Really, I was wondering about that and it just seems so likely that someone would do just that, install them in the reverse order. Anyway I sent the diagram to RX, Karen to be specific, since I'm waiting now on the hose "connector reducer" $6 from JEGs, because the connections on the can and air intake are different sizes, 3/8th and 1/2 inch. But I figured I'd send RX the diagram I'll be using to do my install. Also suggested stamping the top of the cans 1,2,3 next to each inlet/connector with instructions like connect hose 1 to the manifold inlet, connect hose 2 to the valley etc... That way we would have clear and concise install instructions. Reading thru all these threads you end up more confused with all the different people arguing over which way to do the connections.

I noticed some of the hoses have check valves in them, does the ZL1 need the two hoses with the check valves? Just wondering, the hoses I received Do Not have the check valves.

I think the RX uses check valves in the top of the can or the fitting on the top of the can. Can anyone confirm that?
Not sure how much it maters since the factory system doesn't have check valves.

the check valves on the RX cans are located in the top of the can. You probably received one piece of 3/8 fuel line and it a cut to fit piece. My only problem was getting the fitting that you ordered from Jegs. I ended up getting mine from advance auto for 2.99 . I just wish the "T" fitting on the roto-fab would've had 3/8 on one end and 1/2 on the other.

The install is done! So here's how it all went. Got the wrong bracket, but it didn't matter because I didn't install to the radiator shroud. Instead I used the threaded hole (there are two, I used the one furthest to the left) in the crossbeam below the radiator. Placed the can in the highest bracket position so I have plenty of room underneath to open/close the drain. Also it didn't come with enough hose so I needed an additional two feet of 3/8th and I also had to get a one foot piece of 1/2 inch hose since the Roto Fab "T" is 1/2 inch. Plus a hose connector reducer 1/2 to 3/8th which was another six bucks from JEGs. So like an additional $12 to do the install

Once I had everything I needed, it went in super easy. Probably like 15 minutes. Here's a few pictures, I wanted everything to show as little as possible. Oh, I still need two Black Zip Ties. Had to use white ones, that's all I had on hand, but will replace those ASAP.

Took my ZL1 in yesterday for its second Oil Change at the dealership. Had my catch can on for 500 miles or so, opened the drain and Not One Drop. NOTHING, Nada, Zip, the drain hose still looks brand new. I was expecting a few drops at least, but nothing came out. Any opinions? Just not enough mileage on her, I know 500 ain't much, but I thought I'd at least get a drop or two or something starting to make its way down the hose??? Oh well, next oil change if I get nothing I'll know Houston We Have A Problem!

you should have had something in the can if it's working like it's suppose to. I've got the Moroso can and I opened it after only 50 miles and this is what the can already caught. I would imagine 500 miles would bring plenty more.

It depends how hard you've driven your car on those 500 miles.
I only had a little bit in the can after two drag races. And so far, since I bought my can (over 6000 miles ago), I have not reached 1 oz of oil yet.

That's a nice can, like the way you can open it up. What's the rest of it look like, and can you see the guts of it? My RX can is solid, screw valve with a drain hose dead center bottom. Maybe I shoulda blown some air into it in case it was clogged up or use my small shop vac and see if it can pull anything out.

I have the Moroso can. Put it on about 2,500 km ago and today I did my 2nd oil change @ 7,288km

I got less than an ounce, maybe a out 3/4 ounce
I figured that's good news
1. It works 😄
2. I'll only need to drain it every oil change

....a catch can that has three fittings, such as the RX ZL1 product....the center fitting is the engine block oil source <valley>, the outside fittings have the check valves and are the vacuum sources from the intake fitting on the SC and CAI assembly T fitting. Boy I messesd that all up initially. I'll just give up trying to explain stuff....LOL.

Not sure what that means? 500 miles on my can and not a drop of oil, nothing at all came out. I have the three valve RX can, and I did my connections just like in this diagram.

I finally received my dual catch can last week that I had AN fittings put on from RX. I have a Roto-Rab intake system on my 2013 ZL1. Is there any photos of anyone has a dual catch can set up with Roto-Fab? I need to know how I hook up the last hose to the intake. I have a dual house bib connector for the vacuum connection from Roto-Fab intake kit. Do I need a special fitting to attach the AN hose to the intake vacuum inlet?

...the center fitting on the catch can, the one in the middle is, the engine block. The outboard ones have the check valves and go to the SC and CAI. I fixed my first thread. Boy did I mangle words up....sorry for the confusion! LOL.

The very beginning of this thread has some really great pics. The third hose to the air intake. Should find everything you need to install in this thread. Good luck, its pretty easy to install a catch can.

Here is a general question - why is the standard to use EPDM hoses vs replacing with lighter convoluted plastic tube (moonwall I believe) with quick connects? I need to verify, but I believe the part being removed is from my company. For any of the sponsors looking for a lighter setup, PM me as we have a specialty parts group that will quote this type of product - custom cut to length pieces with installed QCs.
