I have read all the catch can articles here and have one on order. But I am not sure I need it. I'm getting the idea it's good for guys who use the car to perform. I do not. I am retired, and bought it to run around town - truthfully it's been a boyhood dream to own a SS camaro, I love it. I drive only about 6K a year - never on the interstate, just around town. Do I need one? In two years I'm trading it on a new Vette, also a dream of mine...so what's the verdict? - should I install one?
thanks to the experts in advance!

If you plan on only owing it 2 years then a catch can's extra cost wouldn't benefit you. Your engine, yes, you, no. I use the EE can and have since around 30 miles. Did the aggressive engine break-in process and during that time found a few ounces of oil in the can. I plan on keeping my car though ... so the catch can and the clean air side 1LE Air Oil separator are on my car.

Has anyone used the G8 bracket with the Elite can on a ZL1 with a CAI? I ordered this setup today from Maryland Speed.

Hi was checking my RX catch can today and noticed the wing nut was fastened all the way up. From what I have read it's suppose to be all the way down to work properly. But when I brought the wing nut all the way down the oil that was captured came running out. So is it suppose to be this way or is it on the RX catch cans for the ZL1 it's reversed and closed is with the wing nut all the way up? Thx for any insight.

So how important are the check valves on a dual outlet can for a ZL1 or a ZR1?

You don't need check valves with a positive displacement S/C; just the standard fittings are fine. Check valves are really only needed on a centrifugal supercharger or turbo setup.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Will This Modification Void My Warranty?
