ZL1 Catch can bracket

Looking for anyone that has a catch can mounted on their ZL1 where the bracket is not bolted to the radiator. I saw a picture of one bolted to the radiator bolt but that looked like a bad place to mount it. Anyone got a better set up?

So far all that I have seen are mounted the same way. Moroso's unit which isn't available yet, is mounted the same way. The extractor doesn't help the situation.

No issues with the current mounts yet and have sold/installed dozens. The dual valve system we released is the only one I'm aware of that traps all the oil and deals with the design of the new GM blower applications. Check w/Elite also, Steve may have a different bracket solution, but it mounts secure and makes use of the space well.

And if your considering any other than the ones tested to not allow a ton of oil to pull through, I suggest doing so. Very easy and you will be amazed how some well known brands let nearly as much through as they trap. The Elite, Mike Norris, AMW, Saikou Micchi (all direct competitors of our design) ALL let a fraction through and trap nearly all compared to most.

Mounting it on the radiator is solid. I was skeptical but it is as solid as can be.
