If you are looking at a forced induction application then I would recommend waiting on a dual valve RX can.

X2 The Elite catch can can be hooked up to work on a turbo application, but the RX can would be optimal. I suggest waiting it out. It is a better option for turbo applications.

Your close Ghost!

Yes on turbo or centri (front mount) blowers. The RX dual valve for up to 10-12# boost (Monster can above it) is the only system availble currently (aside from a belt driven vac pump that is the ultimate) that provides proper evacuation during both boost and non boost operation using two sources for evacuation and not venting into the engine compartment.

The primary valve uses the intake manifold vacuum at non boost and when the intake becomes pressurized, the primary valve detects this and automatically closes preventing any crankcase pressure from boost, then switches to the secondary source as that valve opens and uses the inlet side of the turbo (s) for evac suction during boost. Then the reverse when you fall out of boost.

you made a good call...due to volume and the potential of turning the boost up (lol) the rx monster can or dual elite cans would have been what I think a few on here would have suggested.

The 1LE set up is not the same thing. An Elite or RX catch can operates on the "dirty side" and the 1LE system is on the "clean side". Even with it in place you would still want to run a catch can.

Correct.

The Elite is great catching most of the oil (why we endorse it and a few others) but the RX is the most effective on the market period for trapping all or nearly all the oil, but we endorse the Elite as well. And as Chase pointed out, clean side is responsible for 2-3% of total ingestion which the 1LE does a great job of stopping. Dirty side is 97% plus.

I placed my order at the end of March and I'm still waiting for my RX can... it better be well worth this wait.

I bought the can before I even had possession of my Camaro because I wanted it on the car right away.

I ordered a RX as well and hopefully the wait isn't too bad. I decided it was worth the wait. I read several tech articles on the forum and he did an excellent job of explaining why his can works the best and overall anybody that has put that much research into a product and time to explain it deserves my money. Especially since it was completely objective and even suggested competitors that worked.

Also answered a bunch of questions I had as I can be a picky customer to work with and presented me with several options when ordering the RX.

The reason they are not in stock is because of exactly what you just said; everyone wants them. Demand exceeds their production capacity.

You want the best, you wait for the best. RX Monster can is the best, especially for turbo or FI applications. I run that and a 1LE Fresh Air PCV, best combo out there.

Keep in mind you can get $30 cans on Ebay, but RX Cans are the best. That's why the run, because so many people use them. They're not made in China & RX is a smaller sized company putting out big time products. They test everything to make sure it does what it's supposed to. Small wait for the having the best in your car.

Elite Rocks. I have had both and love the ease of empting the Elite on my 2013 vs the RX on my 2010.

We are working a shift and a half, paying overtime to try and meet demand....there is no can that matches the effectiveness of the RX.....countless tests by many to show....and Motion, try the pull through test: pick up clear glass inline fuel filter ($10 any auto parts store....has to be the glass one) and install it between any can you are using and the IM vacuum port and see just how much oil pulls through.

We have not added any volumne deaers for app 8-9 months as we cant keep up with demand. Dont know what else to do until we can secure funding to add more production tooling and staff.....but we do all we can. If this was just an equal to others I am sure the demand would be a fraction of what it is, but look at any can and how it is contructed/designed. No, ours does not unscreww....that would add another $15-$20 each to the price and allmost all polled have said the price is important as well as function. But almost any other can is just an empty shell with a small chamber at best (Elite.AMW/Saiku Micchi are the exception....they are good functioning designs) and all can catch oil, so you cant judge by " I drained my can and got oil so its working well" as most let more oil through than they trap, and try this experimant. Take a beer or soda can (or and container....youtube shows a mayonase jar used also) and add 2 fittings to it. Install same way and watch, it will catch oil,,,,and just as good as the poor functioning cans on the market. The small cans with the outlet right next to the inlet or the chamber where oil passes allows the flow to pull most oil right through and into the intake.....and you want NO oil in the intake air charge, not just a small amount. The RX can is the only can with app 7-14" between the inlet and outlet as it passes through 3 steps in 4 separate chambers each designed to caolesce, condense, separate, and trap all, or nearly all detectable oil from the crankcase gasses. NO can has as complex of a separating process and thats why it is so effective. Just take apart most any can, or look at the cut away pictures and explanations with all the popular cans on the market in the many threads out there to see. If it was just promotion and sales....we would cheap out and could easily meet demand with a good looking but inferior product as far as effectivness, but thats not how we manufacture or design ANY of our products.....and we dont sub out some other company to make these and slap a name on they or just call them ours......other then the CNC waterjet shop cutting the components out and intial welding, we do all the finishing and assy inhouse here....100% made in the USA. NOT a can that has 10-20-30 other brands on it sourced from a production company more concerned with qty and sales than function.

We have aonther 90 shipping this coming tue, but orders are running 200-300 a week and we can only produce 100 a week max right now. If we said yes to the dealer/distributers that have asked to carry them it would be over 1000 a week and there is now way we could meet that demand.

To close, if we just stamped out a simple marginally functional can then we could easily and abandon making the best preforming products of there kind and just let greed be the motivator, but as with all we make, we dont and wont.

So, it is worth the wait if you truely want to stop the oil ingestion and not just part of it. Also, you see me on a regular basis endorsing the other few cans that testing shows work very well (catching 75% plus of the oil which is substantial) driving sales to direct competitors...but have you ever once seen any of them do the same in return? No...thats not the corporate way. We shoot straight and if there are good alternatives we are honset enough to point it out even if it takes sales away. Show me any other doing this.
