well.
