Oil Catch Can Install Instructions, L99 and LS3 INSIDE!

We have been asked by many Camaro5 members to post instructions on how to correctly install their Elite Engineering Oil Catch Can on an LS3, L99 and Supercharged Camaro.

Here are the pdf files, let me know if you have problems obtaining a copy. You can also download a copy from our website at:

http://eliteengineeringusa.com/Camar...nstall_LS3.pdf

Thanks in part to Alex (member: adub4185) for his help.

Glad I could help. Hopefully this clears up any confusion when installing these on L99's or TVS 2300 supercharged engines.

So does it route the same way on a LS3 as it does on the L99 maggie instructions?

Thanks for this... about 2 weeks too late for me, but others will benefit from it.

Fortunately, my shop figured out how to make it work on my L99 with the Magnacharger.

No it does not. If you check out the PDF's, one is unique to the LS3, while the other is for the L99/Supercharged engine. The routing on the supercharged engines and the L99 is very similar, so I kept it all on the same document.

I appologize for taking so long to put all of this together. I had promised to help Elite with this a while ago, but work got busy and I had a hard time getting my hands on an L99. Hopefully the way I described the supercharger routing is how it was installed on your car (which is beautiful by the way). If anyone has anymore questions, just let me know.

Thanks, the guys at my shop, IPS Motorsports, got it all figured out. They just needed to buy a bit of extra tubing.

That's what I meant when I asked about the routing on the L99 my LS3 has a maggie on it and was wondering if it was the same. Sorry for the confusion.

I just received my catch can yesterday...and when I went to install it, I noticed that both hoses are the same size... one is long enough, but the other that connects to the back of the engine isnt... Why wouldn't everything I need be in the order? Should I go and buy more hose?

Minimizes the amount of oil in the PCV system going into your intake. A couple of examples shown here.

If you search catch cans or PCV, you will find some indepth posts on how the system functions and why a cc in needed.

The catch can essentially creates a filter point to stop the oil from getting into the intake manifold and slowly killing ur engine

I got mine in the mail yesterday and put it in. Thanks EE!

I want one ...but don't know where I can mount it with a Vortech .. there is NO room .. the collant overflow has been moved with the vortech and will not mount there.. And on the drivers side even the Postive Battery post had to moved back a little.. Does anyone have a pic where they mounted this with a Vortech? Also on the Vortech there is no hose connection for the Catch Can .. So I would quess I need to order the "non" supercharger can.... Does anyone have a pic where you installed this on a Vortech?
