The mike Norris can is one of the better designs. Can go wrong with it.

The link you posted shows a bottom draining Mike Norris can. So other than capacity it looks externally very similar to the RX can.

In the installed location it looks like it would be a pain to get to the valve. RX usually mounts theirs in an easier to access location.

Internally they are very different.

I do not know about the Norris can or it's available mount points. Sorry.

I worked with Elite to help design their mount on the LFX engine cover bracket. So I know it is possible to mount the cans in such a location. Whether Norris makes a bracket like that is another issue.

Do be aware with a bottom draining can, you have to secure the drain tube so it does not come into contact with moving parts.

When it comes to catch cans, the sooner the better.

Should be installed ASAP if you plan on keeping the car for a long time.

With some items that is very true. Catch cans are one of those where it is definitely true. You can by a cheap catch can (typically $50-100) that is basically an empty can with two fittings. It will catch a little bit of oil but the majority will pass right through. An effective baffled catch can costs more to design and manufacture therefore costs more to buy.

Right now I would strongly recommend going with Elite Engineering. RX is in a very deep back order. 8+ weeks.
