tvs2300 RX catch can help.

can somebody please post pics of proper routing of a RX catch can hooked to a tvs2300. I just changed my oil (3K interval) and went to empty my catch can and it was dry as a bone. Yes, it was closed correctly (spun all the way out). I was collecting some before my supercharger install but now im not collecting any, something seems funny.

It goes from the back of the drivers side valve cover to the inlet on the can. Then from the outlet on the can to one of the 3 vacuum inlets on the drivers side front of the tvs.

Maybe that will help you, different can, but you will get the idea...


I think that was someone from the forum... Thumbs up for doing that!

Rear of drivers side valve cover to center (inlet of can) and outer of can to vac barb on blower (wilhead has it correct).

SC2150 - So with the new style SLP TVS on a 2012 what kind of mounting bracket & check valve setup do I need?

cant help on the can ,,,, but I would move the idler pulley closer to the belt tensioner pulley... that will put more tension on belt and prevent slippage

It's nuts tight. We used a smaller belt then what came with the kit.

I'm getting less now too then before the TVS2300.

Here's what I'm thinking. When we were running without the Maggie, the barb was right on the valley plate and there was no baffling. Now we are pulling from the back of the valve cover and maybe there is better baffling there?

Hmmmmmm? It's my belief that it's needed based on what I've seen that collects inside these superchargers but , you make an interesting point .

I'm also guessing that you have an extra 10 feet of hose now where the oil is condensing. Let that saturate and you'll start getting more in the can.

Also you might be collapsing the long hoses? The longer the hose means harder to suck! Lmao
